Purchasing life insurance can do more than provide a financial benefit to your family when you die. It can help you save for retirement or invest your income. Choose a life insurance policy with a cash value account to do both and let Allen & Associates Insurance Inc. help you build a nest egg you can rely on throughout life and that your family can rely on after you die.
How Life Insurance Can Serve Your Investment Needs
Originally developed as a product to help the wealthy save money for retirement, cash-value life insurance evolved to serve all levels of income in Albany, OR and beyond. A cash value account provides both life insurance and an investment or savings account tied to the premiums you pay for life insurance.
Here’s how it works. Every month, you pay a premium for your life insurance policy, just as you normally would. The premiums on a cash-value life insurance policy cost a bit more than for typical whole life insurance. That’s because they pay for your life insurance policy premiums and a small deposit to a savings account that works either like a mutual fund or an investment account that earns at the same rate as a major index, such as the S&P.
You Choose the Type of Cash Value Account
Some cash value options offer a high-yield savings account. Another of these policies uses an investment account. Whichever you choose, most policies include a provision that precludes you from losing the money paid into the account. Most guarantee a specific annual earning, although it might only be about one or two percent. Once vested, you can use the account as collateral to borrow against.
