Family Income Protection focuses on securing the financial future of families during times of financial instability and creating liquid, tax-free cash flow. It revolves around the use of Cash Value Life Insurance which has a cash component that grows in value over time. Owning such policies enables individuals to control their own cash flow by lending to themselves instead of relying on external banks or lenders for loans.
Once the policy is active, it holds value and can be borrowed against. This allows the policyholder to withdraw money from the policy as a loan (using the policy as collateral) for managing unexpected or substantial expenses that might arise during their lifetime or simply as tax-free income as part of a comprehensive tax optimization strategy..
The most prominent benefit of the Family Income Protection strategy is the significant improvement in liquidity or cash flow. The value of a Cash Value Life Insurance policy is much more liquid than other forms of assets like real estate. This is because policy loans can be processed swiftly, providing the individual with quick access to cash, usually at lower interest rates than those offered by conventional lenders.
One thing most families don’t take into account is the unexpected or sudden passing of a breadwinner, leading to additional stress on top of the already difficult grieving process. Cash Value Life Insurance can provide your family the protection and income they need and deserve in the unfortunate event of your passing, reducing stress and letting them continue to live the lifestyle you worked so hard for them while alive.
A policy loan can also be beneficial during periods of unemployment, whether due to health issues, a family bereavement, or job loss. Since Cash Value Life Insurance policies are non-correlated assets – they’re not subjected to stock market fluctuations – they are designed to maintain their value.
The boost to an individual’s cash flow can be considerable, especially during periods of financial stress or unforeseen expenses, such as medical bills or the necessity for a new vehicle.
