SecureCare Universal Life Insurance includes the Acceleration for Long-Term Care Agreement. The Acceleration for Long-Term Care Agreement is a tax qualified long-term care agreement that covers care such as nursing care, home and community based care, and informal care as defined in this agreement. This agreement provides for the payment of a monthly benefit for qualified long-term care services. This agreement is intended to provide federally tax qualified long-term care insurance benefits under Section 7702B of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended. However, due to uncertainty in the tax law, benefits paid under this agreement may be taxable.
The death proceeds will be reduced by a long-term care or terminal illness benefit payment. Please consult a tax advisor regarding long-term care benefit payments, terminal illness benefit payments, or when taking a loan or withdrawal from a life insurance contract.
SecureCare may not cover all of the costs associated with long-term care or terminal illness the insured incurs. This product is generally not subject to health insurance requirements. This product is not a state-approved Partnership for Long Term Care Program product, and is not a Medicare Supplement policy.
