Would overfunding a Permanent Life Insurance Policy have tax consequences?

Does anybody know if over funding a life insurance policy would have any negative tax consequences?

I am planning in put additional sums of money into my existing Prudential Whole life insurance policy, as my agent tells me that it might be a good idea as it tends to build the cash value up faster. But what are tax consequences of this and does this like a good idea??

hello, the answer is yes. In 1987 the gov. came in and said "whoa, hold up here" people are putting too much money inside of this deal here and we are not making any money off of this, in fact this looks way too good to be true. Now there is called a MEC line that you can put money up to, if you cross over the MEC line then there are tax consequences. MEC means Modified Endowment Contract. So, Essentially think of the Contract as a box, you can fund the box as full as it can go and as fast as you can, but you cannot create a bigger box or put in more money than it will hold or it Will become a MEC. When looking at these proposials the computer system will tell you the max you can put into this and how fast you can do it before it becomes a MEC. Hope this helps. DO YOURSELF A MAJOR FAVOR THOUGH, DO A 1035 EXCHANGE FOR ALL OF YOUR CASH VALUES AND PUT IN INTO A NORTHWESTERN MUTUAL POLICY, IT'S NOT EVEN CLOSE, NORTHWESTERN SMOKES EVERYONE IN THE INDUSTRY IN PERMANENT LIFE INS. 85% OF CEO'S IN THE U.S. STICK $ INTO THIS TYPE OF NON-QUALIFIED EXECUTIVE BENEFIT BONUS PLAN WITH NORTHWESTERN. YOUR POLICY WILL BE WORTH HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS MORE. PLEASE EMAIL IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE INFO.
