Some Things You Should Know
  • This presentation was not intended by the author to be used, by anybody for the purpose of avoiding any penalties that may be imposed on you pursuant to the Internal Revenue Code. The information contained herein was prepared to support the promotion, marketing and/or sale of life insurance contracts, annuity contracts and/or other products and services provided by Nationwide Life Insurance Company.
  • Federal tax laws are complex and subject to change. Neither the company nor its representatives give legal or tax advice. Please talk with your attorney or tax advisor for answers to your specific questions.
  • Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal
  • Keep in mind that as an acceleration of the death benefit, the LTC rider payout will reduce both the death benefit and cash surrender values. Care should be taken to make sure that your clients' life insurance needs continue to be met even if the rider pays out in full. There is no guarantee that the rider will cover the entire cost for all of the insured's long-term care as these vary with the needs of each insured.

some things you should know1
Some Things You Should Know
  • When evaluating the purchase of a variable annuity, your clients should be aware that variable annuities are long-term investment vehicles designed for retirement purposes and will fluctuate in value; annuities have limitations; and investing involves market risk, including possible loss of principal.
  • This information assumes that the life insurance is not a modified endowment contract, or MEC. As long as the contract meets the non-MEC definitions of IRC Section 7702A, most distributions are taxed on a first-in/first-out basis. Surrender charges may apply to partial surrenders. Loans and partial surrenders from a MEC will generally be taxable, and if taken prior to age 59 ½, may be subject to a 10% tax penalty. Loans and partial surrenders will reduce the cash value and the death benefits payable to your beneficiaries, and withdrawals above the available free amount will incur surrender charges. If your contract were to lapse with a loan outstanding, the loan amount in excess of basis will be treated as a distribution and all or a portion will be subject to income tax.
  • The underlying investment options to a variable annuity or life insurance product are not publicly traded mutual funds and are not available directly for purchase by the general public. They are only available through variable annuity/variable life insurance policies issued by life insurance companies.

some things you should know2
Some Things You Should Know
  • As your clients’ personal situations change (i.e., marriage, birth of a child or job promotion), so will their life insurance needs. Care should be taken to ensure these strategies and products are suitable for long-term life insurance needs. You should weigh your clients’ objectives, time horizon and risk tolerance as well as any associated costs before investing. Also, be aware that market volatility can lead to the possibility of the need for additional premium in the policy. Variable life insurance has fees and charges associated with it that include costs of insurance that vary with such characteristics of the insured as gender, health and age, underlying fund charges and expenses, and additional charges for riders that customize a policy to fit your clients’ individual needs.
  • Not all Nationwide products and services are suitable for all clients or situations. There may be products, issued by other companies, which better suit your clients’ goals. Be sure to consider your clients’ objectives, their need for cash flow and liquidity, and overall risk tolerance when using any strategy.
  • This information was developed to promote and support products and services offered by Nationwide. It should not be taken as tax advice. It was not written or meant to be used by any taxpayer to avoid tax penalties, and it cannot be used by any taxpayer for that purpose.
  • Life insurance and annuities are issued by Nationwide Life Insurance Company or Nationwide Life and Annuity Insurance Company, Columbus, Ohio, member of Nationwide Financial®. The general distributor for variable insurance products is Nationwide Investment Services Corporation, member FINRA. In Michigan only: Nationwide Investment Svcs. Corporation.

An alternative solution is Nationwide’s Long-term Care rider:

  • LTC benefit paid tax free as an accelerated death benefit
  • Death benefit provides pool of money
    • Someone receives money as LTC or death benefit
  • Cash value
  • Some contracts offer death benefit and premium guarantees for life of insured including LTC rider
  • LTC benefit reduces death benefit dollar for dollar
    • LTC rider amount may be dialed down to preserve some needed death benefit (not available in NY, KY or Virgin Islands)

  • LTC benefit is lesser of:
    • 2% per month of death benefit/rider amount OR
    • Daily per diem rate established by HIPAA times days in the month
      • 2012 per diem rate = $310/day
  • Example:
    • 500K LTC rider x 2% = $10,000 per month OR
    • The HIPAA per diem of $310/day x 30 days in a month = $9,300 per month
    • In this case, client would receive $9,300/month
    • Benefit lasts at least 4 years & 2 months*

Note: the 2012 per diem amount allowed by Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is $310 per day. Maximum annual amount for 2012 is $113,590

    • Collateral
    • Interest Rate
    • Loan is repaid in full
      • Interest taxable if repaid after death

what does self insuring ltc mean to an affluent client
What does self insuring LTC mean to an affluent client?

Client sets aside $1,000,000 to cover any LTC Costs. Asset is liquid and in the estate.

50% chance of using some or

all of asset for LTC costs1

Little or no amount from this asset would be estate taxed since it was liquidated to pay LTC costs

50% chance of not needing

this asset for LTC costs

$1,000,000

The untouched $1 million would be estate taxed. At 2012 rates, this could mean a tax rate of as much as 35% ($350,000)

Example
  • Our client, Jane, has a $5 million tax liability
    • Assume product can dial down LTC rider
    • Add a $1 million LTC rider
  • When no dial down possible, use two policies
    • $4 million policy with no LTC rider
    • $1 million policy with a LTC rider
  • Assuming the following loan provisions
    • Collateral is the vacation home
    • Interest rate is 7%
    • Loan paid back just days before death

Charitable Giving
  • Why does client usually want to add LTC rider to a policy intended for charitable giving?
    • Tax deduction
    • Leave money to charity – AND
    • Have access to LTC benefits!
  • Can’t have it all
    • Gift should be given with full intent of charity receiving
  • Why would an LTC rider make sense?
    • LTC benefit paid earlier than mortality
    • Provides cash with more spending power
    • Indemnifying the key contributor
      • Example - Life expectancy 83, LTC needed at 75
      • DB flows to charity 8 years early- enhances spend-ability
