How would you like to pay your mortgage off in half the time with the help of an Index Universal Life Insurance?
In an Index Universal Life insurance, your payments pay for Life Insurance and a Savings Account, where cash value accumulates based on how much money you contribute and how the index performs.

Using an IUL to Pay Off Your Mortgage
So, you just bought a house. Congratulations are in order. You got an awesome interest rate of 4.1% and if you make your regular monthly payments your house will be paid off in the next 360 months.
Everybody knows that if you make extra payments on your mortgage you will get to cut the time that you are paying off that mortgage.
Let me show you how you can use an IUL to pay off your mortgage a lot sooner that the 360 months, in the same time you will save for retirement and have a life insurance paid for. Let’s say you have not saved any money other than the down payment for your house. You are relatively young. The sooner you start this, the better will work for you. As a rule of thumb for an IUL to work, you will need at least 12 to 15 years.
Pull Money Out as a Loan at 0%
Instead of making extra payments toward your mortgage, you will be making payments in an IUL. If you have more money saved, you can put that money in the IUL as well.
Since you are relatively young, the amount of money that goes toward the life insurance part of an IUL policy is very small. Most of the money will go towards the cash value. The compounding interest will help the cash value grow exponentially. After 12 to 15 years take a 0% loan from the cash value portion of your IUL and pay off the mortgage.
Since this is a loan and not an actual withdrawal from the account, the value in the Cash Value account is still intact and will continue to grow for your retirement.
The loan doesn’t have to be paid back until you pass away and it will be paid from the death benefit. Once you understand the power of compound interest and how much the cash value can grow into your IUL account, for your retirement, you will kick yourself for not signing up for an IUL earlier.
Your Account Has Protection Against Market Crashes
The cash value account in an IUL, is relatively safe against a major crash because of the guaranteed floor rate of 0%. Also, historically, in the past 20 years the S&P index has provided an average return bigger than your mortgage interest rate. Is that rate guaranteed… no it’s not. We don’t know which way the market will go. We don’t have a magic ball, but historically speaking you are way ahead.
Where would you rather put your money into? To pay off a low interest rate that your mortgage loan has or into something that produces compound interest at a higher rate (historically speaking). On top of it, it’s safe from a market crash and continues to grow with compound interest.
Added Protection Against Really Dark Days When You Can't Make Your Mortgage Payments Anymore.
Now let me run another scenario for you.
Let’s say that you are 8 years into the 30 years it takes paying off your mortgage. Life is throwing a monkey wrench into your plans and you got fired from your well paid job. You are behind in your payments and you receive the dreaded foreclosure notice.
If you would have made extra payments toward paying off the principal in your mortgage, do you think the mortgage company will take that into consideration and not foreclose on you? Of course not. The only way you will stop that foreclosure process is if you bring money to the table.
Let’s say the only money you have saved are in a tax deferred account, like a 401 K. Your only option is to
pull money out of your 401K. Since you are not 59 ½ years old, you will have to pay a 10% tax on top of the income tax and your retirement nest egg will take a major hit.
If you have an IUL you will be able to get a 0% loan against the cash value in your account. The balance on the cash value will not be affected, continue to grow and you brought your mortgage payments current.
