Single Premium Whole Life Insurance

Single Premium Whole Life (SPWL) provides many advantages not available elsewhere.

The purchase of an SPWL provides an excellent method for transferring wealth to a beneficiary on a tax-free basis. Growth of principal is further enhanced over time with annual dividends.

Pre-Need and Final Expense

The most assured event for any life is death. Many individuals prefer to relieve their families from the decisions regarding funeral and burial by making the arrangements while still living (pre-need). Single pay and multi-year pay plans help provide alternative solutions.
