Longer Lives May Need More Protection

People are living longer than ever before. While that is good news, clients need to be sure that they are prepared financially. It also means that they are more likely to be impacted by a chronic or terminal illness. In fact, 5 in 10 people who are age 65 will deal with a chronic illness or disability later in life¹ like Alzheimer’s disease, a serious stroke, or crippling arthritis.

Clients Have Financial and Emotional Needs

It’s a hard reality to face because it’s not simply the thought of being ill; it’s all the additional costs, hardships, and arrangements that come with it. A chronic or terminal illness can cost thousands of dollars each year, which can really take its toll if clients haven’t prepared for it. That may be why 80% of care at home is provided by unpaid caregivers, like family and friends.² Given the choice, most people wouldn't want to put that burden on their loved ones.

The BenefitAccess Rider is an optional rider for chronic or terminal illness that accelerates the life insurance death benefit when the insured is terminally ill or is chronically ill and otherwise meets the terms of the rider. It is not long Long-Term Care (LTC) insurance. Benefits received under the rider will reduce and may deplete the death benefit. Electing the BenefitAccess Riders results in an additional charge and underwriting requirements. Some benefit payments may be subject to a fee. Other terms and conditions apply and can vary by state. Clients should consult their tax and legal advisors.

For New York contracts: Please also note the rider is not subject to the minimum requirements of New York law, does not qualify for the New York State Long-Term Partnership Program, and is not a Medicare supplement policy. In addition, receiving accelerated death benefits may affect clients' eligibility for public assistance programs and such benefits may be taxable. Benefit payments may be made only if the payments are subject to favorable federal tax treatment. When determining whether the benefit payments will receive favorable tax treatment, the payment of benefits from all insurance policies must be considered. Benefit payments may be reduced or unavailable if they are expected to exceed the maximum amount eligible under Internal Revenue Code Section 101(g)(1) and all other applicable sections of federal law.

For some Connecticut contracts: To be eligible for chronic illness benefits, your client must also have been confined in a home or institution for at least 6 months previously. This confinement must have been illness related. It also must be expected to continue for life.

Your clients should consider the investment objectives, risk, and charges and expenses carefully before investing in the contract, and/or underlying portfolios. The prospectus, and, if available, the summary prospectus, contains this information as well as other important information. A copy of the prospectus(es) may be obtained by contacting your Prudential Life Wholesaler or from prudential.com. Your clients should read the prospectus carefully before investing.
