Second-To-Die Policy

Second-To-Die Policy in Chesterland, OH and serving Northeast Ohio

 

ENSURE THE FUTURE OF YOUR ESTATE

Between physical assets and financial successes, there are many things that married couples share.

 

Luczkowski Agency Insurance and Financial Services knows that couples today, can accumulate wealth and assets that can mean hefty estate taxes in the event of either spouse’s passing.

A second-to-die policy, also known as survivorship insurance, is a type of joint insurance that covers the lives of two people, usually married couples, where the death benefit is not paid until the death of the second insured person.

Under federal tax law*, you are permitted to leave an unlimited amount of personal assets to the surviving spouse, allowing you to postpone estate taxes until the death of the second spouse. While this lets you keep personal assets, such as home or business, within the family, it also means that your beneficiaries may be faced with paying a large estate tax after your passing.

Our second-to-die policy gives your beneficiaries the means to pay off your estate taxes, without having to liquidate the personal assets you’ve worked hard to attain.

And because the policy insures more than one person, you may also enjoy a lower premium. And the total cost of the insurance may be cheaper than the estate taxes your beneficiaries will be liable to pay.

Due to the specialized nature of second-to-die insurance, some limitations may apply. It’s important to discuss your options with one of our insurance specialists to determine the right amount coverage for you and your family.

 

*Federal income tax laws are complex and subject to change. Neither Nationwide nor its representatives give legal or tax advice. Please consult your attorney or tax advisor for answers to specific questions.

What our clients say about us.

I started with Barb because I had been fussing with my old personal lines carrier about their billing cycle.  I sure wasn’t expecting the thoroughness of her presentation, and her genuine concern that we had adequate coverage for our situation.  The cost was about the same, but the care so much better that we switched.  With no pressure from the agency, we submitted our business insurance for review and they recommended some things that made very good sense, again at a reasonable price, so we switched that over.  The office responds to our customer’s request to provide COI’s immediately and accurately.  So, having done so well with all things insurance, when I lost my private health coverage, among many options, I checked with the agency about putting together a company plan, which we now offer to our employees.  I can’t say enough about the genuine interest that this agency has in making sure we are balancing the cost of insurance vs our genuine need for protection.  They’re pleasant, easy to work with, personable, and have our best interest at heart.

Kristine Shreves

Barb and the agents at the Luczkowski Agency are GREAT!!  Whenever I have a question, I do not hesitate to call or send an email because I know they will get back to me with an answer.  They are kind, efficient, and extremely helpful.  Recently, I switched with another carrier associated with the Luczkowski Agency because Barb wanted to help bring my high insurance rates down. She knew that being a single parent with a college student was costly for me.  I cannot say enough good things about this agency.

Melissa Eisel

We have been with Nationwide for almost 20 years now and wouldn’t think of switching to anyone else. We have been with Luczkowski Agency for a lot of that time and they take excellent care of us. We get great rates and they update them twice a year and give us savings anytime they are available. When other homes on our street got flooded, we were the only ones who actually got help from our Insurance Company! The only ones. I couldn’t believe the other companies didn’t do anything for their clients. They have gone out of their way to make life bearable when it has been hard and trials have come. We have used the car towing service repeatedly and they have always been there. We love Nationwide and think they are exceptional.

Barb and her team are the best. Service and attention to detail assure me that  I have the right coverage, no more or less than I need, and at the right price. I have homeowners, auto, and even my motorcycle insurance with the Luczkowski Agency.

I had an auto claim, repairs done at the shop I chose, and no hassles at all getting the work paid. The follow up was great,  Barb called to be sure the work was done and I was happy.

I give Luczkowski Agency my highest rating!
