Flexible protection on your terms

Universal life insurance is a type of permanent life insurance that provides coverage for life, as long as premiums are paid.

It's made up of two parts: a guaranteed death benefit, which is money left to your loved ones, and a cash value component. The cash value earnings grow tax-deferred, meaning no tax will be due until they are withdrawn. It's flexibility on your terms.

What is universal life insurance?

Unlike term and whole life insurance, universal life provides an additional level of flexibility.

It allows policy owners to modify the amount and frequency of premium payments as long as there is sufficient cash value in the policy to cover monthly deductions.

When the insured dies, a death benefit is left to the named beneficiaries.

In addition to the death benefit, universal life insurance also contains a cash value. The cash value grows tax-deferred until funds are withdrawn.
