If you become totally and permanently disabled (after six consecutive months of Total Disability), the Waiver of Premium Rider will cover both your insurance premium and your planned annuity rider premium for the life of the policy. (excludes excess premiums)
1. You may request a cash withdrawal from your tax deferred annuity at any time as long as there is a balance available. There are no withdrawal fees or other charges for withdrawals from the Flexible Premium Deferred Annuity Rider or the Flex Annuity Plus Contract.
2. Policy loans are available on the internal income tax free cash values. Loans are available for up to the full surrender value less loan interest in advance to the next policy anniversary. The annual policy loan interest rate is 7.4% payable in advance.*
With this benefit, you can leave a legacy to multiple generations. If your policy was in force for at least five years before your death, your beneficiary will have the following options:
1. The beneficiary can receive all the proceeds in cash income tax free;
2.Or, purchase either a whole life policy or a policy of the same type as this policy then offered by the Company (not to exceed the lesser of the death benefit proceeds received of $150,000) with no medical exam.
3. Or, a combination of both income tax free cash AND purchasing a life insurance policy then offered by the company.
During the first year all of your premium payments go to pay the life insurance premium and optional benefit riders of your policy. Premiums are payable to age 100.
Beginning in the second year, approximately one half of the premiums still pay for Whole Life insurance and optional benefit riders. The remaining premiums automatically go toward the tax deferred annuity vehicle of your choice1
At age 65 or after 5 years, whichever occurs later, the death benefit reduces by 50%.
With this benefit if you are confined to a nursing home at least 30 days after the policy is issued you can receive a monthly benefit of 2.5% of the face amount up to $3,750 per month. (Not available in all states)
At any time after the 10th policy year, you have the option to take a reduced paid-up life insurance. Premium payments towards the life insurance would cease at that point allowing for all payments to be directed towards the tax deferred annuity rider.
Millions of Americans struggle with planning their retirement. With the unpredictable world we live in, more people are worried about today rather than 20-40 years from now. But wouldn't it be great knowing your future is taken care of and even possibly your children's?
