How to buy life insurance as a gift [1
Give to your charity: a gift from holiday life insurance
You can buy a life insurance for the benefit of your favorite charity or religious institution. Upon your death, the benefits go from the insurance to the charity, which provides much-needed – and appreciated – financial support to the group. While you live, you remain the insurance owner and pay the premiums and appoint the charity you choose as the beneficiary. You can also name more than one beneficiary, so the death benefit goes to more than one person or charity. This strategy can also provide some tax benefits.

When considering what to buy for your loved ones for the holidays, a life insurance policy may not be in focus – but these gifts are appreciated. The best insurances are lifelong insurances, as they build a cash value over time and become an asset that the owner can borrow against. Should the person covered die, the cash benefit is paid without incurring any tax debt.
