The policy may not cover all of the costs associated with chronic or terminal illness. This product is generally not subject to health insurance requirements, and does not provide long-term care insurance subject to state long-term care insurance law. This product is not a state-approved Partnership for Long Term Care Program product, and is not a Medicare Supplement policy. Receipt of chronic or terminal illness benefit payments under this product may adversely affect eligibility for Medicaid or other government benefits or entitlements.

The accumulation value, surrender value, loan value, and death benefit will be reduced by a chronic or terminal illness benefit payment under this agreement.

Due to uncertainty in the tax law, chronic or terminal illness benefits paid from this policy may be taxable. Policy loans and withdrawals may create an adverse tax result in the event of lapse or policy surrender, and will reduce both the surrender value and death benefit. Please ensure that your clients consult a tax advisor regarding the chronic or terminal illness care benefit payments, or when taking a loan or withdrawal from a life insurance contract.

Guarantees are based on the claims paying ability of the issuing company.

Life insurance products contain fees, such as mortality and expense charges, and may contain restrictions, such as surrender periods. Please keep in mind that the primary reason to purchase a life insurance product is the death benefit.
