American General Life Companies Launches Accelerated Access Solution

Life insurance policy holders who become diagnosed with a chronic illness can now access their policy's death benefits, income tax free (based on current tax laws), through a new, innovative rider offered by American General Life Companies (American General), a part of AIG. The Accelerated Access Solution(SM) is available on AG Secure Lifetime GUL(R) II, the highly flexible Guaranteed Universal Life Insurance issued by American General Life Insurance Company. The Accelerated Access Solution features flexible benefit payment options, including a unique payout methodology to help protect against inflation. The payout can be either 2% or 4% of the benefit amount per month, or the policy holder can choose to have the benefit amount set at the maximum Internal Revenue Service (IRS) allowable per diem at the time the benefit is exercised. The Accelerated Access Solution also offers affordable premiums that are fully guaranteed for the life of the contract, and a waiver of monthly premium that applies as long as the policy holder qualifies for benefits -- even if he or she chooses not to take the benefits. A policy holder can qualify for the accelerated access to benefits if a Licensed Health Care Practitioner certifies that for at least 90 days, the insured has been unable to perform, without substantial assistance from another person, at least two of the six Activities of Daily Living (bathing, continence, dressing, eating, toileting, transferring) or has suffered from a severe cognitive impairment (measured by clinical evidence and cognitive tests). A Licensed Healthcare Practitioner must also certify that the conditions are likely to be permanent. The Accelerated Access Solution on AG Secure Lifetime GUL II can be appropriate for consumers who know they need life insurance to protect them and their families; who have experienced a recent health care event with a family member or friend, and realize how expensive it can be; who realize that they need an additional financial safety net in the event of an unexpected chronic illness; and who are generally in good health but want options in the event their health deteriorates later in life. As with most products, some conditions and limitations apply, and a policy holder should consult a qualified tax advisor. However, the Accelerated Access Solution on Secure Lifetime GUL II can serve as a highly flexible solution for some of life's most pressing needs, helping consumers make the most of their budgets.

American General Introduces AG Secure Lifetime GUL(R) II

American General Life Companies announced AG Secure Lifetime GUL II, highly flexible Guaranteed Universal Life Insurance issued by American General Life Insurance Company and The United States Life Insurance Company in the City of New York. AG Secure Lifetime GUL II includes an integrated Enhanced Surrender Value Rider (a return of premium feature). It is now available with the new Lifestyle Income Solution(SM) that can turn a life insurance product into a guaranteed stream of retirement income. The Lifestyle Income Solution offers affordable protection against outliving retirement income. It provides the option to receive a portion of life insurance benefits, while consumers are still living, to help supplement other retirement income. An array of other optional riders is available with AG Secure Lifetime GUL II to help agents tailor solutions for specific client needs.

American General Life Companies Announces Elite Global Plus II, a Fixed Index Universal Life Insurance Product

American General Life Companies announced Elite Global Plus II, a fixed index universal life insurance (IUL) product that provides death benefit protection and the strongest accumulation potential of the carrier's current UL products, making it perfect for supplemental retirement funding and other future income stream needs. A replacement for American General Elite Global Plus, the new product offers an opportunity for growth in cash value accumulation through highly competitive interest-crediting methodologies based in part on the performance of three indices the S&P 500(R), the EURO STOXX 50(R) Index (Western Europe), and the Hang Seng Index (Hong Kong). Elite Global Plus II features a 5-Year Index Interest Account option that uses these three indices and over-weights the best-performing index while ignoring the poorest performing index when calculating index interest to be credited.
