Whole Life insurance is intended to provide death benefit protection for an individual’s entire life. Any loans or withdrawals reduce the policy’s death benefits and cash values. Some whole life polices do not have cash values in the first two years of the policy. Whole life insurance should be considered for its long-term value. Policy benefits are reduced by any outstanding loan or loan interest and/or withdrawals. Dividends, if any, are affected by policy loans and loan interest. Withdrawals above the cost basis may result in taxable ordinary income. If the policy lapses, or is surrendered, any outstanding loans considered gain in the policy may be subject to ordinary income taxes. If the policy is a Modified Endowment Contract (MEC), loans are treated like withdrawals, but as gain first, subject to ordinary income taxes. If the policy owner is under 59 ½, any taxable withdrawal may also be subject to a 10% federal tax penalty.
