Living Benefits is a rider in your life insurance so you don't have to die to use. It covers Terminal Illness, Chronic Illness & Critical Illness, we believe you should get more from a life insurance policy. We think you should have access to benefits you can use, while you are living.

 

The future is unpredictable... are you and your family prepared?

Terminal Illness

 

Provides you the option of receiving your death benefi t early if a person covered under the policy is terminally ill. For purposes of this
rider, terminal illness means that a doctor has certifi ed that the insured’s death is expected within two years, one year in CT, VT and PA.

 

If this situation exists, you may:

  • Request the full acceleration, on a discounted basis, of the policy’s death benefi t and use the lump-sum as you wish,

  • Choose to leave a portion of the policy’s death benefit intact for your benefi ciary, or

  • Leave the entire policy intact for your benefi ciary.

 

This is available at no additional premium and is intended to qualify for favorable tax reatment. This benefits may be used for any purpose.

Chronic Illness

 

Provides you the option of receiving your death benefi t early if a person covered under the policy is chronically ill. For purposes of this
rider, chronic illness means that a doctor has certified that the insured is either unable to perform two of the six daily activities of living
without assistance (bathing, continence, dressing, eating, toileting, and transferring) or is cognitively impaired (deterioration or loss in
intellectual capacity). Benefits are available after the rider is in force for two years.

 

If a chronic illness exists and after a 90-day waiting period, you may:

  • Request to accelerate up to 2% of the death benefit each month to use as you wish, or

  • Leave the policy intact for your beneficiary.

 

This is available at no additional premium and is intended to qualify for favorable tax treatment. This benefi ts may be used for any purpose.

Critical Illness

 

Provides you the option of receiving your death benefi t early if a person covered under the policy is critically ill. For purposes of this rider, critical illness is defi ned as a heart attack, stroke, cancer, a major organ transplant, blindness, or having been diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) or end stage renal failure.

 

If one of these illnesses exist, you may:

  • Request the full acceleration of the policy’s death benefit and use the lump-sum as you wish,

  • Choose to leave a portion of the policy’s death benefit intact for your beneficiary, or

  • Leave the entire policy intact for your beneficiary.

 

The level of discounting applied to the death benefi t varies depending upon the insured’s age and the severity of the critical illness.
