Reward Your Employees and Benefit Your Business​

An executive bonus plan can help.

Business planning

One way to attract, reward and retain top employees is through the use of an executive bonus plan.

An executive bonus plan is a flexible and discretionary plan that can be a simple and cost-effective way to provide a tax-deductible benefit to a key employee. It is a basic arrangement where the employer makes the premium payments for a life insurance contract owned by the employee. The bonus is usually tax-deductible for the business and is taxable to the employee as ordinary income.

Potential advantages for the employer:

  • The employer selects which employees will be eligible to receive the bonus.
  • The employer determines the amount of the bonus for each eligible employee.
  • The employer receives a tax deduction equal to the amount of the bonus.

Potential advantages for the employee:

  • The employee owns the contract and can name the beneficiaries.
  • Liquid cash is available upon the employee’s death and life insurance death benefits are usually received income tax-free.
  • Any available cash values are accessible through loans and/or withdrawals.

For more information on how an executive bonus plan can help you, please talk to a Modern Woodmen representative.
