Five (5) Year Term Life Insurance

5 Year Term (5YT) offers affordable, temporary life insurance protection. The initial premiums are guaranteed and remain level for the first five years. In years 6-10 premiums increase and are expected, but are not guaranteed, to remain level. Thereafter, premiums increase annually.

The coverage 5YT provides could help families and business owners safeguard their financial future. The proceeds can be use to help pay mortgages and other debts, fund a child’s college education, and help a family continue its standard of living.

Highlights

  • Pure life insurance protection.
  • A death benefit that is, in most instances, free from federal income tax.
  • Guaranteed renewable coverage through the expiry age.
  • The privilege to convert to a permanent policy that builds cash value.
  • The financial strength of New York Life.

The Uses of 5YT

Temporary Need for Protection – When coverage is needed for a relatively short period of time, 5YT can be ideal. A common use is when a mortgage or student loan is taken.

Limited Funds – In situations where life insurance is essential but dollars are scarce, 5YT could serve as a stop-gp. Young people starting their careers can choose 5YT, then convert to a permanent plan as their finances improve.

Supplemental Insurance – 5YT can be added as a rider to a permanent plan to help boost the death benefit.

Provide Other Coverage – Riders can be added to the policy to insure a spouse and/or children, parents, or business partners, guaranteeing their future insurability.

Fixed Account

Minimum guaranteed interest rate is 3%.

The current interest rate is set by NYLIAC and is subject to change daily. Interest rates will be set in advance and become effective no later than the next day. All amounts (including any applied to or transferred to the Fixed Account) receive the current interest rate. Different rates may apply to loaned and unloaned funds.

Limits apply to the maximum amount that can be transferred to and/or from the Fixed Account.

Loans

The maximum loan can never exceed 90% of the policy’s cash surrender value (cash value less surrender charges, any additional contract charge in the first Policy Year, unpaid loan principal, and accrued loan interest). Other limits and conditions apply. Loans will reduce the policy’s cash value and death benefit.

Partial Withdrawals

The minimum available for withdrawal is $500, which is deducted from the policy’s cash surrender value (cash value less any surrender charges, any additional contract charge in the first Policy Year, unpaid loan and accrued loan interest). A fee equal to the lessor of $25 or 2% of the amount withdraw will apply. Withdrawals will reduce the policy’s cash value and death benefit.
