Premium funding: Strategies and outcomes for different client segments
Tax considerations for insurance payouts
Life insurance proceeds and the $1.6m transfer balance cap

Significant changes to the rules covering insurance policies held inside super have occurred over recent years. These changes, together with lower contribution caps and further limits imposed on retirement income stream balances, mean that decisions have to be made as to whether superannuation is still an appropriate vehicle for your client's insurance policies.

This webinar is designed to take you through what you absolutely must do, what your clients can’t do, and the structuring opportunities and considerations for insurance inside super.
