Those of you familiar with Nelson Nash’s “Becoming Your Own Banker” know that to obtain efficiency in the generation of maximum cash values in your IBC policy, you should design it as close as possible to the MEC line.

On the other hand, if you follow Nelson’s teachings, you also know that when you take a policy loan against the cash value of your IBC policy, you should repay your loan at an interest rate comparable to the one that an alternative source, let’s say a credit card, would charge you. The dollar difference between this rate and what the insurance company is charging you, should be deposited in your policy as an additional contribution to your PUA rider. This means that you should have enough capacity in your PUA rider to accept this additional contribution. But wait a minute, if you have built this additional capacity in your policy, it means that it is not as close as possible to the MEC line for maximum efficiency. How do you solve this dilemma?

It is absolutely true that there is a trade-off between efficiency and flexibility in the design of IBC policies. We always ask our clients how much flexibility they desire in their IBC policies or how much additional capacity they wish to allow their PUA riders. If the answer is up to 10 or 20% additional PUA capacity, we design the policy this way. If the answer is higher than 20%, we recommend that to keep efficiency, they take two smaller IBC policies but that combined allow for the extra PUA capacity. This way, you have enough extra PUA capacity between the two policies, but each individual policy is efficient.
