Securian Financial launches single premium term life insurance product for finance company market

ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Securian Financial has launched Access Term Life™, a single premium term life insurance product developed for distribution through consumer finance companies.

Access Term Life will be offered to finance company customers at the point of sale during loan closing. The product complements existing Securian Financial credit insurance coverages offered by finance companies that provide loan protection in the event of death, disability and unemployment.

A variety of terms and coverage amounts are available to fit the needs and budgets of finance company customers. Benefit proceeds are paid directly to the beneficiary of the borrower’s choice to be used how they wish, and customers who pay off their loans early still have coverage for the life of their policies. Access Term Life is a modified guaranteed issue product with limited health questions asked of applicants.

“Access Term Life offers underserved consumers the opportunity to purchase life insurance in a manner and at a price they can manage, giving them peace of mind knowing they can help provide their loved ones with financial security at a time when they may need it most,” said Pete Berlute, Securian Financial senior vice president of Affinity Solutions. “For finance companies, Access Term Life offers an additional source of non-interest income and the chance to differentiate themselves in the market by being among the first finance companies to offer term life insurance to underinsured customers.”

According to the 2023 Life Insurance Marketing and Research Association (LIMRA) Insurance Barometer Study, 101 million U.S. adults (7 in 10) reported needing life insurance, with 27 million reporting being underinsured and 74 million reporting having no life insurance at all. The need is highest among households earning under $50,000 annually—a large consumer segment served by finance companies, whose customers have lower income levels and lower credit scores.
