3 An effective wealth planning program must address the following core subject: Real wealth involves sustainable Cash Flow, and most people are more concerned with running out of money than any other financial issue. Focus of This Presentation

4 An effective wealth planning program must: Focus of This Presentation A.Include the financial impact of a client’s required after tax Cash Flow in the analysis (including a factor for inflation); B.Calculate the most efficient distribution from liquid assets to produce the required Cash Flow; C.Convert illiquid assets to liquid assets at any time a shortfall of required Cash Flow exists; D.Calculate Net Worth using realistic asset-by-asset client assumptions;

5 An effective wealth planning program must also: Focus of This Presentation E.Provide a client-approved comfort zone of residual Net Worth in all years; F.Illustrate revisions to the assets to improve Cash Flow and maximize Net Worth; G.Integrate life insurance solutions and illustrate comparisons with no life insurance; H.Maximize Wealth to Heirs coordinated with the most efficient pre-death Net Worth;

6 An effective wealth planning program must also: Focus of This Presentation I.Illustrate varying levels of death taxes due to the unstable nature of federal taxes; J.Analyze all planning variations in “do-it vs. don’t-do- it” graphical comparisons; K.Provide year-by-year numerical backup for every aspect of the analysis so that professional advisers can easily audit any aspect of it.

14 Their current estate is valued at close to $5.7 million. They are both retired. Their current financial plan has been designed to provide them with $100,000 a year in after tax retirement cash flow -- increasing by 3% a year as an inflation offset. Richard and Elaine Masters are ages 65 and with two grown children. Case Study #1

15 Richard and Elaine are considering gifting $25,000 a year in trust to each of their two children (total $50,000). Case Study #1 However, they are concerned about the impact of such a gift on their retirement income and residual net worth, i.e., their “comfort zone” of retained assets. They also want to determine what would be the most effective use of the gift – an equity account or life insurance.

16 A summary of the strategies in Case Study #1: Case Study #1 Strategy 1. Richard and Elaine’s current plan – this does not take into account the new gifts to the trust on behalf of their children. Strategy 2. The new plan with gifts to the trust invested in a hypothetical equity account (6.00% growth and 2.00% dividend). Strategy 3. The new plan with gifts to the trust invested in a survivor life insurance policy. Note: Each analysis includes a provision for $100,000 of increasing annual after tax cash flow for Richard and Elaine’s retirement.

21 Case Study #1 Conclusion Since the source of the funding for the $50,000 annual gift is their capital not their income, Richard and Elaine’s retirement income cash flow is unaffected by the transaction. Consequently, it is likely that they will consider the long- range decrease in net worth well worth the significant increase in wealth to heirs -- and the life insurance policy appears to be the preferred funding instrument. Main Menu Continue to Case Study #2

22 Case Study #2 illustrates a wealth preservation strategy that includes a charitable component. Case Study #2

23 Their current estate is valued at close to $4.3 million. They plan to retire in five years. Their current financial plan has been designed to provide them with $150,000 a year in after tax retirement cash flow -- increasing by 3% a year as an inflation offset. Ken and Jennifer Hudson are in their mid-fifties with three grown children. Case Study #2

24 IRS There are three possible beneficiaries of an estate: With proper planning, you get to pick two! Family Charity

25 IRS If given the choice... Family Charity With proper planning, you get to pick two!

26 Let’s examine this in context... Family IRS Most people decide this way... Charity

27 Retirement Plan (IRA) ($500,000) Deferred annuity ($500,000) Undeveloped land ($500,000) All the family assets ($4.275 million) We will focus on four planning strategies for Ken and Jennifer regarding the following assets: Each technique works because the social capital portion of the asset classification will go to a favorite Charity or Family Foundation at death, not the IRS. Case Study #2 (Asset Analysis) Note: Each analysis includes a provision for $150,000 of increasing annual after tax cash flow for Ken and Jennifer’s retirement.

44 * If enacted, the Charitable Remainder Trust is a “done deal”. All money to charity from the retirement plan, annuity, and zero estate tax strategies is via a revocable charitable beneficiary designation or a testamentary bequest.* Flexibility Therefore, these assets remain an active part of Net Worth until death -- and are freely available to Ken and Jennifer during their lifetimes. Should Ken and Jennifer wish to change their minds, they may do so at any time.

