In the coastal part of Texas, we recently have certainly had our share of unexpected events with the appearance of Hurricane Harvey.  During that stressful time, many of us spent some time considering our insurance options.  We would like to offer some additional ideas for you to consider. 

The ultimate goal for most of us is to live a full life and have confidence that our personal and financial goals are possible.  While you may not have total control over your health or how long you live, you can take steps today to plan for a secure financial future.

A smart plan starts with having proper protection from the financial impact of an unexpected event such as death or illness. Too often, families are caught off-guard by these events and the emotional and financial toll is alarming.

Critical Illness

The Critical Illness rider gives you the option to accelerate a portion of your death benefit if you are diagnosed with a heart attack, stroke, cancer, renal failure, major organ transplant or ALS.

Chronic Illness

The Chronic Illness rider gives you the option to accelerate a portion of your death benefit early if you are certified by a Physician as being unable to perform at least two ADLs or activities of daily living (bathing, continence, dressing, eating, toileting, transferring) or if you require substantial supervision due to severe cognitive impairment. 

Terminal Illness

The Terminal Illness rider gives you the option to accelerate a portion of your death benefit if you are diagnosed as terminally ill with a life expectancy of one year or less.

Unemployment Waiver of Premium

If you become unemployed for a period of at least 4 weeks and are receiving state or federal unemployment benefits, this benefit waives six months of premium. 

Advance Up to 95% for Serious Illness

Three accelerated benefit riders will allow you to take a portion of your death benefit early in the event you become seriously ill.

  • You have the choice to accelerate up to 95% of your death benefit
  • Your current health condition and life expectancy determine the actual amount you can receive, which will be less than your accelerated amount
  • You have the ability to accept the offer or maintain your initial death benefit
  • If you accept the benefit offer, your future premiums are reduced based on your new lower death benefit.
