Participating life insurance, or Participating Whole Life insurance is essentially a whole life policy with the added benefit of an investment in the form of dividends. Policyholder dividends allow you to share in the profitability of the insurance company, which you can use to reduce premiums, purchase more coverage, or accumulate as additional cash value.
Participating insurance is a good life insurance option for those who want permanent coverage with a tax-deferred investment, but prefer to leave the responsibility of managing those investments to the experts.
Even if estate planning isn’t your central focus, Participating Life insurance is a practical option, as it increases your coverage, thus enabling you to leave more to your family or keep pace with ever-growing inflation.
The following are some of the ways you and your family could benefit from a participating life insurance policy:
If you’re looking for permanent coverage, and are able to commit to a larger amount of premium for a reduced period of time, e.g., prepaying the insurance in a 8-20 year period, a Participating Life insurance policy may be a good fit for you. Other good candidates for a Participating policy are those looking to invest corporately held money in a tax deferred investment vehicle.
