1 Under current federal tax rules, you generally may take income-tax-free partial withdrawals under a life insurance policy that is not a Modified Endowment Contract (MEC) up to your basis in the contract. Additional amounts are includible in income. The IRS places a limit on how much money can go into life insurance premiums for the policy and how quickly such premiums can be paid in order for the policy to retain all of its tax benefits. If certain limits are exceeded, a MEC results. MEC policyholders may be subject to taxes on distributions to the extent there is gain in their policy and penalties on any taxable amount if they are not 59½ or older. Loans taken will be free of current income tax as long as the policy remains in effect until the Insured's death, does not lapse, and is not a Modified Endowment Contract.
Please note that outstanding loans accrue interest. Income-tax-free treatment also assumes the loan will eventually be satisfied from income-tax-free death benefit proceeds. Loans and withdrawals reduce the policy’s cash value and death benefit and increase the chance that the policy may lapse. If the policy lapses, is surrendered or becomes a MEC, the loan balance at such time would generally be viewed as distributed and taxable under the general rules for distribution of policy cash values.
