Features and Options
Guaranteed, Single Premium or Fixed Level Premiums
Premiums are guaranteed not to increase even as you grow older or your health declines. The premium you pay today will be the same premium you pay in later years.
Guaranteed, Lifetime Coverage
When you purchase a whole life policy, you are helping to ensure insurance protection for your entire life. As long as premiums are paid and policy loans do not exceed the total cash value, your coverage cannot be terminated, even if you become uninsurable later in life.
Guaranteed, Tax-Deferred Cash Value Accumulation
Your policy is designed to gradually build cash value each year on a tax deferred basis. During your lifetime, the cash value can be accessed as a policy loan to help fund a major purchase, supplement your retirement income, or simply in times of emergency or a special need. Accessing your cash value will, however, reduce your death benefit.
In life insurance
Your policy may earn a dividend that can be used in the following ways:
Paid-Up AdditionsThis option allows you to increase insurance coverage by purchasing additional “paid-up” insurance.
Out of Pocket Premium ReductionThis option allows you to use any dividend to reduce your out of pocket premium.
Dividend AccumulationThis option allows you to leave any dividend you earn with Lafayette Life to earn interest.
CashThis option allows you to receive a check in the amount of any declared dividend.
Tailored Policy to Meet Your Needs
Everyone is different and therefore has different needs. That’s why Lafayette Life has created several supplemental riders that can be added to your policy to help meet those needs. Adding a rider to your policy may require additional premium.
