Paying the target premium amount will guarantee coverage for the selected target coverage period (20-year, 30-year, To age 85, or To age 100) as long as your target premiums are paid on time and no loans or withdrawals are taken.
You can decide how much premium to pay per month within certain limits, as long as there’s enough account value to pay for the monthly insurance and administrative charges.
Value That Grows
Depending on the premium you pay, your policy may accumulate account value that you can borrow from to supplement your retirement income, pay for a child’s education, or other needs1.
1 Withdrawals or loans from the certificate may have tax consequences. You should consult your tax advisor. Withdrawals are not subject to taxation up to the amount paid into the certificate (cost basis). If the certificate is a Modified Endowment Contract, loans and/or withdrawals will be taxable to the extent of gain and are subject to a 10% tax penalty.
Loans and/or withdrawals will also reduce the net surrender value and loans may reduce the death benefit. Taking a loan could have adverse tax consequences if the certificate terminates before the insured’s death.
