As your life circumstances change, so do your financial obligations. As you enter retirement, if you’ve paid off your debts, prepaid for funeral expenses and achieved all of your wealth goals – congratulations! So, what could you do with your life insurance policy if it is no longer needed?
You could certainly choose to cancel your policy, but what if there was a more meaningful option? As the owner of a permanent life insurance policy, you can donate your insurance policy proceeds to a charity of your choice. You still enrich your estate through the tax benefits of charitable giving AND can have a significant impact on a charity’s ability to achieve its goals.
Watch this video and learn more about your options as well as the caveats involved in donating your insurance policy to charity.
