Many American parents invest money in State 529 College Savings Plans for their children because they are unaware of an alternative College Saving Plan that will give them a risk free better return, as well as life insurance, emergency medical insurance, no restriction on withdrawal and tax-free retirement all while being 100 percent safe from market declines and rescission, compared to the State 529 Plan.
Many people believe that life insurance is only for death benefits when they hear about it. There is not much knowledge about Indexed Universal Life (IUL) insurance policies, which include a cash accumulation component, similar to Indexed Annuities, but are entirely tax-free. Literally, you can call it an IUL investment plan. It is getting very popular and many people believe that it will be the next 401(k) retirement and college saving plan.
In “Forbes”, Dr. Edward Burns Jr wrote an article: “Why IUL Investment Might Be New 401(k)?” https://www.forbes.com/sites/forbesbusinessdevelopmentcouncil/2022/10/03/why-indexed-universal-life-insurance-might-be-new-401k/?sh=1a585a5b60c9).
