When planning out life insurance, many people look to what financial concerns would need to be taken care of in their absence, including college funding, debt payments, income replacement and home ownership. With universal life insurance through The Lewis Financial Group, you can get peace of mind in knowing your insurance program will take care of the needs of your spouse and children.
With a universal life insurance program, you can minimize the amount of taxes and maximize the return on your policy to benefit your family. As a permanent life insurance product, universal life insurance is a tax-free benefit that passes directly to your beneficiary without being subject to probate or public record, allowing your family to discretely use the funds to take care of expenses and other financial demands.
As an additional benefit, universal life insurance can provide a tax-free retirement income option for you, as well as provide equity you can borrow against to help fund college tuition or cover emergency expenses. This life insurance is also flexible since you can make contributions over the years to help grow its value, with tax-deferred growth that can continue to accumulate throughout your life.
