IPB 067: Should You Use Life Insurance to Diversify Your Retirement Income?

How could life insurance fit into your overall retirement income plan? That's what episode 67 is all about. For most people going forward, relying on pensions to form a stable foundation for their retirement will not be an option.

That means that most will be faced with two income sources:

  1. Social Security
  2. Income generated from investment portfolio (stocks, bonds, mutual funds, ETFs, real estate etc.)

Some have suggested that if you just follow the 4% rule everything will work out fine. We believe that's way oversimplified and fails to take into account the substantial risk posed by having significant drawdowns in your portfolio during the early years of your retirement.

Why not be a bit more selective in how you choose to take income and perhaps consider using cash value life insurance as a foundational component of the strategy?
