You can’t predict the future. So, it’s good to plan ahead. Our Whole Life insurance policy will help provide a foundation for your family after you’re gone.
Helping your family get through the most difficult time
Barbara remembered how difficult it was to arrange her mother’s funeral. She worried about the costs when all she wanted to do was be with her family. Barbara knew she didn’t want her children to face the same situation. Barbara’s Individual Whole Life policy put her mind at ease with the knowledge that there would be benefits to help her family when they need it the most.

How can an Individual Whole Life Insurance Policy help?
Our Individual Whole Life Insurance Policy helps to provide your family the support they need to pay for your final expenses.
- Help pay for funeral or cremation expenses
- Help protect your family’s nest egg
- Help contribute to your grandchild’s education
- Donate to charities of your choice
- Use it to help pay down outstanding mortgages or other loan balances
How does it work?
Our policies are flexible and can be tailored to your needs and budget.
- For a cost-effective monthly premium, you select a base policy with a maximum death benefit amount of $2,000 to $25,000.2
- Policies can be issued from ages from 50 – 85 and can include coverage for you and your spouse.
- Our Individual Whole Life Policy accumulates a cash value, starting in the third year, that can be accessed by either a policy loan or cash surrender.
- For an additional premium, you can choose to add an Accidental Death Benefit to Age 100 Rider. Availability may vary by state.
- Guaranteed premiums - your premiums will not increase.
- Both you and your spouse may apply for policies to qualify for a 5% spousal premium discount.4
Two benefit plans
Our Level Benefit Plan will pay the full death benefit amount chosen3 to your beneficiary upon your death. Our Terminal Illness Accelerated Benefit Rider is automatically included in this plan, at no additional charge, so that if you are diagnosed with a terminal illness, you can have additional funds to help with medical expenses or financial needs.
We offer the Modified Benefit Plan for those who do not qualify for coverage under the Level Benefit Plan. This Modified Benefit Plan has adjusted levels of coverage for the first two years of the life of the policy.
Compare the coverage for both benefit plans:
|Loss of life from...||Level Benefit Plan|
Death Benefit Amount
|Modified Benefit Plan
Death Benefit Amount
|Non-accidental death within first two years of coverage||100% of benefit amount||110% of premium paid|
|Non-accidental death after being covered for two or more years||100% of benefit amount||100% of benefit amount|
|Accidental death while covered||100% of benefit amount||100% of benefit amount|
