Life insurance proceeds are not taxable when they are paid out

as a death benefit. Depending on the amount of the insurance policy

the payout options should be either lump sum, annuitized, fixed

monthly payments for a period of time, or left with the insurance

company in an interest bearing account with check writing

privileges.
