Indexed Universal Life Insurance – IUL Permanent Insurance

What is Indexed Universal Life Insurance?

Indexed universal life insurance (IUL) is permanent life insurance that gives the potential for strong cash value accumulation. It offers death benefit protection with premium payments that may earn interest and grow the cash values of the policy, based partially on the increases of market indexes. One of the best benefits of indexed universal life insurance is that it offers protection even in a market that is performing poorly.

How is IUL Different from Other Permanent Life Insurance?

There are many different forms of universal life insurance, from the basic fixed-rate policies to variable options. The variable policies allow the policy holder to choose various equity accounts in which he or she can invest.

Indexed universal life insurance is different from other types of universal life insurance in the way that the interest is credited to the policy. IUL offers an option that is linked to the movement of a chosen stock market index over a period of time. With IUL, you don’t participate directly in the stock market, and the interest rate is never less than 0%. Your IUL policy won’t ever have a negative index crediting rate, even in a down market.

With IUL policies, policy holders are able to choose the percentage of their funds that they want to allocate to a fixed account or an equity index account. There is a wide variety of popular indexes to choose from, such as the Nasdaq 100, the S&P 500 and others.

Key Features of an Indexed Universal Life Policy:

  • Flexible options for paying premiums
  • Guaranteed to never have an interest rate that is lower than 0%
  • The cash value inside a IUL policy has growth potential
  • Greater growth potential than traditional universal life policies

Since indexed universal life insurance policies are considered a “hybrid” type of policy, they are usually very affordable and are considered to be safer than the average variable policy.
