IUL as a tool

Indexed Universal Life As A Tool To Solve The Military Retirement Problem

Today, we want to dive into a topic that is near and dear to our hearts: using Indexed Universal Life (IUL) insurance as a solution to the military retirement problem. In many of our videos, we have discussed the Survivor Benefit Plan (SBP) alternative as an introduction to the use of this powerful tool. While the SBP has its merits, we believe that IUL offers a unique opportunity for service members to achieve a return on investment regardless of the outcome.

Educating on Retirement Options

When evaluating retirement options, it is essential to educate yourself about both the government and private sector plans. The SBP, part of the public plan, provides a death benefit at a certain cost. However, we have found that, in most cases, the private sector solution proves to be more beneficial in various ways. Our goal is to evaluate these options and guide transitioning service members toward the one that best suits their needs.

Flexibility and Benefits of IUL

One of the primary advantages of the IUL is the flexibility it provides. With the SBP, the benefits are typically only accessible after passing away. However, with an IUL, you can ensure that your spouse benefits not just upon your demise but also during your lifetime. Imagine having the ability to create liquidity, build equity, and protect your family while you’re still alive. An IUL allows you to pass along assets to your family in case of an unfortunate event while also providing financial security and peace of mind during your lifetime.

Comparing SBP and IUL

Another aspect to consider is the pension maximization provided by the SBP. If your spouse outlives you, they will receive 55% of your pension, which is taxable income. In contrast, an IUL gives you control over costs and ensures that there is an option for recouping some of these expenses. Rather than having only one outcome with the SBP, an IUL lets you create an account from which you can draw down as needed.

In conclusion, the IUL is a powerful tool for solving the military retirement problem. Its flexibility, optionality, and ability to provide liquidity and protection during your lifetime make it an attractive choice. While the SBP has its merits, the private sector offers more advantageous solutions for most service members. We believe in educating transitioning service members about the options available to them and helping them determine the best path forward.
