*Considerations for using a LIRP.

Life insurance retirement plans (LIRPs) have special qualification requirements and may not be suitable or available to all investors.  LIRP retirement plans are long term strategies, and even though they can provide access to tax-free cash value via policy loans, if they are cancelled prematurely generally in the first 10 years, you can potentially incur an expensive surrender penalty.  The IUL (Indexed Universal Life) policies referenced in this article have flexible premiums requirements unlike some other cash value life insurance policies.  The LIRP generally invests in an equity index like the S&P 500, with a floor of zero (If the market loses value, {i.e., -22%} you earn zero for that year) and with a cap in the ranges of 8%-9.5% as an example).  If you have a cap of 9% and the S&P 500 earns 12% for the year you will only earn the cap of 9%.  Potentially the LIRP could experience lower investment returns than traditional retirement plans like IRAs, and 401K that invest in the markets without a cap.  The LIRP could also protect your plan value with the 0% floor in down markets.  If you borrow from the policy the insurance company will charge an interest rate (i.e., 4%) but will leave your investments fully invested with a potential average long term historically return of around 6%.  Potentially allowing you to enjoy the benefit of arbitrage of about 2%  (6%-4%) on the amounts you have borrowed for income purposes.  The premiums (investment amounts) for LIRPs are generally much higher than normal life insurance policies as you are attempting to overfund the life insurance policy to the maximum extent allowed by the IRS.  This enables you to build cash value in the policy, and shelter that cash value from future income taxation.  Allowing you to take tax-free income during your retirement and leave a tax-free death benefit to your loved ones when you die.
