PERMANENT WHOLE LIFE INSURANCE
Permanent Whole Life Insurance not only leaves a death benefit for the beneficiary, but it also offers a cash value benefit that grows TAX-FREE!
The Policyholder can access this cash value during the lifetime of the policy to leverage wealth using the Infinite Banking Concept.
Participating Whole Life Insurance:
Dividends are paid to increase the cash value of the policy. This cash value grows tax-free and can be accessed by the Policy Owner throughout the lifetime of the policy. The Infinite Banking Concept uses Whole Life cash values to leverage wealth.
Non-Participating Whole Life Insurance:
Simplified permanent life insurance with lower premiums since the guaranteed death benefit does not grow and no dividends are being paid to increase the cash value. It is popular for those who need coverage for final expenses.
