Insurance Inside an SMSF Webinar

The insurances that are allowed inside an SMSF, how to structure them effectively and what clients should really be doing!
Recorded Friday 4 October 2019

Life insurance, TPD & income protection: What your clients need to know!
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.
