John and Mary had the benefit of John’s great pension from his former employer and had saved and accumulated well inside their qualified retirement plans. Their need for annual income was very small, thanks to the combined benefits of John’s pension and both of their respective social security benefits. They chose to guarantee a family legacy by purchasing a survivorship life insurance policy that would provide a 100% income tax free inheritance to their children and grandchildren. They used annual income they didn’t need for themselves, from their investments, to fund this new policy. With this new guaranteed “legacy” asset in place, they changed their plan and began taking advantage of the tax law provision at age 70 that permits them to give up to $100,000 annually directly to charity. They could qualify this as their IRS required minimum distribution. Additionally, they changed the beneficiaries on their retirement accounts to 50% to Haven of Rest and 50% to their other favorite charity. This zeroed out all income tax on these retirement assets after their death. In the end, the family received an increased after-tax inheritance and Haven of Rest and another excellent charitable organization were blessed beyond measure by the sizeable gifts this average family took the time and initiative to setup with the help of their financial professionals.
