Life insurance is an effective way to help protect your family's lifestyle and future. Plus the cash value in a whole life insurance policy can be accessed via policy loans and withdrawals can be used to help you supplement your retirement income. Loans accrue interest and reduce the death benefit and cash value. This cash value can also be accessed and used for other major life events. Life insurance can play an important part in estate, business succession, or charitable giving plans.
Whole Life insurance is also known as permanent insurance. You receive coverage for your entire life, as long as premiums (which are a set amount per period) are paid. Whole life policies accumulate cash value tax-deferred.
Term Life policies provide coverage for a specific amount of time – such as 5 years, 10 years or 20 years. Term premiums are often less expensive than whole life premiums, but once the term of the policy is complete, coverage terminates. There is no accumulation of cash value.
Like Whole Life, Universal Life is a permanent insurance policy, which means that it covers you for your entire life, as long as premiums are paid. Universal life, however, offers you flexibility that enables you to change your premiums and death benefit as your needs change.
The policy will terminate if at any time the cash surrender value is insufficient to pay monthly deductions. This can happen due to insufficient premium payments, if loans or withdrawals are made, or if current interest rates or charges fluctuate. **Issued by New York Life Insurance and Annuity Corporation.
Survivorship life insurance – available as whole life and universal life – covers two people and provides payment of the proceeds when the second insured individual dies. Survivorship life insurance is often used to help meet estate planning or business continuation goals.
The policy will terminate if at any time the cash surrender value is insufficient to pay the monthly deductions. This can happen due to insufficient premium payments. If loans or withdrawals are made, or if current interest rates or changes fluctuate.
An annuity is a unique financial vehicle designed to help you accumulate money for your retirement and/or turn a lump-sum of money into a guaranteed stream of income payments. Deferred annuities offer the advantage of tax-deferral and can be used to accumulate money for retirement. Income annuities are used to generate a stream of income payments that is guaranteed to last for as long as you need it to – even for the rest of your life*. Some of the different types of annuities are:
*Guarantees are dependent upon the claims paying ability of the issuing insurer.
Fixed Interest Deferred Annuities
With a Fixed Interest Deferred Annuity, the interest rate on your policy is guaranteed* never to fall below a certain amount. For many people, this provides a measure of security.
Subject to a sales charge for early withdrawals and may be subject to income tax. Withdrawls prior to 59.5 are subject to a 10% tax penalty. *Guarantees are dependent upon the claims paying ability of the issuing insurer.
Lifetime Income Annuities
An income annuity where income payments begin immediately - one period after the annuity is purchased. It is designed to provide you with predictable income monthly, quarterly, semi-annually or annually, no matter how long you live, and regardless of how the financial markets perform.
All guarantees associated with Annuity Contracts are based on the claims paying ability of the issuing insurance company. Withdrawals may be subject to regular income tax, and if made prior to age 59 1/2, may be subject to a 10% IRS penalty. In addition surrender charges may apply.
Disability and Extended Care Needs
