While not guaranteed, our whole life insurance policy may earn you dividends, which are a return of some of your premium. You can choose how to receive your dividends; you can get paid in cash or use them to offset premium payments or purchase additional coverage.
Riders, or optional add-on coverage for your policy, are available to you at an extra cost. An Accelerated Death Benefit Plus Rider provides you with the flexibility of being able to access, under certain conditions, a portion of a policy's death benefit before the insured dies. You may use the funds for any purpose, and in many instances, benefits are generally tax-free. Other available riders include Accidental Death Benefit, Children's Term Insurance and Waiver of Premium.

The ADBR rider is generally automatically included on a life insurance policy at no additional premium subject to underwriting and state availability. The cost of the rider is built into the life insurance premium, though if exercised, the lien created incurs interest unless repaid. The rider allows an advance to be paid against a portion of the death benefit in the form of a lien or loan against the policy provided the insured is diagnosed with a qualifying chronic or terminal illness. Rider terms vary by type of life insurance and state. The type of illness determines the maximum advance amount available. There are no restrictions on how the money from the ADBR can be used after payment. The ADBR is added at no additional premium (although a fee of up to $250 may be charged for an advance payment). Receipt of accelerated benefit payments may adversely affect the recipient's eligibility for Medicaid or other government benefits or entitlements. They may also be considered taxable by the Internal Revenue Service. You should contact your personal tax advisor for assistance.
These policies and benefits may not be available in all states, and benefits may vary by state.
Payment of benefits under the life insurance policy is the obligation of, and is guaranteed by, the issuing company. Guarantees are based on the claims-paying ability of the issuer. Products are backed by the full financial strength of the issuing company.
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.
