Second-To-Die Policy in West Chester PA & Downingtown PA

Ensure the Future of Your Estate.

Between physical assets and financial successes, there are many things that married couples share. Keystone State 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 Keystone State 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 Keystone State 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.

Testimonials

No one likes shopping for insurance, but it's something we all have to do. Keystone State Insurance did all the work for me. All of it. Apples to apples, I'm paying less than what I was paying for one car ¦with two cars. I ended up adding my homeowners and soon we'll be getting our life insurance through them as well. Cannot recommend them enough!

I was with my previous company for over 30 years, but being on a fixed income I figured it couldn't hurt to get a quote. The quote was half of what I was paying before! Tina walked me through each step and made sure every detail was covered. I couldn't be happier with my new insurance! Tina and George are always available to answer any questions, the customer service can't be beat! I've been recommending them to all of my family members.

Choosing the right insurance can be a difficult task. George at Keystone State Insurance helped us decided what level of coverage we needed by asking the right questions. He was extremely courteous and patient. Then, he found us a policy that saved us a lot of money for the same level of coverage that we had with another company. He handles any issues with the perfect blend of professionalism and friendliness. It's wonderful to have someone you can trust to manage your car and homeowners insurance and can simplify the process.
