A Split Funded Defined Benefit plan was recommended as a powerful retirement planning strategy offering great income tax and asset protection benefits. This is a tax-qualified retirement plan established by a company where employer contributions are split between a whole life insurance policy and traditional investments.

BELOW IS A BRIEF OVERVIEW:

• Because of the inclusion of life insurance, this plan resulted in the largest possible annual pre-tax contribution for the client. The life insurance also provides protection upon the client’s death. Its death benefit, less the cash surrender value of the policy, may be paid to the beneficiaries’ income tax-free.

• As a qualified plan, all employees must be considered for inclusion. A Profit Share / 401k Plan ensures compliance. Due to the age and income disparity between the owner and employees, we were able to have a large portion of the total contribution go to the owner.

It’s important to stress the wealth management advisor does not replace any trusted advisors. Rather, they supplement the advisors’ expertise to meet the executive’s total financial needs by implementing a holistic wealth plan.
