Bequest of InsuranceMarla and Wayne purchased a life insurance policy many years ago to create security for their children's future. As the children grew up, married, found good jobs and accumulated significant assets, the insurance was no longer needed for its original purpose.
Wayne: I wasn't ready to part with the insurance quite yet. I wanted to preserve the option of giving it to our family if someone needed extra help down the road. We both wondered if there was a way we could commit now to help our favorite charity's work but make our gift at a later date when it was clear the policy wouldn't be used.
Wayne: I also liked the fact that our estate would benefit from tax savings, which would help to preserve other assets intended for our family.
