Income Rider Maximization

Many clients elect to take a joint payout option when purchasing an income rider so that income is guaranteed over the lives of both spouses. A potentially better strategy to increase income and reduce taxes is incorporating life insurance within the income plan. By electing the single life payout and taking the difference between that and the joint payout you can fund a life insurance policy. At the death of the first spouse the tax free death benefit can be used to continue the income stream for the rest of the surviving spouses life. This strategy can be especially impactful on distributions of qualified funds as the benefit from the life insurance policy will only be partially taxable if dumped into a life only SPIA as opposed to 100% taxable over both clients lives. Call today to see this concept illustrated.
