Quality of Life…Insurance® offers protection,
accumulation potential and optionality
HOUSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 18, 2014--
American International Group, Inc. (NYSE: AIG) today announced the
launch of QoL Performer PlusSM, affordable universal life
insurance that can provide a guaranteed death benefit up to age 80. The
product also offers the opportunity for cash accumulation, as well as
of Life…Insurance accelerated benefit solution that can make
available needed cash if the policy holder suffers a qualifying illness
“QoL Performer Plus could be the first policy clients buy or the last,
because it is designed to help serve and protect Americans and their
families, no matter what the future brings,” said James A. Mallon,
President, Life Insurance, AIG Global Consumer Insurance. “We’ve
structured this product in consideration of consumers who are just
embarking on their financial journeys and need a product that can
efficiently adapt to changing needs throughout a lifetime, as well as
clients at middle age and beyond who appreciate guarantees, flexibility
and the opportunity to grow and access cash value for supplemental
retirement income or any other purpose.”
John Deremo, Executive Vice President and Chief Distribution Officer,
Life Insurance, AIG Financial Distributors, said of the products,
“Performer Plus can pay a portion of the base life insurance benefit if
the insured has a major heart attack, stroke, cancer or other qualifying
illness or condition, at no additional premium cost to the policy
holder. Clients can use the money to help cover the costs of treatment,
help recoup lost income, or help with other needs. It’s life insurance
you don’t have to die to use.”
The QoL Performer Plus policy pays currently competitive interest, with
guaranteed minimum interest crediting of 4 percent for the first five
years and 2.25 percent thereafter. Furthermore, with QoL Performer Plus,
policy holders have the potential to:
Change their coverage amount. After one year, a client can apply to
increase his or her coverage amount. If a client purchases an optional
rider, he or she has the guaranteed ability, at certain ages and life
events, to buy additional coverage. Clients can also decrease the
coverage amount (although surrender charges may apply).
Add term life coverage for their spouse. Fee and volume discounts can
help make this coverage affordable.
Add term life coverage for any purpose and for certain durations of 10
years or 15 - 35 years, subject to policy terms and conditions, to
help cover, for example, the cost of remaining years in a mortgage or
to help protect the cost of a college education for children.
Put extra dollars to work. During the first five policy years, premium
that the policy holder pays, over and above the cumulative monthly
benchmark premium, is placed as a protected value where it is
available during that time by means of surrender or loan, subject to
policy terms and conditions. Whether the money is being accumulated
for a short-term purpose or long-term goal, this may be an appropriate
liquidity solution for certain clients.
Build supplemental retirement income. Regularly funding one’s QoL
Performer Plus may help create the potential for significant
additional income for retirement.
