Life Insurance Advantages
A life insurance policy provides you and your family members with several significant advantages in the event of an emergency or other life events. It can help offer assurance to your family members in the event of your death as well as offer benefits that you can utilize when living.
Death Benefits – If you were to pass away, your life insurance policy will provide a tax-free income to the people that are named as your beneficiaries. This money can help pay for many things such as funeral expenses, college or school tuition, debt, or almost any financial need. If you are a business owner and have partners, it can help prevent a forced liquidation by buying out the interests of a deceased partner.
Life Benefits – You are not required to pay taxes on the cash value growth of a permanent (whole) life insurance policy—unless you withdraw the money. You can also take out withdrawals or loans against the cash value of your permanent life policy. This can help with such expenses as school or college tuition, down payment of a home, or home repairs.
