Many people wonder what the difference is between traditional Whole Life Insurance and Guaranteed Whole Life Insurance. It can help to compare the two types of whole life insurance to determine which type of life insurance is best for your particular situation. Whole life insurance is a type of permanent life insurance coverage that provides a guaranteed death benefit along with guaranteed** cash values. Part of each premium payment is applied to the policy's cash value account, which grows on a tax-deferred basis (based on current federal tax laws).

With some guaranteed life insurance policies, like Guaranteed Issue Whole Life Insurance from American General Life, they provide what is known as a graded death benefit. Within the first two years of policy issuance, if a natural death occurs, the benefit can range from 110%-120% of the actual premium paid. If an accidental death occurs, the benefit will be the face amount of the policy. And after the two years, the benefit will be the full face amount of the policy. This graded benefit guaranteed whole life insurance product may be an option for people who want the protection of permanent life insurance coverage, but due to possible health concerns may not qualify for any other permanent life insurance plan. If you have further questions, it is best to speak with an agent.
Important Consumer Disclosures Regarding Accelerated Benefit Riders
An Accelerated Death Benefit Rider (ABR) is not a replacement for Long Term Care Insurance (LTCI). It is a life insurance benefit that gives you the option to accelerate some of the death benefit in the event the insured meets the criteria for a qualifying event described in the policy. The rider does not provide long-term care insurance subject to California insurance law, is not a California Partnership for Long-Term Care program policy. The policy is not a Medicare supplement.
ABRs and LTCI provide different types of benefits. An ABR allows the insured to access a portion of the life insurance policy’s death benefit while living. ABR payments are unrestricted and may be used for any purpose. LTCI provides reimbursement for necessary care received due to the inability to perform activities of daily living or cognitive impairment. LTCI coverage may include reimbursement for the cost of a nursing home, assisted living, home health care, homemaker services, adult day care, hospice services or respite care for the primary caretaker and the benefits may be conditioned on certain requirements or meeting an elimination period or limited by type of service, the number of days or a maximum dollar limit. Some ABRs and all LTCI are conditioned upon the insured not being able to perform two or more of the activities of daily living or being cognitively impaired.
This ABR pays proceeds that are intended to qualify for favorable tax treatment under section 101(g) of the Internal Revenue Code. The federal, state, or local tax consequences resulting from payment of an ABR will depend on the specific facts and circumstances, and consequently advice and guidance should be obtained from a personal tax advisor prior to the receipt of any payments. ABR payments may affect eligibility for, or amounts of, Medicaid or other benefits provided by federal, state, or local government. Death benefits and policy values, such as cash values, premium payments and cost of insurance charges if applicable, will be reduced if an ABR payment is made. ABR payments may be limited by the contract or by outstanding policy loans.
