Insurance applications paper


Insurance is sometimes a “forgotten area” for SMSFs. This paper addresses the crucial role of insurance in SMSFs, by considering the following:

  • does insurance have a role to play in SMSFs?
  • can group life be offered to SMSFs?
  • what happens to insurance after commencement of an income stream?
  • is there a role for insurance in connection with an SMSF borrowing strategy?
  • deductions for premiums/assessability of insurance proceeds
  • insurance applications: life, disability, trauma, terminal illness, income replacement
  • tax effectively managing receipt of taxable component/element untaxed inthe fund
  • allocation of insurance proceeds to reserve and availability of tax deductionsfor death benefit payments.
