65-year-old mother of 1
Living off social security
Her Challenge: She knows it is her responsibility to cover her funeral costs so her daughter isn’t burdened with any debt when she dies.
Her Solution: She purchases a whole life policy for $12,000 (the average cost of a funeral).
Payments are set up to be withdrawn the same day social security benefits are deposited into her bank account.
Currently paying into a 401k
His Challenge: He knows that when he withdraws his 401k money as he gets closer to retirement, he will be paying more in taxes than he is now. Possibly as much as 50%.
His Solution: He rolls his 401k over in an Indexed Universal Life (IUL) savings vehicle which will allow his to take loans from his balance tax-free, whenever he wants.
He now pays into his IUL instead of into his 401k allowing him peace of mind in his later years.
Meet Mike & Mandy
Ready to withdrawal from their 401k
Their Challenge: They are hesitant to withdraw their money because they lose so much from tax-deferment and have no life insurance since their work policy lapsed upon retirement.
Their Solution: They roll their 401k over in a Fixed Indexed Annuity which provides a life time income payout regardless if there is money left in the account.
Their annuity pays them thousands a month to supplement other incomes they receive.

New home owner
Her Challenge: Tina wants to do everything she can to provide for her child, but with her new home, she is hesitant to put money into a ‘temporary’ insurance policy. She is afraid she won’t have anything to show for at the end of the policy.
Her Solution: She purchases a 20 year term policy with Return of Premium, which means if she doesn’t die during the 20 years, she will get a check back for all of the money she has paid to into the policy as a lump sum check.
She can use this money for her then-20 year old to help with college, purchase a car, etc.
