Right after Joe Tyler’s daughter was born, both Joe, a consultant, and his wife Caroline, a stay-at-home mom, purchased life insurance. Less than a year later, Caroline died of cancer at age 33. With the insurance proceeds, Joe reduced his mortgage and hired a nanny. Soon, wishing to devote more time to raising his daughter, he used the equity in his home to purchase a Connecticut farmhouse and begin a new career as an antiques dealer. Insurance helped Joe transition to a lifestyle that allowed him more time with his young daughter.

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.
