  • 2 Cash values are accessed via loans and withdrawals. Unpaid loans and withdrawals reduce cash values and death benefits and may have tax consequences.
  • 3 Subject to the terms and conditions of the rider.
  • 4 The BenefitAccess Rider is an optional rider that accelerates the life insurance death benefit when the insured is terminally ill or is chronically ill as defined in the rider. It is not Long-Term Care (LTC) insurance. Benefits received under the rider will reduce and may deplete the death benefit. Electing the BenefitAccess Rider 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 only be made if the payments are subject to favorable tax treatment by the federal government. 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 favorable tax treatment.

For most Connecticut contracts: For most 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.
 

Life insurance is issued by The Prudential Insurance Company of America, Pruco Life Insurance Company (except in NY and/or NJ), and Pruco Life Insurance Company of New Jersey (in NY and/or NJ). All are Prudential Financial companies located in Newark, NJ.
