Benefits of Keeping Your Universal Life Insurance in Your Professional Corporation

Benefits of Keeping Your Universal Life Insurance in Your Professional Corporation

Did you know that your corporation can purchase a universal life insurance plan? Purchasing universal life insurance through your corporation can build the wealth of your corporation and help you to save on taxes. Here are some ways that business owners can use a universal life insurance policy to fill their life insurance needs and save money on their business. Speak to a Vistaplan advisor today for more information. 

How Do I Save Money with A Universal Plan? 

When you purchase a corporate universal life insurance plan, you save in a few ways.  

  • Premium amounts can be taxed at a lower rate than income 
  • The value of the plan at your death will add to the overall value of the business 
  • The value of the plan is set in the long run; there are no questions about liquidation or who will continue to run the business and reap benefits 
  • Death benefits are paid directly to beneficiaries 
  • Beneficiaries can be family members, shareholders, workers, or any other listed person or entity 

What Else Does a Universal Plan Offer Me? 

With a universal life insurance plan, you have many options available to you to save additional money, keep things in order, and grow your business's finances. You also have the option to make flexible payments. You can pay more in on a good month and make minimum payments on slower months. This is an excellent option for seasonal businesses. 

You can completely customize how and to whom the death benefits will be paid. Deposits that add to the value of the death benefit can be taxed at a lower rate than regular income. The policy also allows you access to funds if your business runs into a snag at some point. Another added benefit is that many banks will take the cash portion of the policy as collateral for a loan should you need one.
