Dear Sir or Madam:

We are sorry to learn about your recent loss and extend our condolences. To begin processing the claim for benefits under this policy, we need the following documentation and forms completed and returned by the beneficiary.

CLAIMANT’S STATEMENT: Note: Must be signed by the beneficiary and witnessed by a disinterested party or payment may be delayed. The Claimant’s Statement does not need to be notarized.

CERTIFIED COPY OF THE DEATH CERTIFICATE: for the insured that identifies both cause and

If any primary beneficiary pre-deceased the insured, we will require a photocopy of that beneficiary’s death certificate. Death certificates become part of the file and cannot be returned.

ORIGINAL INSURANCE POLICY: Note: Please be sure to mark the Claimant’s Statement where indicated if the policy is lost. If the claim is on a rider and the policy still provides coverage on additional individuals do NOT return the original policy. Please provide only a photocopy of the Policy Data Page and applicable insurance rider.

COPY OF THE OBITUARY: (if available).

BENEFICIARY NAME CHANGE: Note: If the beneficiary’s name changed after the owner designated the beneficiary, please return documentation of the name change (Marriage Certificate, Divorce Decree, etc.)

Financial Access Account and Life Insurance

Disclosure Statement 11-077-1 (05/20)

The death of a spouse, parent, child, partner, or other loved one is a difficult time. In addition to the emotional stress present during the weeks, months, or years following a death, financial burdens may also arise. Life insurance is intended to assist with these financial burdens. While life insurance policies provide for a single payment of the death benefit, policies may also offer other payout options that are intended to fit your needs and those of you family. The following information describes the Financial Access Account we are offering you as an option to a single payment.

What is the Financial Access Account?

The Financial Access Account (FAA) is a temporary repository of funds available to any beneficiary entitled to receive benefits of $5,000 or more. The account’s function is to give you, the beneficiary, the time you need to consider all of the financial options available. The payment of the full benefit due under the policy will be accomplished by delivery of a “checkbook” of drafts which are similar to checks by different in some respects. You can write them just as you would checks. The use of the Financial Access Account provided you the flexibility to make the right decision regarding your long-term financial needs while earning interest on the life insurance proceeds.

How does the Financial Access Account work? Your FAA is a draft account which is maintained by Northern Trust Bank. A draft account is similar to a checking account, and earns interest. However, instead of checks, you will receive a book of drafts. You write as a many drafts as you like in the same manner as you would write checks when you need to access your money. Our obligation to pay the total policy or contract proceeds is satisfied by depositing the total proceeds in the FAA. Once payment is made to you via the FAA, you will have immediate access to the entire amount, plus any accumulated interest. When your draft is presented for payment, it is paid through Northern Trust Bank. Please check with your financial institution on any potential delays in accessing the funds once the draft(s) has been presented.

Are there minimum draft requirements?

Yes, each draft must be a minimum of $250. You may keep your FAA open as long as you like. The only requirement is that you maintain a minimum account balance of $250. If the account balance falls below $250, we will send you a check for the remaining proceeds, plus all accrued interest, within 45 days of the account closure.

Can I write one draft to access the entire amount? Yes. One draft may be written at any time to access the entire amount of the FAA, including interest.

Are my funds guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC)?

FAA funds are held in our general account and are not guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), but are guaranteed by State Guaranty Associations. State Guaranty Association coverage limits vary by state.

Is the interest earned on my FAA taxable?

The interest you earn on your FAA may be subject to income taxation. We recommend you consult a tax, investment, or other financial advisor regarding tax liability.

What fees are charged on the FAA?

Your FAA has on charges for drafts or monthly service charges. However, your account will be charged the following fees for each of the particular services described below:

$10.00 fee for any draft returned unpaid;

$12.00 fee for each stop payment order;

$2.00 fee for a copy of any draft or statement.

We reserve the right to change these fees at any time. In addition, we may derive income, in addition to any fess charged on the account, from the total gains received on the investment of the balance of funds in the FAA.

How frequently will I receive statements?

Each month that there is activity on your account other than the crediting of interest; you will receive a monthly statement. Otherwise, you will receive quarterly account statement showing the current balance, the interest credited, the drafts written, and any other account activity.

How is interest calculated?

The interest rate currently being paid on FAAs is 0.25%. Interest is earned on your FAA from the date it is established until the date drafts are cleared. Interest is compounded daily and is credited to your account monthly. Interest is based on the balance in your FAA at the end of each day. The guaranteed minimum interest rate is 0%. Interest rates are reviewed by the Company on a regular basis and are set at the Company’s discretion.

What happens if my FAA becomes inactive?

If your account has not had any activity, such as a withdrawal or affirmative contact, within a two-year period, we will contact you to confirm your interest in maintaining this account. If we are unable to contact you, or you do not respond, we will proceed according to the unclaimed property laws in your state.

Are the available settlement options preserved until the entire balance of FAA is withdrawn?

All settlement options under the original policy are preserved until the entire balance is withdrawn or the balance drops below the company’s’ minimum balance requirement. Settlement options may include one or more of the following:

Lump sum – through this option, you would receive the entire proceeds in one payment.

Life only – through this option, proceeds plus interest are paid in installments as long as you are living.

Payments cease at your death.

Life income with a period certain – through this option, proceeds, plus interest, are paid in installments as long as you are living. If you die within the period certain you selected, we will continue payments to your beneficiary until the time period selected is concluded.

Installment payout for a fixed amount or period – through this option, you may choose to receive either a fixed settlement amount, or a settlement amount for a fixed period of time.

Interest only payout – through this option, proceeds are left with the insurance company and you will receive interest payment which the insurer will pay you on a periodic basis. Proceeds will be paid at the end of the period selected.
