The Gift of a Lifetime, a lasting connection to a child you love.

What if I told you that you could:

  1. Give your children or grandchildren a financial head start
  2. Teach the responsibility of protecting your loved ones; and
  3. Give a gift that children won’t outgrow.

Giving the gift of participating whole life insurance to a child may help you do all these things.

That is why we call it The Gift of a Lifetime.

Gifts & Cash Value

Gifts & Cash Value

Birthday Gifts1

You could purchase a policy during a child’s birth month. Then, you could select the Cash dividend option. Each year, if dividends are paid, the child would receive the check as a birthday gift.

Cash Value Access1

As adults, they can use it throughout their lives:

  • College graduation—Age 21
  • Wedding—Age 28
  • Home purchase—Age 32
  • Tax-free retirement incomeAge 65

Distributions should be made selectively 

1Distributions under the policy (including cash dividends and partial/full surrenders) are not subject to taxation up to the amount paid into the policy (cost basis). If the policy is a Modified Endowment Contract, policy loans and/or distributions are taxable to the extent of gain and are subject to a 10% tax penalty if the policyowner is under age 59 ½.

Access to cash values through borrowing or partial surrenders will reduce the policy's cash value and death benefit, increase the chance the policy will lapse, and may result in a tax liability if the policy terminates before the death of the insured.

The products and/or certain features may not be available in all states. State variations will apply.
