If you're looking at Universal Life, you're probably seeking to maximize your long-term protection.

Here are some factors to consider when thinking about Universal Life:

Guarantee vs. flexibility

For some people, a guaranteed death benefit is the most important aspect of their policy. It means peace of mind. For others, flexible premium payments are more important, which means the death benefit could fluctuate.

Your level of oversight

Perhaps you're the kind of person who prefers to buy something, put it away, and then expect it to be there when needed. Others may prefer to monitor their policies and make changes as desired, but this can introduce more risk.

Universal Life: Current Performance

If you're looking for flexibility, Current Performance allows you the freedom to customize and update premiums or benefits as your needs change. Some of our clients prefer this product because it gives them long-term protection with the ability to manage costs to stay within their budget.

Universal Life: Custom Guarantee

If you are like our clients who value a guaranteed death benefit, then Custom Guarantee might work for you. You pay the same premium to maintain coverage for as long as you choose.

Work with a financial professional to customize your policy with these add-ons, which are also known as riders:

Protecting for health events

If you want to tap into your policy’s death benefit tax free, to protect against financial hardship should you become chronically ill, you might want to purchase our Chronic Care option. This is available for Custom Guarantee policies only.

Get your money back

You will always have the security of being able to get money back if something changes down the road with the Money Back option. It automatically comes with a Custom Guarantee policy.
