Universal life insurance is a permanent life insurance policy that includes investments that grow over time.

Universal life insurance is a type of ‘whole’ life insurance that stays in effect throughout your life, no matter your age or health. It includes investments that can grow over time. This can help you save money for the future and provide you with cash when you need it most.

Most universal life policies include a policy fund, which can hold a variety of investment account choices to suit your needs. The investments in your policy can grow on a tax-deferred basis. This means you won’t have to pay tax on that investment growth until you withdraw money from the policy.

Depending on how well your investments perform, there are many ways you can use the policy fund to your advantage. You can use your policy fund to:

Pay off your premiums.

Buy more insurance coverage.

Save up for retirement.

Grow your savings for short- or long-term goals.

You can also take money out of the policy fund or borrow money from it for any reason, at any time.*
 

*Any money you withdraw or borrow can reduce the policy’s death benefit unless you repay the loan. The death benefit refers to the amount of money your beneficiaries receive after you die. So before taking money out, be sure there the remaining death benefit value will be enough to protect your beneficiaries.
