Grace Period

If you are unable to pay your premium on time, your policy will remain in-force (valid) for a grace period of 31 days. However, if the premium payment is not received by the end of the grace period, the policy will lapse. The life insurance policy may be reinstated following the grace period but evidence of insurability is required. All overdue payments must be paid with interest from their due dates to the reinstatement date.



Accidental Death Benefit Rider

  • Provides coverage that pays an additional death benefit, if your death results from an accident.
  • Applicants ages 18 – 60 are eligible for the rider, with coverage and premiums ending at age 65. Your additional coverage can range from $1,000 to $250,000. Coverage expires at age 65.
  • Maximum substandard rating: Table 4

Children’s Term Life Insurance Rider

  • Provides death benefit protection for all-natural, adopted, and stepchildren with ages ranging from as young as 15 days old through 18 years old—rather than purchasing individual policies for each child. The rider also covers future children, as young as 15 days old or the adoption date through age 18. Underwriting is required for each child at the time the rider is added to the policy.
  • After the covered children reach age 25, they can maintain life insurance coverage with an evidence-free conversion to a permanent life insurance policy from Protective Life for up to five times the amount of the Children’s Term Life Insurance Rider coverage.
  • Applicants ages 18 – 64 are eligible for the rider for their children. Coverage expires at the base insured’s age of 75.
  • Maximum substandard rating: Table 4 (base insured), Table 2 (child)

Income Provider Option Endorsement

  • Allows you to select a guaranteed monthly or annual income stream for the death benefit payout, of up to 30 years.
  • The initial lump-sum payment is also available to help cover immediate expenses.
  • Initial lump-sum and installment amounts will be adjusted when policy changes are made.
  • Available only at policy issue and at no additional cost.

Terminal Illness Accelerated Death Benefit Endorsement

  • Included in your policy at no extra charge, this benefit can accelerate up to 60% of the policy’s death benefit, or $1 million, whichever is less when death is expected within six months.
  • While there is no cost for this benefit, your death benefit is reduced by the amount paid plus accumulated interest at a rate specified in the endorsement. In addition, there is an administrative charge at the time a claim is made.

Waiver of Premium Rider

  • Waives premiums if you become disabled. There is a six-month waiting period before the waiver benefit takes effect.
  • Applicants ages 18 – 55 (not to exceed the issue age of base insured) are eligible for the rider. Coverage expires at age 65.
  • Maximum face amount: $3 Million Life Insurance Policy
  • Maximum substandard rating: Table 4
