       Make your Client’s Life Easier
     As an Attorney you provide valuable guidance for all your clients.

     If you sincerely believe that your clients would be better off by having
      an Irrevocable Funeral Trust …

     …Why should you send them to another
      person who will earn a commission
      for selling them an Irrevocable
      Funeral Trust?

     If you have a license to sell Insurance…

     …Why not sell the IFT directly to
      your clients and receive the
      commission(s) yourself?

A
           Most Senior Citizens #1 Concern…
       “…what happens if I enter a
            nursing home?”

     93% of all Senior Citizens are not insured
      with LTC or Nursing home insurance!

     “I am concerned that there will be enough
      money to provide for my funeral
      expenses, if I were to enter a nursing
      home!”

     1 out of every 3 seniors will eventually be
      confined in an assisted living facility,
      nursing home or long-term care facility

A
        From The Medicaid Handbook*

    LIFE INSURANCE: Exempt if face value of all policies is less
          than $1,500.00. If face values of all policies exceed
      $1,500.00, then they are collectively considered “Countable
                                Assets”.
                *Refer to your state’s Medicaid Handbook – Rules may vary from state to state.



         Term or group life insurance having no cash value
               is excluded from “countable assets”.



A
    The Answer to Final Expense Insurance Planning
     Life Insurance policies are not exempt from
      Medicaid if the death benefit or cash value, is over
      $1,500.00

     This is a serious flaw in their plan since many seniors
      are planning to use these policies to provide funding
      for their funerals
                                          Life Insurance Policy
         The $9,850 cash value
         would be a “countable
         asset” – Since the face
         amount is over $1,500          Death Benefit - $10,000
                                         Cash Value - $9,850

A
      Pre-need Funding With the Irrevocable Funeral Trust
     Husband and wife arrive in your office…
     Husband says; “We are not really concerned about pre-funding our
      funeral because we each have an old $10,000 paid up policy. This
      should be enough to pay final expenses.”
         The cash values are about the same as the death benefit*
     Attorney says; – “Since you don’t have long term care insurance and if
      you enter a nursing home and have to qualify for Medicaid…your life
      insurance policy will be considered a ‘countable asset’. ”


               Solution: “Let’s do a 1035 tax free exchange
                 from your old policies to an Irrevocable
               Funeral Trust final expense plan.” Policies protected

     * Warning: This exchange should only be done where the cash value is about the same
     as the death benefit. If the death benefit is substantially greater than the cash value you
A    may be subject to liability claims for recommending the 1035 Exchange
       Where does the Irrevocable Funeral Trust sale fit?

     For the husband and wife who would like to shelter $25,000.00
      with the Funeral Trust final expense plan

     In most states, IFTs can also be paid for the client’s children
      by the client… shielding even more assets from nursing homes
      and Medicaid



    “By planning now…we know if
    we enter a nursing home…
    these funds are guaranteed to
    be there when needed!”


A
          Crisis Planning – Single Person
     Client is confined in nursing home
     Assets are $14,000.00 in a checking account
     Client’s assets must be ‘spent down’ to no more than $2,000
      to be eligible for Medicaid

      Solution: Do a funeral trust with $12,500 death benefit. Now there
      is only $1,500 remaining that would make your client eligible
      immediately-without spending this money on the nursing home.


                                                You Just
                                               Saved Your
                                                  Client
                                                $12,500!!


A
                     4 Ways to fund the IFT
     Client writes a check for total amount

     Client cashes in US Savings Bonds – This is “Ready Cash”

     Manage a 1035 exchange* using an old insurance policy

     Take a 10% tax free withdrawal from an annuity

                              If your client is not able to sign
                            because of incapacity…the Power
                           Of Attorney can sign for them. Mail a
                               copy of POA with application.

          THE Irrevocable Funeral Trust
     Consolidates a “single premium”
      guaranteed issued life policy into an
      Irrevocable Funeral Trust!                A BETTER
                                                  IDEA!
     By writing a single premium life
      insurance policy - and assigning the
      ownership to an Irrevocable Funeral
      Trust –the entire amount is…

     …Shielded as a “non countable asset”
      before Medicaid eligibility (exempt)

     Irrevocable Trust documents provided by
      the issuing insurance company


A
             A True Burial Insurance Policy
       A contract whose terms preclude the use of its proceeds for anything
        other than payment of the insured’s burial expenses

       In most states, it must meet two specific criteria:
        1.   It is Irrevocable
        2.   It can only be used for funeral expenses

       The ownership of the life insurance policy must be irrevocably
        assigned by the policyholder to an “Irrevocable Funeral Trust”
        established by the insurance company

       The irrevocable funeral trust final expense plan is not a divestment

       The five year look-back rule does not apply

       The purchase of a burial insurance policy that meets the above
        conditions is not a divestment because the purchaser is presumed to
        receive fair market value
