We all know that the earlier that you start saving for retirement, the easier it is. For example, what if you had started saving for retirement when you were just kid? Well, it’s too late for you to start doing that because you can’t go back in time. Moreover, where would you get the money to save for retirement anyway… you were just a kid? That being said, it’s not too late for your children or grandchildren. You would be amazed at what happens when you put a small amount of money into a cash value life insurance on a young child. I’m talking children as young as one year old up to late teens or early 20s. Parents or grandparents who have the foresight to start a plan like this are giving their kids and grandkids a wonderful gift. Imagine, never having to worry about having enough money for retirement. It is also a great tool to teach children valuable lessons about the importance of saving.
Later in life when the child grows up, and his or her friends are worried about retirement, the child with the savings plan will be thinking wow…thanks mom and dad, or thanks grandma and grandpa. To make it even better, the retirement money would be tax-free. Whenever I put together one of these plans for someone’s children or grandchildren, the person starting the plan always says that they wish that someone had done this for them.
This same plan can also be used to save for college and it has none of the disadvantages of a 529 plan. I’ll talk more about 529 plans verses using a life insurance policy next week.
