Happy New Year from Sagicor! We’re kicking off 2024 with a strategy for business owners, a Milestone MYGA rate and renewal commission reminder, and ideas for Peak 65 conversations starters. 


Section 162 Bonus Plans for business owners 

The tight labor market eased recently, but economists and demographers say aging boomers, smaller subsequent generations, and lower birth and immigration rates indicate a long-term labor shortage and ongoing hiring challenges.1 


Help business owners find and keep employees, especially those with unique skills, by letting them know about Section 162 Bonus Plans. Share this case study to show them how a Section 162 Bonus Plan featuring Sage Indexed Universal Life Insurance (Sage IUL) captures multiple benefits for their business and their key employees. Remember to add your contact information on page 3!


Milestone MYGA rate and renewal commission reminder

Don't forget about our latest Milestone Multi-Year Guaranteed Single Premium Deferred Annuity (Milestone MYGA) rates and our renewal commission program, which makes this fixed annuity even more attractive.

The care crisis is here — help your clients prepare 

As more Americans age, many will face serious issues finding appropriate, affordable care. Even those who planned ahead by purchasing long-term care insurance now find themselves frustrated by the claim process, lack of providers, and coverage gaps that can be financially catastrophic.4 


During client meetings, remember to discuss asset diversification with an eye toward future care needs. Share this flyer to educate your clients on the advantages of our IUL portfolio, which features a built-in Accelerated Death Benefit Rider at no additional cost.5, 6, 7 If your client develops a chronic or terminal illness, these policies advance a portion of the death benefit, generally tax free, to be used however they see fit.8, 9


Future tax increases are a top concern for workers 

A new study on market perceptions shows 72% of respondents anticipate higher taxes will reduce their future income from 401(k)s and IRAs. Just as important? 73% say they will switch advisors if they fail to address potential tax risks in retirement.10 


Show your clients you’re ready to assist them and their tax and estate team by sharing this case study featuring Ashley, 40, a pharma executive with a growing income who’s seeking tax-advantaged ways to save more for her future.
