Expedition SIUL™ Survivorship Indexed Universal Life Insurance

An integral part of a personalized plan to transfer the value of the estate or business you have built over the years, Expedition SIUL features the flexibility and versatility to meet a variety of planning challenges, including wealth transfer, charitable gifts and business succession. This policy provides Death Benefit coverage for two people — you and your spouse or business partner — paying a Death Benefit at the second death, and is generally less expensive than two separate policies. It’s an ideal solution that helps ensure you are able to pass on your personal or business assets generally tax-free to the beneficiaries of your choice.

A sense of financial stability for your family. Protection for your business. A lasting legacy for the people and organizations that are meaningful to you. Security for your loved ones while potentially building money to use during your lifetime. Life insurance may be able to help you achieve all these goals, and you can navigate your financial course confidently with Expedition SIULTM.

IMPORTANT DISCLOSURES

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. Index returns do not guarantee that the policy will stay in force.
2 At the time of application, either the Index Accounts with the 1% minimum guaranteed interest rate or the Index Accounts with the 0% minimum guaranteed interest rate must be selected. The Index Accounts with the 0% minimum guaranteed interest rate may have a higher Index Cap Rate, Index Participation Rate, and Index Threshold Rate or a lower Index Spread Rate, as applicable, than the Index Accounts with the 1% minimum guaranteed interest rate during the same period, but this is not guaranteed. The Index Accounts selected at the time of application cannot be changed after the policy is issued.
3 Death Benefits from a life insurance policy are generally paid income tax-free to policy beneficiaries.
4 Accelerated death benefits will reduce the death benefit and may affect the available loan amount and other policy values.
5 Withdrawals, loans and late payments may require that additional premium be paid to keep the No-Lapse Guarantee active.

SIUL is a Universal Life policy. It has insurance related costs. Premiums paid must produce sufficient cash value to pay insurance charges. Indexed returns do not protect against lapse if premiums and returns do not provide sufficient cash value to cover loan interest and insurance costs. Your clients must understand that loan risk means loans may well not be zero cost. Such loan risk and interest costs will reduce account value and will contribute to a risk of policy lapse if account value becomes insufficient to cover charges. 

Payment of the benefits of Columbus Life Insurance Company life insurance products is backed by the full financial strength of Columbus Life Insurance Company, Cincinnati, Ohio. Guarantees are based on the claims-paying ability of the insurer.

Please advise your customer to contact their tax or legal advisor regarding their situation.
