Life Insurance Policies

C. Flexible Premium Policies

3. Variable Universal Life – new section

Variable universal life is a combination of universal life and variable life. Like universal life, it provides the policyowner with flexible premiums and an adjustable death benefit. Like variable life, the policyowner rather than the insurer, decides where the net premiums (cash value) will be invested. Also, like variable life, the cash values are not guaranteed, and the death benefit is not fixed. The cash value and/or death benefit may increase or decrease over the life of the policy depending on the investment performance of the underlying sub-account. The death benefit, however, generally cannot decrease below the initial face amount of the policy. A producer must also be licensed for both securities and life insurance in order to sell variable universal life.

Insurance Regulation

B. State Regulation

3. Agent Regulation
