Whole Life Insurance will provide protection from the day you purchase the policy until you die. In addition, premiums will remain the same throughout the life of the policy.
A Whole Life Insurance policy may:
- Earn an annual dividend1, which will be paid in cash, left to accumulate interest, used to reduce premiums or purchase additional coverage.
- Allow you to take a policy loan against the policy cash value and the cash value of any paid-up addition.
- Let you withdraw the cash value of any paid-up additions and/or any dividends left to accumulate interest.
Additionally, your beneficiaries can use the proceeds to:
- Pay off mortgages and other outstanding debts.
- Avoid having to sell assets or incur debt to cover any estate taxes and other expenses.
Other Available Options
There are several additional coverage options that can be purchased:
- Waiver of Premium Rider - Allows the premium to be waived after 180 consecutive days of total disability.
- Accidental Death Benefit Rider - May increase the death benefit if death occurs as the result of an accident.
- Guaranteed Insurability Rider - Allows for the purchase of additional life insurance at certain intervals without proof of good health.
- Paid-Up Additional Insurance Rider - Allows for the purchase of additional life insurance, with proof of good health, while premium is still being paid. This rider may increase your policy's surrender value and death benefit and can also earn dividends.1
