Permanent protection for your family that provides long term growth and guaranteed cash values.

Coverage for your business that delivers protection and access to cash values.

Security for your retirement that develops early cash values, preserves your estate, or simply leaves a legacy for your family or a charity.

Eligible to receive annual policy dividends which can be used towards additional coverage.

Ensures lifelong insurance coverage with fixed premiums for 20 years, after which the policy becomes paid-up and protection remains constant.

Participating Life Insurance combines lifelong coverage with potential dividends. Here’s how it works:

  • Policy owners of Whole Life plans are eligible to receive annual dividend payments.
  • Your payments are pooled in a separate account called the participating account that is professionally managed.
  • Dividend amounts are based on the performance of the participating account and are not guaranteed.
  • These dividend values will be used to purchase additional life insurance coverage called Paid-up Additions.
  • Any Paid-up Additions are permanent and will never expire or require additional premiums.
  • The total cash value of your policy increases by any paid-up additional coverage.

Whole Life Participating plans are available to individuals between 0 and 80 years old. This makes it a great option:

If you are looking for permanent protection options for yourself, your children or your grandchildren.
