written by reader The “Secret” 770 Account

By bfchmv, May 31, 2013

I just read a very provocative teaser (aren’t they all, though?) from Tom Dyson in his Palm Beach Letter. It talked about a ”secret” 770 Account that is taken advantage of by a huge list of the very wealthy, not to mention by banks and other financial institutions, This 770 Account gives a steady 5%interest, plus you can access your money at any time, ……and it is all tax free!! ….under the radar, so to speak. Travis, could you please enlighten us poor peons to this fabulous deal?

I just heard about this. I’m past 70 and need to retire, but don’t feel secure in doing so. Is this something that would benefit someone my age? I thought about trying to put in a small amount, maybe $2000 to see how it works. Do I have to pay a premium each month like insurance? How long do you need to keep the money in before you could draw it out if you weren’t satisfied?

Annete,
To answer your questions.
Would you be able to benefit? It depends in many factors. You will have to talk with somebody that is very familiar with this type of account and won’t be just trying to push a sale, but will truly look into your situation and will give you the best advise.

It may still apply, but you may have to do it in a different way. I will give you an example – I just had a client who is 68 buying one of these “770 accounts”. He didn’t have the time to build his policy over the years (putting a monthly or annual premium etc). So we had to do a lump sum – a Single Premium. He had about $500,000 on the stock market, and was worry about loosing his money because of the volatility of the market and the present economic conditions etc. He needed a place to park his money, so he was going to do a CD or money market account that was going to pay him less than 1%.

So we suggested to open this Policy with a single premium from a reputable company (rated A+, paying interests and dividends for over 100 years even on the great depression etc). And they have Guarantees (not like the stock market etc). This were the results:
Single Premium of $500,000.
First year he will end up with just $472,000. Now if we just stop here, then we can conclude that it is the worse investment possible. But let’s see what happened the next years.
After 2.5 years he recapture every single dollar and have a Death Benefit of $810,000.
After that point on, his money will grow at a rate of about 4%!! Way better than any CD or money market account. His money will continually grow tax deferred with guaranteed results for the rest of his life.

Now, that 4% is because the interest rates are so low, but once the interest rates start going up, the interest and dividends that the company will pay are going to be higher as well. So I am hoping interest rates are going to start climbing – because then this policy will do even better than what I am describing right now.

The bad thing about this strategy: you will loose some of the tax-free benefits. It will still grow tax deferred, but gains that exceed your cost basis (premium you paid) are taxable, BUT until the cash value exceeds the cost basis, taking a loan or withdrawal does not create a taxable event. (still much better than a CD or money market)

But if you have specific questions or concerns, let me know. You can always write me an email to edgar@arceofinancial.com, and we can talk about your specific situation and see if it would make sense to you.

I forgot to answer your last question: You have a 20 day “free look” – if for any reason, you don’t like the policy, you can cancel without paying penalties. You will get all your money back.

Edgar, I would like to know who in my area handles these accounts and also I would like more detailed info. Your example above on the person who wanted to skip the monthly premiums and invested 500,000 dollars left to many open questions. Try this one please. Let’s say someone wants to do the same thing; what is the least amount of money one can invest to skip the monthly premiums and how long before they start seeing a turnaround like you showed above (800,000 dollars) or course not 800,000 but what would be the equivalent and in what time frame. People starting out don’t have that kind of money. The video on 770 accounts presents it like it’s a particular bank account that you deposit money and it earns 5% interest annually tax-free. But so far with the research I’ve done, it does not seem that simple. What the real scoop? Thanks.

Paul,
The turnaround was not 800,000 on my example. That was the Death Benefit you will receive. The turnaround on year 2.5 was that he was going to have the $500k he initially put in, and after that point on, his money was going to grow (tax deferred) at a 4%+ rate.
You are right, this system is not that simple. Is not like putting money into an account and done, it needs more commitment on your part etc.
If you want to just do ONE single premium, then you can do as little as $10k if you want.
Now in order for you to get that 5%+ interest rate annually tax free, you will need to do a different strategy – monthly or annual premiums for a specific period of time… But if you need more information or have specific questions, send me an email. I have receive so many emails that I decided to write a letter answering ALL the questions I have received from people all over the US. That letter is a little too long for me to post it here, but I would love to send you that letter if you are interested. (don’t worry – I won’t send you any more emails after that unless you request it).
God Bless you.

Paul. Did you notice that whenever someone asks Edgar about “investing” a small amount to get started with this “plan”, he jump to the story of the man who puts $500,000 in for starters. Edgar is looking to make a lot of money and then go away. BEWARE!

Yes I would like to read the letter you mentioned regarding all of the questions about the “770” account and what it truly is. I am 67 years old and I am in no way interested in anything but “safe” investments. Is this something that is FDIC insured? Truly tax-free?

I have just been thru a very traumatic half million dollar divorce. So at 78 I now have half of what I expected to be living on in my retirement. Is the 770 worth investing in so I can rebuild my assets get a dividend and move on?
Am I too old for this sure thing investment?
Father died at 77, brother at just 78. Mother at 98, but severe Alzheimer’s s last six years.
So statistically do I have time to invest and reap the benefits?

I don’t know who this Edgar fellow is, or what country he’s operating from. But, he’s dabbling in insurance and investments, two instruments that are governed by Federal laws in the United States. He is approaching the rim of the Blue Sky laws: painting a pretty picture while just pulling numbers out of thin air. Buyers beware! Edgars grammar isn’t any better than his logic. There’s no free lunch anymore. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Ask your CPA. He/she has nothing to gain by telling you to jump in like he might be getting a kickback. I think not. CPA’s have too much to lose to take flyers on scams or recommend them to their clients and friends.
