10 Where Do I Start? “What options do I have to save for retirement and how do they compare with each other?” 10 of 18

11 A Number of Ways to Save for Retirement 11 of 18 Annual Limits on Contributions Pre-Tax Contributions Tax-Deferred Accumulation Tax-Preferred Distribution Income Tax-Free Distributions at Death Traditional Individual Retirement Account (IRA) Yes No Roth IRAYesNoYesYes 1 Yes 2 Qualified PlanYes No Certificate of Deposit (CD) 3 No Mutual Fund 4 No Municipal Bond Fund 5 No Yes No Individual Owned Deferred Annuity No YesNo 6 No Life InsuranceNo 7 NoYesYes 8 Yes 9 1 A Roth IRA allows you to make contributions with after-tax money without current income tax deductions. You pay taxes now and may enjoy tax-free income later, provided you hold the Roth IRA for at least five years and don’t take distributions before reaching age 59½. If you do not meet the five years and attaining age 59½ requirements and need to take a distribution, you may owe income tax on earnings, and a 10% federal tax penalty may apply to the earnings and prior converted amounts. Similar to the traditional IRA, there are exceptions to the 10% federal tax penalty for withdrawals and the 59½ age requirement, such as first-time home purchase, death, disability, certain qualifying medical expenses, health insurance premiums, or higher-education expenses. 2 A distribution from a Roth IRA generally is income tax-free if (a) it meets all the requirements for a qualified distribution (which include a 5-year waiting period and one of several additional requirements, one being that the distribution is made to a beneficiary on or after the death of the individual), or (b) it is a nonqualified distribution to the extent of after tax distributions (basis). 3 A Certificate of Deposit (CD) is FDIC insured. 4 Mutual funds may be subject to income tax and/or capital gains taxation. Consult your tax advisor for more information. 5 Generally, interest paid on municipal bonds is tax-free, but not all municipal bonds are exempt from federal and/or state income tax. Some bonds may be subject to capital gains tax at sale. Consult your tax advisor for more information. 6 Upon distribution, when a contract annuitizes, a portion of principal is included in the annuity payout. The principal portion is not subject to tax. 7 There is not a specific limit on dollars allocated to purchase life insurance; however, there are maximum premium limits determined by a specified policy face amount. A policy will qualify as life insurance if it meets the requirements of IRC Sec. 7702, which includes limits on the amount of premium that may be paid into a specific face amount and still qualify as life insurance. 8 Tax-free income assumes, among other things: (1) withdrawals do not exceed tax basis (generally, premiums paid less prior withdrawals); (2) policy remains in force until death; (3) withdrawals taken during the first 15 policy years do not occur at the time of, or during the two years prior to, any reduction in benefits; and (4) the policy does not become a modified endowment contract. See IRC Sections 7702(f)(7)(B), 7702A. Any policy withdrawals, loans and loan interest will reduce policy values and may reduce benefits. 9 For federal income tax purposes, life insurance death benefits generally pay income tax-free to beneficiaries pursuant to IRC Section 101(a)(1). In certain situations, however, life insurance death benefits may be partially or wholly taxable. Situations include, but are not limited to: the transfer of a life insurance policy for valuable consideration unless the transfer qualifies for an exception under IRC Section 101(a)(2) (i.e. the “transfer-for- value rule”); arrangements that lack an insurable interest based on state law; and an employer-owned policy unless the policy qualifies for an exception under IRC Section 101(j ).

16 A Few Things To Consider Life insurance death benefit proceeds will be included in the insured’s taxable estate* (unless additional planning is completed). Policy may require additional premiums to meet supplemental retirement income needs. Premium payments are made with the policyholder’s after-tax dollars. * From January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2012, the federal estate tax exemption amount is $5,120,000 ; the maximum estate tax rate is 35%; and, the rules regarding step-up in basis for property transferred at death are reinstated.
