When meeting with parents, Klark Software offers a number of proposals that can be used to discuss concepts for juvenile planning. They are Gift of a Lifetime, Effects of Waiting, ABCD Comparison and College Funding.
Klark Software's ABCD Comparison proposal clearly shows your client the option of converting their term insurance. It allows you to illustrate your client's present term product side by side with the permanent plans you propose they convert to. You can show the values of each policy for the time period, 10 years, 20 years 30 years out, of your choice based on the illustrations you create for each plan. The values shown are the Death Benefit, Cash Value and Total Outlay or Total Premium paid. The resulting proposal will simply illustrate your client options for converting their Term Policy.

Use the Effects of Waiting proposal to emphasize the merits of purchasing a whole life contract at a younger age. It is important for your client to understand the nature of permanent insurance and why, if they wait to purchase a permanent product, there is a "cost" to waiting. Not only in terms of a higher annual premiums and reduced future policy values but also the possibility that a change in one's health may result in becoming uninsurable.
This is an excellent proposal for comparing the relative values of up to four plans side by side. You may show variations on an individual product, for example, using a dividend to fund the death benefit versus reducing premium, or display different product types side-by-side. It can also be used for term conversions, to illustrate the policy growth of a permanent plan, educating a client about premium modes and how additional premium affects the value and benefit in a permanent plan.
Use this proposal to simplify the recommendation of additional disability coverage. It is a before-and-after proposal that quantifies what percentage of their income is presently covered versus the coverage you recommend. We've had numerous users tell us that by referring to colors only, your client will track with you during the presentation.
Discounted Dollars illustrates the leverage of a permanent insurance contract by showing how a significantly large, tax free sum of money can be funded by a relatively small outlay. The presentation will illustrate a customized timeline comparing the death benefit, premiums paid and a sinking fund financed by the annual premium amount. The idea being that you can buy permanent coverage for pennies on the dollar and that even if you take into account the cost of money, nothing beats permanent life insurance for generating tax free dollars over the long haul.
Use this proposal to emphasize to your prospect the importance of understanding the economic earning potential of an individual during his or her working career. If we insure our homes and cars, it only makes sense to insure the "money making machine" that provides these necessities.
At any given point in our careers, our future earning potential can be represented by a sum of money invested today, at a given interest rate, that would generate the same amount of money as we would have earned in the work force. This amount of money represents our present human life value.
The Long Term Care Proposal illustrates the cost difference between your client self funding their own long term care versus buying coverage. It is an effective way to educate someone as to the probability and potential costs of long term care.
The Provide ? proposal shows the depletion of capital given five simple assumptions. It powerfully illustrates how long a specified amount of capital will last before being entirely depleted. Use it to show how long an insurance death benefit would replace the earning potential of an individual or how long an income may be expected for retirement purposes. Provide ? will help your client visualize the timeline of the benefit their capital provides.
Qualified assets are the primary means for funding most retirement programs. This proposal helps you show your client a "snapshot" of how well those qualified assets are funding their retirement goals. Because this proposal deals with just one asset type, it is possible to calculate the annual percentage needed to be saved for the remaining working years to achieve their retirement goal. Just keep in mind, in this simple proposal, we are limiting ourselves only to qualified assets.
