The Impact Partnership announced today a new partnership with The Lafayette Life Insurance Company to launch Legacy Span, a legacy planning concept that involves the purchase of a deferred fixed indexed annuity and whole life insurance policy.

Legacy Span is a concept that features a deferred indexed annuity with tax-deferred growth, beneficiary protection, and protection from market downturns. The annuity value is used to pay, over time, the premiums of a whole life insurance policy. The life policy offers an income tax-free death benefit and tax-deferred cash value growth. Clients also have protection of principal, a guaranteed legacy for beneficiaries, and the creation of a tax advantage inheritance from qualified funds.

"A planning concept that offers a legacy for families through an annuity and a life insurance policy is revolutionary for clients and the financial industry," said Stephen Odom, CEO of The Impact Partnership. "We are thrilled and grateful to offer this concept with a partner that has the ingenuity and reputation of Lafayette Life. Their commitment to the growing retirement marketplace is exceptional."

“Lafayette Life is committed to supporting our policyowners and the producers who sell our products by offering innovative products and marketing concepts,” said John H. Bultema III, Lafayette Life president and chief executive officer. “Our collaboration with The Impact Partnership to offer Legacy Span is a great example of our mission to be a financially sound, quality-driven, growth-oriented company dedicated to helping our producers meet our customers’ needs through a variety of financial products, services and solutions. Legacy Span uses a single and seamless illustration and application process for both products, making the process easy and fast for our producers and customers.”
