You’re in the GROWTH financial stage. Educating yourself today will accelerate the pace at which you grow wealth. 

A Wealth Maximization Account offers optimum cash flow and liquidity. 

  • Access your money when you need it, for whatever you want (unlike an IRA, where you’re penalized for withdrawals before age 59 ½). 
  • Use your wealth for business purchases, college tuition for your kids, and real estate, while you continue to earn interest on the full value of your account. 
  • Ditch relying on banks and credit cards. 

Utilizing The Perpetual Wealth Strategy during the Growth stage sets you up for a  lifetime of financial success. 

If you answered mostly B:

You’re in the INCOME financial stage. Educating yourself today will help you create a secure retirement that will provide income for life and a legacy for the future.

A Wealth Maximization Account protects your hard-earned wealth with a variety of tax advantages. Because your account is a dividend-paying whole life insurance contract, you aren’t exposed to market risk or taxation imposed by the IRS.

  • Tax-free policy loans
  • Growth of cash value can be used tax free
  • Estate tax-free death benefit

You’re in the LEGACY financial stage. It’s not too late to set up long-term care expenses and ensure a legacy for your family that provides lasting value.
