One of our carriers just introduced a new and free addition to their insurance policies for those that want the ultimate in flexibility, guarantee, and control°.

- During a 60-day window following the 20th policy anniversary, the surrender value will be the lesser of 100% of the premiums paid¹ or 30% of the lowest face amount².
- At the 25th policy anniversary or any policy year thereafter, the surrender value will be the lesser of 100% of premiums paid¹ or 35% of the lowest face amount².

Return of Face Amount scenario: Mark-age 60 purchases a $1million policy with an annual premium of $20,357. After 20 years, Mark suffers a critical illness and requires long term care. Knowing his family’s financial future is secure, he surrenders his policy, receives 30% of the face amount and uses $300,000 to pay for the cost of his long term care.
