Retirement Safety Net

Everyone wants to have a comfortable retirement and unfortunately on the path to retirement there are a number of factors that can derail an individuals retirement plan.   Things such as death, disability, and LTC needs can be devastating to a family as well as to a retirement plan.  Cash value life insurance with LTC/chronic illness and WOP riders can be an effective mitigation tool for these risks.  In the event of an LTC scenario the death benefit can be advanced to help with costs, in the event of disability the policy will continue to fund ensuring that there is a retirement nest egg when disability benefits stop, and in the event of death instead of the beneficiaries just receiving their account dollar for dollar they receive an inflated tax free death benefit.  Call today for additional details.
