HORSHAM, Pa., Sept. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company announces its new Accumulation Builder Choice SM Indexed Universal Life (IUL) product that offers individuals and small business owners death protection, plus dynamic ways to build policy cash value that can help create a world of possibilities.
Penn Mutual's financial strength continues to enable the development of products like Accumulation Builder Choice SM Indexed Universal Life. This new IUL product has several distinct advantages:
- Strong upside potential/downside protection to build policy cash value: the interest credited is based on the performance of a market index which allows policyholders to participate in market-based growth potential without the risk of directly participating in the stock market. Interest is credited annually up to a competitive cap, enabling upside market gains. If the market declines, the product allows guaranteed annual interest of at least 1 percent.
- Enhanced protection guarantee: a 30-year no-lapse guarantee on the death benefit is automatically included for those ages 55 and younger. This no-lapse guarantee stays in place as long as premiums paid less any withdrawals exceed the required premium and there are no policy loans.
- Diverse cash accumulation options: a choice of three indexed and two fixed accounts adds diversity and lets individuals or small business owners choose interest crediting strategies based on individual goals and preferences. The flexibility of accumulation options and the ability to transfer between accounts allow policyholders to choose what is right for them based on cash flow requirements, risk tolerance and financial goals.
"Penn Mutual's new Accumulation Builder Choice SM IUL gives individuals and small businesses death protection and cash accumulation options with protection against future market volatility," said Ray Caucci, Vice President, Product Management for The Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company. "This kind of permanent life insurance allows policyholders to diversify their growth potential and provides a number of new possibilities for needs such as enhancing retirement income, covering emergencies or pursuing a dream. Penn Mutual believes that permanent life insurance, like Accumulation Builder Choice SM IUL, at the center of a sound financial plan can help individuals and small business owners guarantee protection, accumulate cash value and unlock possibilities at each stage of life."
