Legacy Master® Whole Life Insurance: Maximizing Your Financial Future

With Legacy Master Whole Life Insurance, you make one lump sum payment, referred to as a single premium, then simply let your cash value grow. This policy combines tax-deferred living benefits with the income tax-free death benefit of a life insurance policy. It helps you maximize the inheritance you leave as your legacy while doing so in a tax efficient way. If you don't need income from current assets, consider a Legacy Master Single Premium Whole Life Insurance policy as part of your wealth transfer strategy.

Product Details

With Legacy Master, you make one premium payment then simply let your cash value grow. You reap tax-deferred living benefits with the income tax-free death benefit of a life insurance policy. The death benefit is guaranteed for the life of the insured unless canceled by cash surrender or exhausted by loan.

Legacy Master allows flexibility for you to get the most value out of your assets. If an emergency arises, you are able to access the policy's cash value. Or you can let the cash value grow, income tax deferred, maximizing the legacy you leave.

For example, Ed purchases a $100,000 Legacy Master policy with a benefit of $176,032. Because life insurance passes income tax-free, Ed's beneficiary will receive $76,032 more than if Ed were to die today, leaving him the $100,000 taxable asset.
