What is Estate Planning through Split Dollar Life Insurance?

Split Dollar Agreements, is a highly effective estate planning technique for high net worth individuals. It is essentially a strategy in which an individual can utilize a series of separate annual loans in order to make premium payments for his or her life insurance policies. This arrangement is also common for employers who provide life insurance for highly compensated employees as a supplemental benefit.

Split dollar life insurance is especially useful for those individuals who would like to have their life insurance policies owned in an irrevocable trust, yet do not have the necessary annual exclusion amount available to pay the full premium amount.
