city mouse goes to the country
My Boston bestie and her son Jack came to visit this month.  Their big adventure started in Montana, then they drove through Jackson Hole, WY and wrapped it up here in Idaho.  We showed them some of the best of country living - big trucks, bull riding, and horseshoes. Jack's goal is to visit all 50 states before he graduates high school.  Although he has quite a few under his belt already, these two have a lot more traveling in their future - graduation is only five years away!
With going back to school on everyone's mind, now might be a good time to talk to your clients about their plans to fund college.  One option is using index or variable life insurance.  There's a death benefit to cover costs should anything happen and the potential to build cash value to supplement costs while living.

Are your clients looking for the potential to supplement college funding?
Fixed index universal life (FIUL) insurance can help!  The cost of college has risen even higher. Upon the death of the insured, the death benefit proceeds can be used to help fund college. The accumulation potential of FIUL may also provide an opportunity to supplement a college funding strategy (or for any financial need) by accessing any available cash value through policy loans and withdrawals. Plus, FIUL comes with several powerful tax advantages: 
  • An income-tax-free death benefit
  • Tax-deferred accumulation
  • Income-tax-free loans and withdrawal
