* Loans and withdrawals will decrease the cash value and death benefit.
** Provided all premium payments are made and loan indebtedness does not lapse the policy.
*** Cash value must be sufficient to pay monthly deductions or a guarantee needs to have been chosen at enrollment.

Whole Life Insurance

Whole Life Insurance covers you from the day you buy the policy until you die, generally with level premiums. A whole life policy accrues cash value on a tax-deferred basis that can increase the value of the death benefit. You can access any available cash value during your lifetime. Whole life insurance also can be a valuable tool in estate planning.

Universal Life Insurance

Combines permanent life insurance protection and cash accumulation with the convenience of adjustable rates of interest, premiums, and payment schedules. Universal Life allows you to vary the amount of your coverage to reflect your life situation. Once your policy has accumulated sufficient cash value, you can adjust your premium payment or take cash withdrawals and loans. It is important to note, though, that loan withdrawals, benefit and premium adjustments, and the performance of the underlying portfolio can affect your premium or coverage later.

Survivorship Life Insurance

Also called “second-to-die” life insurance, covers two people under a single policy and pays the benefit upon the death of the second person. Usually, the premiums are less than they would be for two separate policies with the same coverage amount. Survivorship Life Insurance coverage is often used when a husband and wife wish to fund a legacy for children, grandchildren, charities or institutions they support because this type of insurance allows individuals to maximize the life insurance benefit.
