419(e) deduction calculation

Recommended Posts

For plans subject to 419(e) deduction limits, it is understood that the deduction is limited to the "qualified cost", where such cost is computed as the level premium for the death benefit coverage of a life insurance policy.

The question is when determining the qualified cost, is it necessary to compute the death benefit based on the guaranteed policy rates or the assumed policy rates?

With the assumed rates the death benefit is higher or the coverage extends to an older age, due to the greater return on the investment.

The guaranteed v. assumed rates are shown in the policy illustrations.
