What is 20-Year Level Term Insurance?

An easy way to round out your financial safety net.

Term coverage is the purest kind of life insurance, with no costly savings features. This term life insurance will provide premiums you can rely on that will not go up for a full 20 years and benefit options that will not go down while you are insured. You can renew coverage up to age 75, subject to all termination of coverage provisions.


Available to ACP members and spouses under age 55, the Member 20-Year Level Term Life Insurance helps you protect your family from the financial burdens of your or your spouse’s premature death. Your renewal is guaranteed until age 75, provided you pay premiums when due, remain a member of ACP, and the group policy remains in force.


You can select a coverage amount to help meet your needs, from $100,000 up to $2,000,000 (in $10,000 units). This insurance features "Super-Preferred" and "Preferred" Non-Smoker Rates and you can benefit from volume discounts when you apply for higher amounts of insurance. Plus, send no money until you are approved.

Eligibility

All ACP Members, Associates, Medical Students, Physician Affiliates, Non-Physician Affiliates, Fellows and Masters under age 55, may request up to $2,000,000 of coverage for themselves, their lawful spouse under age 55 and all unmarried dependent children ages 15 days to 23 years (25 if a full–time student). In order to become insured, individuals must provide satisfactory evidence of insurability and pay the required premium.

A dependent, who is also a member, is eligible for either member or dependent coverage, but not both. If both the member and spouse are covered as members, neither may insure the other as spouse and only one may insure any eligible children.


This coverage is available only for residents of the United States (except territories) and Puerto Rico.

Pay Less If You’re a Qualified Non–Smoker: Non–smokers meeting the highest underwriting standards may qualify for "Super-Preferred" (the Policy’s best) rates. Other non–smokers may qualify for "Preferred Non Smoker" (higher, but still very competitive) or "Non Smoker" rates. Smokers may only qualify for "Preferred Smoker" or "Smoker rates.


Save with Volume Discounts on Higher Amounts of Insurance: If you or your spouse becomes insured for coverage amounts of $250,000 through $999,999, you’ll receive a volume discount; and for amounts of $1,000,000 through $2,000,000 of coverage, you’ll receive an even bigger discount.

Exclusions

Benefits are paid for death from any cause, at anytime, anywhere in the world except suicide within 24 months from the issue date. The only amount payable will be a return of applicable contributions.
 
The validity of any amount of your life insurance which has been in force for two years during an insured's lifetime will not be contested except for insurance eligibility provisions and nonpayment of premium contributions.


Continuing Insurance After the 20–Year Term Ends: Premiums are guaranteed to remain level for the first 20 years of coverage. At the end of the 20–year period, you may reapply for 20–year level term rates then in effect for a subsequent 20–year period, provided the insured person is under age 55 and otherwise eligible. If your application for a subsequent 20–year term of guaranteed rates is approved, your premium contribution will be based on the insured person’s age, health and tobacco/nicotine use at the time coverage becomes effective and will be guaranteed for a new 20–year term.
If you and your spouse are not approved for a subsequent 20–year term of guaranteed rates, or you do not apply for a subsequent 20–year term, coverage will continue in force on a non–guaranteed rate basis, under which premium contributions increase as the insured ages.


Help Keep Your Cost Manageable: Two modes of payment are available to suit your budget: semiannual billing; and our semiannual or monthly Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) option (your cost would be approximately one–half or one–twelfth, respectively, the amount you calculate from the rate chart.)

Valuable Living Benefit Provision "Accelerated Death Benefit"

The "Accelerated Death Benefit" option is available to help terminally ill insureds during a difficult, and often financially challenging time. Under this provision you may request one advance payment equal to 50% of your (or an insured dependent’s) in force life insurance to be paid while the terminally ill person is still alive. The request must be made at least 12 months prior to the insured person’s scheduled coverage termination age and the amount of insurance payable after the insured’s death will be reduced by this payment. (Premium contributions will not be reduced.)


This money can be used to help cover high prescription drug costs, medical bills, outstanding debts, to help pay for experimental treatments, the cost of modifications to your home, or for a family vacation the choice is yours.


To qualify, a terminally ill insured must provide New York Life Insurance Company with proof of terminal illness and anticipated life expectancy (12 months or less), as well as any other necessary medical information requested. For additional details and limitations, please see the Certificate of Insurance.


Please note that receipt of Accelerated Death Benefits may affect your eligibility for public assistance programs and may be taxable. Prior to applying to receive such benefits, you should consult with the appropriate social services agency and seek the advice of a qualified tax advisor.

Ownership of Insurance: "Owner" means the person or entity with rights of ownership of this insurance as described in the Certificate of Insurance.

Any person who is not performing his/her normal daily activities as required will not become insured until the day he/she is performing such activities provided such date is within three months of the date insurance would have been effective, and the person is still eligible.


When Coverage Ends: Coverage will end when the insured person reaches age 75 (23 for children, or 25 for children who are full–time students) or earlier if: (a) premium contributions are not paid when due, (b) ACP membership ends, (c) the group policy is terminated or modified by the Policyholder to end insurance for the group of insureds to which the member belongs, and d) if the insured requests to terminate insurance. In addition, dependent coverage will terminate when your coverage ends, or when the dependent spouse or child ceases to be an eligible dependent. Upon your death, coverage for your insured dependents may continue as described in the Certificate of Insurance.
