The “Accelerated Death Benefit” option is available to help terminally ill insureds during a difficult, and often financially challenging time. Under this provision you may request one advance payment equal to 75%, but not more than $250,000, of a qualified terminally ill person’s in force life insurance to be paid while that person is still alive.
The request must be made at least 12 months prior to the insured person’s scheduled coverage termination age and the amount of insurance payable after the insured’s death will be reduced by this payment. (Premium contributions will not be reduced.) If a scheduled reduction in coverage will occur within one year of the date the Accelerated Death Benefit will be paid, the benefit payable will be 75% of the reduced coverage amount.
