Second-To-Die Policy in Lubbock TX & Brownfield TX

Ensure the Future of Your Estate.

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

Thank y'all for being so easy to work with. It has really been a stress free year with our insurance, since we have joined you!
- Drew and Bailey L.
Our home had a pipe leak upstairs, but we did not realize the damage until it busted and flooded our home. We were so relieved that Darrell and Bunny made sure we had provisions for water damage in the homeowners policy. The Safeco adjuster took a load of stress away with his prompt response and assurance. We were able to focus on restoration and move on without any struggles of dealing with a claim. We are thankful that Darrell and Bunny were intent on getting us the protection we needed. Their experience and competence spared us a major loss! We have confidence in their team for taking care of business! Terry and Tricia Campbell
