Kai-Zen is a strategy that helps you maintain your current lifestyle with an index life insurance policy that provides death benefits in the event of a chronic illness, premature death, or to potentially supplement your retirement savings. Protecting your ability to earn is critical to insuring that you will be able to save for retirement. Due to limitations, traditional retirement plans are typically insufficient for high income earners. If you want the potential to maintain your lifestyle in retirement, you need a proactive strategy to that puts more money toward helping to protect your future without putting a drain on your current finances.
Kai-Zen is one of the ONLY strategies that uses leverage to help you acquire more of the insurance benefits you need to financially protect you and your family. Kai-Zen’s unique fusion of financing and life insurance offers you more death benefit and helps supplement retirement more than you could without leverage.
Kai-Zen Features and Benefits
Death Benefit Protection
A cash value life insurance policy with accelerated benefit riders can provide benefits in the case of:
- Death (Generally paid to beneficiaries income tax free)
- Chronic Illness (Assistance with daily living, bathing, eating, dressing, transferring, etc.)
- Terminal Illness (Illness where death is expected within 12-24 months. Term varies by state.)
Life insurance requires qualification through health and financial
Cash Value Accumulation
- Build your policy’s cash value based on the growth of a market index (Interest credited based on market index or a fixed rate)
- Cash value and indexed interest earned are never at risk to market loss (Due to declines in an index)
- Tax deferred growth potential
- Access to cash value (Policy loans and withdraws can be used to supplement retirement income or other financial needs)
The most unique and compelling aspect of the Kai-Zen strategy is that the executive’s contributions are leveraged 3:1.
How the Kai-Zen Strategy Works
A life insurance policy is jointly funded by the executive and bank financing. The bank financing provides approximately 60-75% of the total premiums to the policy.
Now executives can realize benefits far beyond what their annual contributions alone could afford them.
The Use of Leverage
The concept is not much different than using a bank mortgage to leverage assets to purchase a home. Money is borrowed to buy more house (or with Kai-Zen, more benefits) than one could purchase with assets on hand. The amount funded into the policy has the potential for market growth without the risk of market losses due to declines in an index and uses the policy’s cash value as the sole collateral for the loan.
During the first 5 years, the participant contributes their portion and the lender finances the additional premiums into the insurance policy.
After year 5, the participant’s obligation is projected to be complete and the lender makes the remaining premium payments.
During this time, the policy has the potential to accumulate more value and the lender’s note is projected to be satisfied approximately by the end of the 15th year.
Years 16 and beyond
Potential policy cash value accumulation is projected for distributions for lifestyle needs such as supplemental retirement income.
