NEW YORK--April 19, 2006--A.I. Credit Corp., a member company of American International Group, Inc. (AIG), today announced it has enhanced its Loan for Life(SM) program, a mechanism used to finance existing life insurance premiums, to include policies previously financed by term lenders.

The new program, named Term Loan Rescue, allows life insurance producers who have sold life policies using a term premium finance loan to offer favorable renewal terms through A.I. Credit for their clients. Term Loan Rescue allows policyholders to maintain their current life insurance policy instead of selling it in the life settlement market and losing the insurance benefit, or if the client's current lender does not renew the loan, writing a check may have financial or gifting ramifications.

"We expect that a number of traditional and non-recourse premium finance loans that were administered over the past 10 years will be coming due in the near future," said Tom Yaeger, Executive Vice President of A.I. Credit Corp. " Refinancing with A.I. Credit allows clients to avoid unplanned financial and gifting consequences, while maintaining the value of their life insurance."
