Mortgage Protection Insurance
For most American families, the mortgage represents the largest source of personal debt, a debt that can easily default in the event of the primary breadwinner's death. SFG's premier product, mortgage protection
insurance, is a specialized form of life insurance designed to pay off the mortgage if that should occur, so that families can keep their homes no matter what.
Term Life Insurance
Death is an emotional time for a family. In addition to bereavement, there is also the loss of income and the looming threat of unpaid bills. Term life insurance pays families a cash benefit if death should occur, easing their financial burden during a difficult transition.
Mortgage Disability Insurance
Death isn't the only thing that threatens a household. Disability can just as easily cripple a family's ability to make mortgage payments. Mortgage disability insurance protects against this, ensuring payments are made regardless of the insured's health or ability to draw income.
Retirement income is no longer as certain as it once was. It's becoming increasingly important to have a sound financial plan in place. With an annuity, you can guarantee income for the rest of your life and enjoy your golden years without worrying about the finances or burdening your family.
Equity Indexed Universal Life (EIUL)
Like traditional universal life insurance, equity indexed universal life (EIUL) offers numerous advantage including flexible premium payments, low cost permanent life insurance, tax deferred growth of cash values with borrowing ability(1), tax free death benefits (2) and the ability to adjust a policy to meet specific personal or business needs.
The major difference with equity indexed universal life is the option to participate indirectly in the upward movement of a stock index without accepting the normal risk associated with investing in the stock market. The actual interest credited to a policy’s cash value is determined by the annual changes of an equities index (excluding dividends). Most insurance companies use the S & P 500 Index® (3) as the underlying index for their equity indexed life product.
With equity indexed life, in years where the underlying equity index increases, the policy cash value is increased up to a certain limit usually referred to as the growth cap. The cap varies among insurance companies but is currently somewhere around 10-14% annually. In years where the underlying equity index is flat or loses value, the cash value is subject to the growth floor. This combination of the potential to realize higher upside returns without the downside risk makes the equity indexed life insurance policy a unique and attractive cash accumulation vehicle.
As the chart below shows, the real value of the equity indexed universal life policy is its ability to earn a credited interest rate higher than a traditional universal life or whole life insurance policy without accepting the risk of loss associated with the variable universal life policy. The equity indexed universal life policy is designed to capture the best elements of both the fixed whole life and the variable life policies enabling it to earn an acceptable “middle of the road interest rate” without taking on unnecessary risk.
Why Buy Equity Indexed Universal Life?
A primary reason to buy equity-indexed life insurance is its ability to grow and accumulate cash values tax deferred without risk of downside loss. The indexed account feature of equity indexed insurance allows the policyholder the option of indirectly participating in the upward movement of a stock index without accepting the normal risk associated with investing in the stock market. Cash values allocated to the indexed option have the potential for higher interest credits than a traditional universal life policy without the potential risk of loss inherent in variable universal life insurance. The combination of tax deferred cash value growth and the ability to earn higher interest credits without risk of loss makes the equity indexed universal life insurance policy a sound choice for anyone seeking to accumulate cash.
