New York Life has a history of being there when clients need us most – and for more than 175 years, the company has had a front-row seat to observe changing consumer outlooks when it comes to strategies and solutions to address financial needs, thanks to the 12,000 industry-leading financial professionals connecting with people in their communities every day. The recent launch of New York Life Million Plus Level Term, a new term insurance policy that offers death benefit protection of $1 million or more, is another way the company is developing life insurance solutions that meet a variety of consumer needs.
Introducing product offerings to meet consumer needs
“Our latest term insurance is another example of how we continue to enhance solutions we provide to new and existing clients,” said Kyle Mickas, Corporate Vice President, Insurance Solutions. “New York Life Million Plus Term Insurance was designed to help meet the needs of growing families, high-earning pre-retirees, and business owners, with added benefits and riders available to ensure policy owners have what they need, no matter what the future may bring – at a more competitive price than our other term products at higher coverage levels .”
Because some people may realize they need more than a million dollars’ worth of life insurance coverage and want to start with a term insurance product – life insurance with coverage set for a certain amount of time or ‘term’ – the company launched this solution in March 2021 as a way to provide protection for clients and capture an opportunity to introduce a competitive solution to the market. New York Life Million Plus Term Insurance also provides the option to convert1 from term to permanent or long-term life insurance within five years of the policy being in force.
This type of term product helps a variety of consumers, including small business owners, pre-retirees and growing families. For example, growing families with at least one high-earning partner may decide to incorporate an added level of preparedness to their portfolios in order to provide income replacement for a number of years, help fund potential private or higher education costs that may be part of the family’s longer-term financial goals and equipping them with the ability to achieve other financial goals should their situation change. Within the first five years, the family may choose to convert to permanent life insurance, through which they have an opportunity to accumulate cash value over time.
