Upon receipt of proof of a qualifying event, we will pay an accelerated benefit in a single sum. Should the qualifying event occur prior to the 91st day following the Date of Issue, the benefit paid would be 10% of the policy Face Amount. Should the qualifying event occur on or after the 91st day following the Date of Issue, the benefit would be equal to the full death benefit of the policy. This benefit is payable only one time and once paid the insurance provided under this rider will terminate, except for the 10% acceleration upon occurrence of the Coronary Artery Bypass Graft. If this benefit is paid, future acceleration of any other benefit is reduced proportionally.
2Accelerated Benefits Rider-Confined Care
If a licensed physician provides the company a written statement of the diagnosis of your medical condition and states that you are a full time permanent resident of a Nursing Home and will continue full time permanent residence in a Nursing Home until death, you may receive a fixed monthly payment equal to the lesser of 2.5% of the policy face amount or $5,000. The payment of the accelerated benefit will reduce the death benefit proceeds by the amount of the benefit paid. The cash value (if any), the amount available for loans (if any), and the premium for the policy will decrease in proportion to the amount of the benefit paid. Availability varies by state. See the rider for complete details.

An administrative fee of $150 will be assessed at the time of each acceleration. These requests can be made up to a maximum equaling 95% of the policy death benefit or a maximum amount of $150,000. The cash value (if any), the amount available for loans (if any), and the premium for the policy will decrease in proportion to the amount of the benefit paid.

The payment of the accelerated benefit will reduce the life insurance proceeds by the amount of the benefit paid.

The acceleration-of-life-insurance benefits offered under these riders may or may not qualify for favorable tax treatment under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. Whether such benefits qualify depends on factors such as your life expectancy at the time benefits are accelerated or whether you use the benefits to pay for necessary long term care expenses, such as nursing home care. If the acceleration-of-life-insurance benefits qualify for favorable tax treatment, the benefits will be excludable from your income and not subject to federal taxation. However, acceleration-of-life-insurance benefits payments may be taxable by your state. Tax laws relating to accelerationof-life-insurance benefits are complex. You are advised to consult with a qualified tax advisor about circumstances under which you could receive acceleration-of-life-insurance benefits excludable from income under federal law.
Receipt of acceleration-of-life-insurance benefits may affect your, your spouse's or your family’s eligibility for public assistance programs such as medical assistance (Medicaid), Aid to Families with Dependent Children (AFDC), supplementary social security income (SSI), drug assistance or other public assistance programs.