46 Case Study #3 What About a Stretch-Out IRA? Which hand do you want to play? Stretch-Out IRACharitable IRA Good as the stretch-out approach is, it is second best to the charitable strategy. Very few people know this -- but those who do have a very significant planning edge.

47 Using Ken Hudson’s $500,000 IRA as an example, let’s review a wealth preservation analysis that compares a stretch-out IRA to a charitable IRA. Case Study #3 What About a Stretch-Out IRA?

48 Impact on Net Worth Source: Wealthy and Wise  by InsMark Strategy 1: Social Capital to IRS -- no add’l life insurance for heirs Strategy 2: Stretch-Out IRA -- $2.0 million life insurance for heirs Strategy 3: Charitable IRA -- $3.7 million life insurance for heirs

50 Legacy to a Favorite Charity or Family Foundation Source: Wealthy and Wise  by InsMark Strategy 2: Charitable IRA -- $3.7 million life insurance for heirs Strategy 1: Social Capital to IRS -- no add’l life insurance for heirs Strategy 2: Stretch-Out IRA -- $2.0 million life insurance for heirs

51 The major difference between charitable and stretch-out is the quality of the inherited capital.

52 * Source: Wealthy and Wise  by InsMark Age 85/80 *Stretch-Out IRA: $3.7 million of the Wealth to Heirs is tax deferred capital on which income tax is still due. Charitable IRA: All the Wealth to Heirs is capital.

53 Case Study #3 Conclusion The edge clearly goes to the charitable IRA approach (backed up by the life insurance). Main Menu Continue to Case Study #4

54 èThey have a current Net Worth of $3.5 million and question whether it is better to self-insure this risk – should it occur. èJohn and Fran Sandor are ages 65 and 60. èThe Sandors’ financial adviser has recommended they acquire a Long-Term Care policy. Case Study #4 Long-Term Care – Insure or Self-Insure

55 Should the Sandors purchase the Long-Term Care policy or is their Net Worth sufficient to self-insure the potential risk? Let’s examine the mathematics... Case Study #4 Long-Term Care – Insure or Self-Insure

56 Assume a claim occurs in 8 years that lasts for 6 years. Analysis Assume the total daily benefits for the claim on a monthly basis will be $6,000 in today’s dollars -- and medical inflation averages 5% a year. Assume the annual premium for a Long-Term Care policy covering both John and Fran is $8, reducing to $4,300 during the claim period. Assume an inflation rider increases total monthly benefits by 5% (compounded) a year. Assume retirement cash flow needs decline by 25% during the claim period.

57 An evaluation of alternatives follows... Retirement cash flow must be unaffected by the transaction. A Cash Flow Neutral Analysis This means the source of the Long-Term Care claims or premiums must be John and Fran’s asset base, not a reduction in their spendable income.

59 Wealth to Heirs Analysis Source: Wealthy and Wise © by InsMark

60 Given the assumptions, John and Fran should seriously consider acquiring the Long-Term Care policy as it is not worth assuming the risk inherent in self-insuring. Case Study #4 Conclusion #1

61 Is there a way to improve further the wealth transferred to heirs? Let’s include a Wealth Replacement Trust funded with $2,500,000 of survivorship life insurance ($25,000 annual premium). Case Study #4 Query

62 èStrategy 1: Status Quo (no Long-Term Care claims or premiums) èStrategy 3: Insure LTC èStrategy 4: Insure LTC + $2,500,000 life insurance in a Wealth Replacement Trust The self-insured approach (Strategy 2) is not a desirable option, so our comparison will evaluate the following three alternatives:

63 Strategy 4 produces some reduction in Net Worth. As you can see on the next screen, the improved results to heirs make Strategy 4 a highly desirable option. Net Worth Analysis Source: Wealthy and Wise © by InsMark

64 Strategy 4 produces superior results in Wealth to Heirs. Wealth to Heirs Source: Wealthy and Wise © by InsMark

65 Given the assumptions, John and Fran should seriously consider acquiring the both the Long-Term Care policy and the Wealth Replacement Trust funded with life insurance. Case Study #4 Conclusion #2 Main Menu Continue to Funding Comments

66 All the graphics for Net Worth and Wealth to Heirs and/or Charity reflect assets after the funding has been accounted for, and spendable cash flow for retirement income is calculated to be the same whether or not the participants take advantage of any of the protection strategies suggested. One of the conditions for each of the evaluations in this presentation requires that spendable cash flow for planned retirement income should be unaffected by the transactions, and this has been confirmed during each step of each analysis.
