Unwinding Life Insurance Transactions and Keeping a Policy: Dealing With ILITs, Split Dollar and Buyout Agreements When the Business Owns the Policy

Date: Thursday, December 5, 2019
Time: 12:00pm - 1:30pm
Location: Kenwood Country Club | 5601 River Road, Bethesda, MD 20816
Speaker: Todd Steinberg, Esq. | Loeb & Loeb, LLP

As we enter the holiday season, it’s a perfect time to think about those in need. EPCMOCO is holding a canned food drive at its December 5th to benefit Bethesda Cares, a local organization that feeds and helps the homeless with a goal of finding them permanent housing.

Per the Bethesda Care website:
“Bethesda Cares gratefully accept food donations of both perishable and nonperishable items.  We can use baked goods and packaged snack foods at our Drop-In Center; we’ll incorporate non-perishable foods into meals at our meal daily programs.  We always appreciate fresh fruit to ensure that clients receive well-balanced, nutritious meals. Because many homeless clients don’t have ready access to fresh water, we welcome bottled water, year-round.  And finally, for our recently housed clients we welcome easy-to-make foods like: boxed pasta, canned soups, boxed macaroni & cheese, minute rice, canned tuna and canned Vienna sausages, packaged snacks like granola bars, instant oatmeal packets, etc.  Please do not bring any partially-consumed items, and kindly check the expiration dates on anything you donate.”

We will have donation boxes at the meeting.  Thank you in advance for helping us to make a difference in our community!

About the Program
This presentation will provide insights into current and likely future planning opportunities with life insurance. We will discuss why insurance is an important asset in a client's overall portfolio/business/balance sheet. We will review how to properly analyze and implement (or refine) certain wealth transfer strategies that utilize (or already own) insurance. If the prior structure/transaction or trust is no longer working, what are the planning hurdles and steps that must be considered and implemented? We will conclude with a discussion about how the future in insurance solutions is not bleak, but rather exciting and challenging.
