Complete Coverage, Renewable to Age 70
Benefits are payable in the event of death from any cause, except suicide during the first 2 years, anywhere in the world.
Accelerated Death Benefit
This benefit is designed to help terminally ill insureds and their families during a difficult and often financially challenging time. Under this provision, a qualified terminally ill person may request one advance payment equal to 50% of their in force life insurance to be paid while that person is still alive.
This money is payable directly to the insured member and can be used to help cover high prescription drug costs, medical bills, outstanding debts, experimental treatments, modifications to your home, or even a family vacation—it's up to you.
To qualify, a terminally ill insured must provide the insurance company with proof of terminal illness and anticipated life expectancy (12 months or less), as well as any other medical information New York Life believes is necessary to confirm the person's status.
Please note that receipt of Accelerated Death Benefits may affect your eligibility for public assistance programs and may be taxable. Prior to applying to receive such benefits, you should consult a qualified tax advisor.
This benefit is not available to residents of Massachusetts
Premiums may be Waived
If you become totally disabled (as defined by the policy) before you reach age 60, no further premiums may be required so long as total disability continues or until policy termination at age 70. This benefit becomes effective after 4 consecutive months of total disability.
Under certain circumstances or reductions in coverage, as described in the Certificate of Insurance, the Group Term Life plan provides conversion privileges without medical evidence to an individual plan. Conversion is not available if premiums are being waived.
Choose Your Beneficiary
You may select any person(s), trust or legal entity as your beneficiary.
Exclusions and Limitations
If death is the result of suicide and/or attempt at suicide or intentionally injuring himself or herself; and occurs within the 24 months from the Issue Date; whether covered person is sane or insane. The only amount payable is a return of the applicable contributions. Also, If a person’s age, sex or any other data is misstated, the correct data will be used to determine if insurance is in force.
