What is the Chronic Care Benefit?2

You can accelerate a portion of your life insurance death benefit if you become certified as having a chronic illness after the certificate is in effect. It can be used to help with the financial strain that often comes with a chronic illness. And if you don’t use the benefit, you don’t pay for it. But if you do need it, a charge is deducted from the payout so there are no out-of-pocket costs.3

The Chronic Care benefit protects You and your Family

  • It covers your spouse or partner and
          dependents if they have their own
          certificate.

You can spend this money any way you'd like. Use it to:

  • Pay for additional medical care
  • Hire in-home care
  • Make home modifications
  • Pay for transportation to medical
          appointments

1 Dividends are not guaranteed. The certificate is eligible to receive dividends beginning on the second anniversary.

2 The insured must be diagnosed by a qualified medical practitioner as having a chronic illness. Being chronically ill in accordance with the certificate is generally defined as being unable to perform, without substantial assistance from another individual, at least two activities of daily living (eating, toileting, transferring, bathing, dressing, and continence) due to a loss of functional capacity or requiring substantial supervision to protect the individual from threats to health or safety due to severe cognitive impairment. The payment of the Chronic Care Benefit will reduce the certificate’s death benefit, any cash value and any loan values. The certificate’s premium payments will then be based on the reduced amount of insurance and the rates in effect for the policy. There is no premium required for this benefit, however, there is a fee if the provision is exercised.

The Chronic Care Benefit is an advance, or acceleration, of a portion of the death benefit payment and can be 75% of the sum of the policy face amount plus any paid-up additions, minus the present value-based fee, any due but unpaid premiums, and 75% of any policy debt. The amount is capped based on the per diem benefit permitted under IRC 7702 B(d)(4). The acceleration of the death benefit is intended to be tax advantaged under §101(g) of the Internal Revenue Code. The insured must be chronically ill, as defined in 26 USC 7702B. Certificate owners should seek tax advice from their tax advisor regarding an acceleration of their death benefit. Receipt of accelerated death benefits may be taxable.

Accelerating the payment of the certificate death benefit may affect eligibility for public assistance programs, including MEDICAID and SUPPLEMENTAL SECURITY INCOME (“SSI”). Contact the Medicaid Unit of the local Department of Public Welfare and the Social Security Administration Office for more information.

Please carefully read the accelerated death benefit disclosure provided at application. Restrictions and limitations will apply.
