Program Overview

Contrary to reports of its demise in 2003, split dollar arrangements remain an extremely efficient way to pay for life insurance contracts. In today's low interest rate environment, loan regime split dollar arrangements can be used to efficiently transfer wealth or fund supplemental retirement income. The webinar will use case studies to show how to customize split dollar illustrations for wealth transfer, supplemental retirement and key employee retention. By using LifeComp® the employer will be using plan documents and administration that assure compliance with the split dollar regulations, Section 409A deferred compensation rules, and the restrictions imposed by Sarbanes-Oxley on loans to key executives. Accounting reports supply payroll, attorneys and/or CPAs all of the information they need to properly report the split dollar agreement for income and estate and gift tax purposes. LifeComp® is so unique it was awarded a US patent. During the webinar we will explain how LifeComp® can provide the solutions for your client's business or personal life insurance needs.
