Learn More About Life Plus Accelerated Death Benefit Rider

1 Loans will accrue interest. Loans and withdrawals may generate an income tax liability, reduce the Account Value and the Death Benefit, and may cause the policy to lapse. Sufficient premium and account value are necessary to cover insurance costs and charges. 
2 Death Benefits from a life insurance policy are generally paid income tax-free to policy beneficiaries.
3 Accelerated death benefits will reduce the death benefit and may affect the available loan amount and other policy values.
4 Withdrawals, loans and late payments may require that additional premium be paid to keep the No-Lapse Guarantee active.
5 Disability Credit Rider is referred to as Disability Benefit Rider in GA, MD and OK.
6 By paying only the minimum No-Lapse Guarantee premium, you may be forgoing the opportunity to build a higher Account Value. At the end of the No-Lapse Guarantee period provided by either the policy or the rider, you may need to make significant additional premium payments. Withdrawals and loan indebtedness will cause an increase in the premium requirement under the Base and Extended Guarantees. Non-payment of the required minimum premium and changes to the specified amount or Death Benefit option may also damage the No-Lapse Guarantee feature. If the rider lapses, it may not be reinstated. All No-Lapse Guarantees take into account the time value of money (at 5.50% annual interest rate) with respect to premium payments and withdrawals.
7 Insured Insurability Rider is referred to as Guaranteed Insurability Rider in MD and TX.

Life insurance policies contain certain exclusions, limitations, reductions of benefits and terms for keeping them in force. Please contact a financial representative for complete details.
