Premier Life is a Flexible premium adjustable life insurance policy. Guaranteed product features are dependent upon minimum premium requirements and the claims-paying ability of the issuer.
Premier Life policies automatically include a no-lapse guarantee called the Death Benefit Protection (DBP) feature. This feature guarantees that the policy will not default until the insured reaches attained age 100, even if the cash surrender value falls to zero or below, provided that the DBP Value remains greater than zero and policy debt never exceeds the Policy Value. Policy owners who pay only the minimum premium required to keep the Death Benefit Protection in effect may find the Policy Value to be insufficient to keep the policy in force beyond the DBP period (a maximum of age 100). Thereafter, premiums significantly higher than the DBP Premium may be required to keep the policy from lapsing at the end of the DBP period. Factors such as, but not limited to, the amount and timing of premium payments, loans, withdrawals, or any other change allowed under the contract could potentially terminate the DBP Feature prior to age 100. Once terminated, the DBP feature cannot be reinstated.
Insurance policies and/or associated riders and features may not be available in all states. Some riders may have additional fees and expenses associated with them. The Long-Term Care (LTC) rider is an accelerated death benefit rider and may not be available in some states. Maximum face amount is $5 million with the LTC rider. The LTC rider is not considered long-term care insurance in some states. When the death benefit is accelerated for long-term care expenses, the death benefit is reduced dollar for dollar, and the cash value is reduced proportionally. The policy account value is also reduced proportionally. There are additional costs associated with this rider.
