Understanding Foreign Nationals in the U.S. Market

A foreign national, while not explicitly defined in the Internal Revenue Code, is generally an individual who is not a U.S. citizen by birth or naturalization. The Code uses the term “alien” to refer to foreign nationals, differentiating between Resident Aliens and Nonresident Aliens, each having distinct implications for federal tax purposes.

Benefits of U.S. Life Insurance for Foreign Nationals

Foreign nationals have several compelling reasons to consider owning U.S.-based life insurance policies:

  • Death Benefits: These may be structured to evade U.S. income and estate taxes, providing financial security to beneficiaries without the burden of additional taxation.
  • Tax-Deferred Cash Value Growth: The cash value of the policy can grow on a tax-deferred basis, allowing for the accumulation of wealth without immediate tax liabilities.
  • Tax-Advantaged Distributions: Policyholders can access distributions from their life insurance policies in a tax-advantaged manner, enhancing financial flexibility.
  • Liquidity for Heirs: Life insurance provides liquidity that heirs can use to protect their inherited assets, ensuring smooth transitions and covering any immediate expenses or taxes.
  • Estate Planning: Life insurance adds a layer of confidence and predictability to estate planning, ensuring that there are sufficient funds to cover estate taxes and other liabilities.
  • Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) Program**

Life Professionals supports the ITIN program, which is crucial for individuals who:

  • Do not possess a Social Security Number but need coverage.
  • Are working or retired in the U.S. with an ITIN or Green Card and are paying U.S. taxes.
  • Live in the U.S. at the time of application and continuously for a specified period as required by the insurer.
  • Own businesses, real estate, or other financial assets in the U.S.
  • Have a U.S. physician and meet citizenship guidelines.
  • Possess U.S. state-issued identification, such as a driver’s license, photo ID, or passport.
