Life Insurance

Life presents many challenges. Whether you are a business, family, or an individual, ensuring that you and your assets are protected does not have to be one of those challenges. Our team of highly credentialed and experienced advisors provides comprehensive solutions – including consultations and insurance plans tailored to your specific requirements – to meet your need to mitigate risk. Our level of involvement doesn’t stop there. Our team can also help you navigate discussions with insurance carriers and obtain reimbursements for claims.

Life insurance is fundamental to every financial plan. It might even be considered an asset class of its own. It provides families with income replacement in case of pre-retirement death or serves as a post-retirement legacy benefit. It protects your family and business, and it helps transfer wealth from generation to generation.

Although it is possible to have guaranteed income for life with a fixed annuity, there is no assurance that this income will keep up with inflation. There is a surrender charge imposed generally during the first 5 to 7 years or during the rate guarantee period. The guarantee of an annuity is backed by the claims paying ability of the issuing insurance company. There is a surrender charge imposed generally during the first 5 to 7 years that you own a variable annuity contract. Withdrawals prior to age 59½ may result in a 10% IRS tax penalty, in addition to any ordinary income tax. Investment sub-account values will fluctuate with changes in market conditions.

An investment in a variable annuity involves investment risk, including possible loss of principal. Variable annuities are designed for long-term investing. The contract, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the total amount invested. Variable annuities are subject to insurance-related charges including mortality and expense charges, administrative fees, and the expenses associated with the underlying sub-accounts. Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks and charges and expenses of the variable annuity carefully before investing. The prospectus contains this and other information about the variable annuity. Contact your financial professional to obtain a prospectus, which should be read carefully before investing or sending money.

I have worked with Summit since 2009 and have known Rick Christy for 15 years or so. Rick and Summit were very instrumental in helping my wife and me use insurance products to plan for our retirement. I can’t overstate how significant their support in this one area has been, as their advice has put us in the position to be able to retire ahead of plan! Beyond that, Summit was great counsel to us as we sought long-term care insurance.
