Lauri Turnes was struggling financially to make ends meet. She was a single mom who wanted to cancel her life insurance several times because of financial pressures, but her insurance agent cautioned against it. When money was especially tight, Lauri’s agent arranged for her to borrow money from the policy rather than cancel it, which allowed it to remain in force. Not long afterward, a car accident took Lauri’s life. Her life insurance and death benefit from her auto insurance policy have provided her daughter, Jessi, with financial security.

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 percent 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 benefits may be taxable and may also effect 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.
