Navigating Split-Dollar Life Insurance Plan Administration

Written by: Andesa Services

What are Split-Dollar Life Insurance Plans?

Split-dollar life insurance plans are sophisticated life insurance arrangements where the cost and benefits of a policy are shared between two entities, such as an employer and an employee, or between two individuals in estate planning. These agreements detail the division of premium payments, cash value accumulation, and death benefit distribution. Split-dollar plans are versatile and designed to serve various purposes like executive compensation or tax-efficient estate planning, depending on the premium payment structure, cash value access methods, and death benefit allocation.

The Complexities of Split-Dollar Plan Administration

The administration of split-dollar plans demands a deep understanding of financial and regulatory nuances. Given their complexity and high financial stakes, these plans necessitate precise record-keeping and management. Each plan’s distinct terms, covering premium payments, cash value utilization, and death benefit dispersal, require an administrative platform capable of effectively managing this diversity and intricacy.
