BEST GROWTH DESIGN APPROACH;
Determine maximum capital contributions over future 10-15 years desired to compound tax-free
Apply for a policy designed for the MINIMUM required LTC/Life benefits that retain IRC 7702 tax-free provisions
With flexibility permitted, add capital to fit max funding design as fast as cashflows allow
Long term commitment
Requires more complete health exam and underwriting
Requires initial multi-year contribution planning (actual contribution amounts can be flexible)
Premature policy cancellation subject to substantial penalties
Annual market upside growth is typically capped or fractionated, and rarely supercedes 20% annual interest
Initial dollar contributions incur 1st year expense burdens of 6-8%, subsequently declining in expenses annually.
Gross total annual average fees typically drop to or below 1% by 15th-20th year (thereby roughly equalling traditional portfolio management fees, without traditional portfolio loss risks.)
*Guarantees backed by the claims paying strengths of the offering insurance companies.
Questions & Answers
Question: I got the policy disclosures, and it says the ‘guaranteed rate’ is just 1% (or it might say .03%, or some other number,) and I thought all the policies are paying 2%… what gives?
1. In the insurance language, the term “guaranteed” means “can never go below.” The rate actually paid is frequently called the “current” rate, or “declared” rate, and is generally reset each anniversary to the then-going market rate for that product.
2. The hurdles for approvals of various products from various insurance carriers have been wildly shifting throughout the last 90 days, and (especially for Option #2, with a bare minimum of deposits required,) we have been placing each applicant in the product with the best terms offered (generally prioritizing on lowest minimum premium required,) for their age class and health status. SOME of these have been as follows at various stages;
> GILICO @ 2% declared, 1% guaranteed
> Global Atlantic/Forethought @ 2.75% declared (minus age-based LTC fee, typically 0.6 to 2.0%,) 1% guaranteed
> OneAmerica ($20k min,) @ 1% cash growth rate, 1.05% LTC growth rate.
3. Our “triage mode” and “life boat” mode has been to place each applicant in the option costing them the least to qualify to get out of the WA Payroll Tax, with the shortest application/review/underwriting turn time queue,
4. NONE of these “minimum deposit” solutions are truly suitable for proper LTC protection planning… if you want to protect your spouse and family from realistically expectable critical, chronic, home-based and institutional support expenses, we encourage sitting down with us to develop out a more comprehensive plan. In most cases the immediate “minimum” solution you’ve acquired can be transferred into a more comprehensive plan.
5. NONE of these “immediate fix” solutions are optimized for wealth accumulation. If you want both family protection *AND* tax-advantaged accumulation features, *THIS TOO* can be done… and it can be done arguably giving you equal or better features than the products required for the Payroll Tax exemptions, however the better products would not themselves qualify for the exemptions (because you would be provided “too much control” over your benefits in the better products.) If THIS is what you prefer, we also encourage scheduling to sit down with us for a more comprehensive plan that your current solutions can then be transferred into over time.
Question; Can I pay my premium with a credit card (because, you know, “benefits points!”)
Answer: At present you can pay up to $3,000 on a credit card if you have a OneAmerica policy, and the rest of the balance can be deposited using an ‘eCheck’ (basically an EFT draft established with a voided check copy.)
Question: Is there a policy document that shows my coverage?
Answer: Yes, your contract upon issuance will show the final determined offer of benefits. (Yes, that comes *AFTER* you have already paid your premiums, generally, if you paid with application to secure prioritized underwriting… however, remember, all policies always come with a 30 day free cancellation or transfer period, so you are not at risk of being trapped by the insurance company.)
Question: Is there a document that shows the clause about 10% return of premium per year?
Answer: Yes, in both the initial application disclosures, and the final contract, there will be a “free withdrawal” clause, or page… generally with a grid showing the annually declining surrender charges for withdrawing funds faster than the 10% annual free allowance.
Question: If I don’t take 10% each year, but wait until year 5, can I draw 50% without penalty?
Answer: No, on most cash value annuity and insurance products the free withdrawal allowance resets each anniversary. It generally does not accumulate as an increasing annual free withdrawal allowance.
Question; How do I know what my LTC coverage amount is, annual and daily limit, condition to qualify (2 or 3 daily activity out of 5?)
Answer: These terms are definitely spelled out in both the initial disclosures, and the final offered contract.
