"The Good And The Bad Of The #1 Trend In The Life Insurance Industry:
Chronic Illness Riders"
What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You And Your Clients
Join this session to learn about the following from Ramona:
- How living benefit solutions (Hybrids, Chronic illness, Critical Illness, and LTC riders) have revolutionized the life insurance industry and have grown to become the #1 trend in the last 15 yrs (In 2019, per LIMRA, these account for 30% of all individual life premiums)
- LTC Life insurance solutions continuum: Understanding the Differences (some offer rich benefits and are deemed qualified LTC with ability to extend beyond the death benefit, some are riders on life insurance with the potential to only accelerate a fraction of the death benefit)
- Difference between LTC riders and Chronic Illness Riders
- Difference between Chronic Illness riders and Critical Illness riders
- Difference between Chronic Illness riders with monthly charges vs Chronic Illness riders with charge and benefit amount determined at acceleration
- Risks: (a) pending precedent setting litigation (b) lack of regulations and no agreed upon standardizations on disclosure from insurers (c) naming convention
- Teach them how to fish: How to know what you already sold and what you are currently selling?
- Moving forward - Best practices for insurers and insurance professionals
- (a) illustrations should reflect how widely accelerated benefits can vary ($) based on age and severity of condition (b) need fair & balanced examples in advisor/consumer literature that are not cherry picked to maximize payouts (c) disclosure of pertinent non-guaranteed elements such as: the right for insurer to reduce benefit amount or the requirement for the condition to be permanent or the fact that only facility care is covered
- Important: All the riders are Good riders. The problem isn’t the riders. The problem is - are we adequately disclosing how they work?
