Is it possible to…
Retire tax free?
That is the ultimate goal, isn’t it?
To retire tax free may seem impossible. However, there are ways to create an income that is not taxable. For example, one option is to use an indexed universal life insurance policy (IUL). If you have an IUL insurance plan, you may have a way to retire tax free. In fact, an IUL gives you access to some of your cash without having to pay taxes on it. Importantly, your individual financial situation will impact whether an IUL will work for you. So, make sure you connect with us to review your options and learn more.
Why it matters
Retiring Tax Free
Some things are universal truths in life. For many people, taxes seem to be one of those truths. But, what do you believe about taxes? Do you believe that they will rise in the future? Most people do feel taxes tend to increase. Therefore, the question is: how will this affect your retirement income? Indeed, tax changes often impact retirement plans. Or, increases in taxes sometimes hit your money hardest after you pass away. For example, loved ones may end up with a tax bill. No matter your beliefs about taxes, it is critical to have a plan on how to handle them.
Think about this: which assets of yours are taxable versus non-taxable? The answer to this may impact whether or not you can retire tax free. Some types of retirement accounts have tax codes that make withdrawals taxable. In addition, if you have money in certain types of accounts, your money may be at risk. In fact, stock market volatility impacts many accounts. However, an IUL does not have money in the market. Therefore, your money is not at risk in the market. Each policy is different in terms of its details and benefits. Importantly, IUL’s can provide more than the ability to retire tax free.
