Second-To-Die Policy in Sioux Falls SD & Lake Lillian MN

Ensure the Future of Your Estate.

Between physical assets and financial successes, there are many things that married couples share. First State Agency knows that couples today can easily accumulate wealth in the millions, which means 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.

A Second-to-Die policy from First State Agency 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’ll also enjoy a lower premium, and the total cost of the insurance will 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 an insurance specialist from First State Agency 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.

Testimonials

A recent hail storm caused damage to my vehicle. Fortunately, I'm insured with Jake at First State Agency. Within minutes of the damage, Jake actually called with information on the claim process. The products and service you'll find at FSA is second to none. Thank you Jake for saving me time and money.

Jake Nordin and First State Agency were great help when a hail storm came through Sioux Falls and damaged one of our vehicles and a part of our house. He was willing to help and made sure that I was getting a fair price for the damage.

Thanks for having another great appreciation event at your office last week. Very nice. Thanks also for taking care of my recent tractor fire claim that was caused by the rubber dynamic balancer failing and starting the tractor on fire. Fortunately my associate was able to drive the six miles to the fire with an extinguisher and get the fire out before it destroyed the tractor. Insurance covered repairing the fire damage. I really appreciated that years ago First State Agency had made sure I had coverage for miscellaneous issues that will come up when a fire happens. I found out that I not only had coverage for the fire damage, but I had insurance for a rental tractor I needed to finish the farm work that still needed to be done why the tractor was getting repaired. You never know how good your insurance is until you have a problem. Glad that First State Agency had this covered.
