What If Congress Does Away With the Advantages of An IUL?

By October 5, 2020 [PODCAST]

Doug Andrew answers a wide variety of questions each week on his 3 Dimensional Wealth YouTube channel. This week, the question he tackles has to do with maximum-funded IULs and what Congress or the IRS may have in store for them.

As Doug explains, the IUL is a savings vehicle that allows you to accumulate your money tax-free, to access your money tax-free and which, ultimately, increases in value and transfers to your heirs tax-free upon your passing. He describes this vehicle as the LASER fund which means liquid assets safely earning a predictable rate of return.

A properly structured, maximum-funded IUL is a sacred cow in the Internal Revenue Code under sections 72E, 7702 and 101A. Often, as Doug is teaching people about this incredible vehicle, the question arises: What if Congress or the IRS does away with the tax-free advantages of an IUL?
