About the No-Lapse Guarantee.
Generally, the more premiums you pay, the longer the guarantee will last. The length of the guarantee will vary and may or may not keep your policy in effect for the length of time you want. The guarantee is based on several factors, including:
- The amount and timing of your premium payments.
- How often you pay premiums.
- Whether you take any policy loans or withdrawals.
Please note that, by paying only the premium required for the guarantee, you may be forgoing the potential to build tax-deferred cash value. While these policies offer the potential to build cash value, this is not their primary purpose.
Canceling your policy.
If you choose to cancel your policy within a certain number of years, you will incur a surrender charge. For UL Protector, these charges apply for the first 20 years; for SUL Protector, they apply for the first 19 years; for Essential UL, they apply for the first 14 years, but may apply for a shorter amount of time at older ages; and for UL Plus, they typically apply for the first 10 years, but may apply for a shorter amount of time at older ages. The surrender charges may reduce the policy's cash surrender value in early years. The policy's cash surrender value is the accumulated value less the surrender charges and any outstanding loan. Other charges include, but are not limited to, premium-based administrative charges and monthly charges, including the cost of insurance.
About accessing cash value.
Life insurance policy cash values are accessed through withdrawals and policy loans. Loans are charged interest; they are usually not taxable. Withdrawals are generally taxable to the extent they exceed basis in the policy. Loans that remain unpaid when the policy lapses or is surrendered while the insured is alive will be taxed immediately to the extent of gain in the policy. Unpaid loans and withdrawals reduce cash values and death benefits; they may also reduce the duration of the guarantee against lapse, which may lapse the policy and may have tax consequences. For policies that are Modified Endowment Contracts (MECs), distributions (including loans) are taxable to the extent of income in the policy; an additional 10% federal income-tax penalty may apply. Consult your tax advisor for advice about your own situation.
