Life insurance is a crucial step in planning for your future and the future of your loved ones. It can fulfill promises made to your family if you are no longer around by providing a death benefit to your beneficiaries in return for premiums paid to the insurance company. Life insurance can also provide benefits while you are living.
The cash value growth of a permanent life insurance policy is tax-deferred1, which means you do not pay taxes on the growth of the cash value unless the money is withdrawn.
Loans2 or withdrawals can be taken against the cash value of a permanent life insurance policy to help with expenses, such as college tuition or the down payment on a home.
(1) Accumulated growth may be taxable upon withdrawal. If the policy is a Modified Endowment Contract (MEC), tax penalties may apply prior to age 59 ½. Consult a tax advisor on your specific situation.
(2) Policy loans and withdrawals reduce cash value and the death benefit and may be subject to other charges outlined in the contract.
