1. Neither North American Company nor any of its agents, employees or representatives are authorized to give tax or legal advice. Advise customers to consult with and rely on their own independent qualified tax or legal advisor before entering into or paying additional premiums with respect to such arrangements or before commencing any charitable giving plan.

2. The primary purpose of life insurance is to provide a death benefit to beneficiaries. Because of the uncertainty surrounding all funding options except savings, it is critical to encourage your clients to make personal savings the cornerstone of your clients' college funding program. However, even a well-conceived savings plan can be vulnerable. Should your clients die prematurely, their savings plan could come to an abrupt end. To protect against this unexpected event, life insurance may be the only vehicle that can help assure the completion of a funding plan. In addition to the financial protection aspect of insurance, the tax-deferred buildup of cash values can be part of your clients' college savings plan. Generally, if the policy is not a Modified Endowment Contract then withdrawals made up to the contract's cost basis are tax free. Moreover, if the policy is not a Modified Endowment Contract, then loans in excess of the cost basis are also tax free as long as the policy remains in force.
