A Self Owned Life and Retirement (S.O.L.A.R.) Insurance Arrangement is an arrangement where an employee purchases a cash value life insurance policy to provide death benefit protection and to help accumulate funds for retirement. The arrangement is funded through employer contributions as IRC § 162 bonuses, through after tax contributions from the employee, or a combination of both. While premium payments must be treated as ordinary income, the employee can borrow money from the Voya IUL-Global Choice life insurance policy to pay taxes.
