Peggy Claus ran her own computer consulting business and was responsible for managing most of the day-to-day affairs of her household. When Peggy died at age 48 of breast cancer, she left behind four sons and a husband who commuted 140 miles a day to get to his job. Peggy’s life insurance helped pay off debts and half of the mortgage on the family home. It also allowed Dan to accept a lower-paying job closer to home so he can tend to the daily needs of his sons.

All guarantees are backed by the claims-paying ability of the insurer. Loans and withdrawals will reduce policy cash values and the death benefit, may have tax consequences, and may also negate any guarantee against lapse. If a policy is a Modified Endowment Contract, distributions (including loans) are taxable to the extent of income in the policy, and an additional 10% federal income tax penalty may apply.
An accelerated death benefit rider or feature of a life insurance policy allows the policyowner to access the death benefit if the insurer is diagnosed with a qualifying terminal illness. Some restrictions and fees may apply. Receipt of the accelerated death benefit may be taxable and may also affect eligibility for public assistance programs.
Exclusions, restrictions, limitations, and reductions in benefits will, in certain situations, apply to your policy. For full details, including costs, call us at 877 276-9429.
