West Side Breakfast - Insurance Planning in Today’s Marketplace - It is not your Grandfathers Buick! sponsored by Sequoia Financial Group
Join us for breakfast and networking at 8:00am and the program will begin at 8:20am.
About the Program
Insurance planning after the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act of 2017 provides ample opportunities for business owners and individuals. With unemployment at record low levels and the estate tax exemption at record high levels, where does insurance planning fit into to your client's plan? Business owners have many challenges; today one of them is attracting and retaining talent. The value of implementing meaningful Golden Handcuffs is more important than ever. Understanding the Supplemental Executive Retirement Planning (SERP) arena helps you help your business owner clients differentiate themselves from their competitors. Section 409A and Section 162 planning is an important tool for your business owners. Individuals facing a potential taxable estate can benefit from the opportunities utilizing the ILIT and the increased lifetime exemption. Additionally, clients that have used their annual gift exclusions can do additional planning with tools like Private Loan Regime Split Dollar. While most of our clients do not require estate tax planning many need tax strategies and long-term care solutions. In today's marketplace hybrid contracts allow for multiple insurance solutions to include long-term care.
