How to Avoid Common Mistakes When Engaged with IBC
You may be wondering, what could go wrong using the Infinite Banking Concept, or I-B-C? Here are some guidelines to make sure you’re practicing I-B-C correctly and face no unwanted surprises. The I-B-C process involves overfunding the policy early on, and then re-funding in terms of your loan repayments. So while the repayment terms are flexible – you can pay back when you want, or not at all – it’s in the policy-holder’s best interest to pay back the loans. By repaying your loans, you replenish your line of credit with the insurance company, allowing you to re-use the cash values. Above all, avoid surrendering the policy, as it could trigger a taxable event if you’ve taken more out of it than you put into it. Even if you’re having problems paying premiums, it’s better to re-structure the policy and keep it in force until your death than to surrender.
