Life Insurance and Taxes In Retirement
Although life insurance isn’t typically thought of as a retirement income source, it can be. Certain retirement vehicles are typically subject to tax. Additionally, withdrawing funds from these vehicles is usually subject to taxes. However, IULs are not taxed in the same way as other life insurance policies. IULs do not actually invest in the stock market, though they can be linked to an index. Your money, therefore, is not at risk. As a result, an IUL may provide tax-free retirement income. Each policy has its own terms and conditions. We can help you determine what options you have regarding taxes in retirement.
