Bouman: President Reagan’s Secret 702(j) Retirement Plan

Several times over the past few weeks I have been asked if I knew anything about “President Reagan’s Retirement Plan” and a 702(j)-retirement plan. I had never heard of such a thing, so I decided to investigate it. Here’s the deal folks. There is no such thing. This concept goes by many names. The 770 account, the 702(j), the 7702, The Presidents Secret Account, Invisible account, etc. It resurfaces every few years with a new name and new marketing approach from salesmen in the insurance business.

A 702(j) is not actually a retirement savings plan
