FINANCIAL CONCERN You understand the importance of saving for retirement. When you are allocating the maximum allowable contributions to qualified pensions, profit sharing plans, or 401(k) plans, and you want more, what can you do? You need ways to enhance retirement income, while protecting financial futures… yours and your loved ones. POSSIBLE SOLUTION Consider a Sun Life Financial Variable Universal Life (VUL) insurance policy for the opportunity to accumulate retirement funds, while offering death benefit protection for loved ones. STRATEGY
Client Purchases VUL Client purchases and retains ownership of a Sun Life Financial VUL policy with face amount and payments individually established. A 162 Bonus Plan may be an employer option to help fund the Supplemental Retirement Plan.

PLANNING

During Life Cash value can be accessed through withdrawals, surrenders, and loans. Properly structured, these distributions may be free of federal income taxes.1

Upon Death The federal income tax-free death benefit2 can help loved ones maintain their standard of living.

QUESTIONS FOR YOU 1. What are your greatest concerns about your retirement plan?

2. At what level are you contributing to a tax-qualified plan? 3. What have you done to ensure that the maximum amount of your wealth will pass to loved ones? Partial surrenders or loans will effect policy proceeds and account value and may be subject to income tax. Policy loans will incur interest. If the policy is classified as a Modified Endowment Contract under IRS rules, distributions are generally subject to income taxes and a federal tax penalty if made before age 59½. Taxes may be incurred if policy is allowed to lapse before maturity. 2 Policy death benefit will be received income tax-free provided there has not been a transfer for value; benefits may be received estate taxfree if the policy has been gifted to an Irrevocable Trust more than three years before the insured’s death.
