As you’ll see, there are many factors including:
- What is the funding source for the premium?
- 1035 exchange from an existing life insurance or annuity policy?
- Qualified funds?
- How do the clients want to pay premiums?
- Single premium?
- Payment schedule?
- How many years?
- Combination of Both?
- What is the health of the client(s)?
- Some insurance carriers are more favorable than others for certain medical conditions. If uncertain that the client can obtain coverage, we can consult with an underwriter beforehand.
- What is the age of the client(s)?
- Certain options are not available at all ages.
- Some options, like inflation, may not be advisable at certain ages.
- Does a joint policy make sense?
- It’s a more cost-effective way of providing coverage for spouses or domestic partners.
- Spouses can be included to receive benefits even if funding with annuities or qualified funds from only one of the two.
- How long do the clients want benefits to last?
- A specified duration with a pool of benefits?
- For as long as needed (lifetime) with unlimited benefits?
