Maximizing Retirement Income with Whole Life Insurance – Dr. Wade Pfau
Want to get the most income later in life? Your success depends not on one product, but the coordination of financial tools and your entire personal financial system. Whether your focus is on acquiring cash-flowing assets or you have a more typical investment portfolio, whole life insurance and annuities can play a critical role. That’s why we’re talking with Dr. Wade Pfau, a widely-recognized expert on income strategies with whole life insurance.
So if you want to get the most income during retirement, have the greatest chance of not running out of money, leave the greatest legacy, and see why the higher premium of whole life is worth it over “buying term and investing the difference”, tune in now!
In this episode, you’ll find out:
- Why the typical approach to retirement planning leaves so many in scarcity with the possibility of running out of money.
- How an integrated strategy using life insurance products with an investment portfolio provides more income during retirement.
- 3 ways whole life insurance is more than an income replacement that’s no longer needed after retirement.
- Why a financial strategy that includes whole life outperforms “buying term and investing the difference.”
- How you can spend more during retirement and pass on a bigger legacy.
- How whole life insurance and annuities provide an “actuarial bond” environment to replace traditional bonds in the typical asset allocation. This divides the functions of growth and income into separate assets, and give you more growth and more income.
- Why life insurance that uses bonds is better than buying bonds directly.
- How to preserve your investment portfolio and minimize the sequence of return risk, giving you more income during later years.
