Nationwide’s enhanced No-Lapse Guarantee Universal Life solution lets clients customize policy to their needs

Advisors looking for flexible life insurance products now have more options

Columbus, OH - Advisors looking for flexible life insurance products that offer clients affordable, guaranteed protection that can be customized to meet their specific needs now have more options.

Nationwide announced today that Nationwide® No-Lapse Guarantee Universal Life (UL) II, a universal life product, now provides an optional return of premium feature that allows clients an access window to recover all or a portion of their premium should they no longer desire coverage.

With up-to-age 70 and up-to-age 120 coverage options, clients can dial in their specific coverage needs. They may wish to cover themselves up to typical retirement age, or for their entire life.

“Because the goal of this product is death benefit protection rather than accumulation, it’s more affordable than most other permanent products,” said Eric Henderson, senior vice president of Individual Products & Solutions for Nationwide Financial. “It also offers flexible premiums and coverage lengths that allow you to adjust the policy as your needs change.”

In nearly all states, the new No-Lapse Guarantee UL II product can be paired with Nationwide’s newest accelerated death benefit long-term care rider. This rider, through its cash indemnity payout design, was specifically crafted to offer flexibility of care to clients, including the ability to pay for informal care while staying in the comfort of their own home.

Tax Advantage – Income tax-free death benefit for your beneficiaries.

Premium Flexibility – Flexible premiums schedule to meet your needs with a choice of guaranteed periods.

Options to customize and manage your policy – Optional riders to customize your policy to fit your needs and an Automated Premium Monitor to help you manage your policy.

Be sure to choose a product that meets long-term life insurance needs, especially if personal situations change — for example, marriage, birth of a child or job promotion. Weigh the costs of the policy, and understand that life insurance has fees and charges associated with it that vary based on your decisions and characteristics including sex, health, age and tobacco use. Riders that customize a policy to fit individual needs usually carry an additional charge.
