Life insurance & taxes after age 100
The Internal Revenue Service is reviewing its tax code in light of the upgrade to the life insurance industries mortality tables.

The IRS has recognized that the 2001 Commissioners Standard Ordinary (CSO) extend mortality to age 121. This change is significant because until this point, the Internal Revenue Code has followed rules which assume that cash-value life insurance policies will mature when the insured attains an age of 95 to 100. The IRS has proposed to provide a safe harbor for that cash after age 100 and is seeking comments to this proposal.
