1 You can access your cash value through loans and withdrawals. In general, loans are charged interest; they are usually not taxable. If a policy lapses or is surrendered, the loan becomes immediately taxable to the extent of gain in your policy. Withdrawals are taxable only when you take more money out of the policy than you’ve paid in premiums. If your policy becomes a Modified Endowment Contract (MEC), different, less advantageous tax provisions apply. Loans and withdrawals may reduce or eliminate the death benefit payable to your beneficiaries.
Guarantees are based on the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company and do not apply to the underlying investment options.
