Get The Best Of Both Worlds

Participating life insurance is a lifelong insurance protection for your family with the potential to grow your wealth tax-free.

What Is Participating Life Insurance?

It is lifelong coverage that pays your beneficiary a tax-free payment when you pass. Your policy is guaranteed to grow in cash value as long as you pay your premiums. Cash value is the value of the insurance policy that you can access as cash.

Your payments are pooled in a separate account called the participating account with other policyholders. The funds are professionally managed and may provide you with a dividend.

How Does Participating Life Insurance Work?

With participating life insurance you pay your premiums and they go into an account called the “participating account,” which is professionally managed. Your money can grow in cash value and you can use that money to pay for expenses, taxes, insurance claims, etc. You may also receive a dividend as cash, which can be used to buy more insurance or pay for your existing coverage. When you pass, your beneficiary will receive a tax-free payment.
