LINCOLN MONEYGUARD® RESERVE PLUS
Why choose Lincoln MoneyGuard® Reserve Plus?
Like many people, you want to help protect your retirement savings from health-related expenses, such as long-term care. With Lincoln MoneyGuard® Reserve Plus you have the flexibility to fit your financial plan. This universal life insurance with optional long-term care benefit riders1 gives you a choice of payment options, from a single premium to payments spread out over 3, 5, 7 or 10 years.
Unlike traditional long-term care insurance, your policy costs are set at issue and will never increase. Because the policy offers a choice of premium payments, you have the option to choose how you pay for your coverage. Your policy provides benefits, — even if you never need long-term care, provided all planned premiums are paid.
You've got benefits
If you need long-term care
You can receive income tax-free reimbursements for qualified long-term care expenses. 2 There's no deductible or waiting period. This can make a real difference in your total out-of-pocket costs for qualified long-term care expenses.
If you don't need long-term care
Your policy provides an income tax-free death benefit. Your children, or loved ones, designated as beneficiaries, will receive a legacy. 3 The death benefit would be reduced by any loans, withdrawals and benefits paid.
If you change your mind
You have options. You can have a full return of your premium after year 5 (subject to the vesting schedule below, if surrendered before year 5), reduced by any loans, withdrawals, and benefits paid, provided all planned premiums are paid. 4
|Return of premium vesting schedule|
|Months 0—6 = 100%|
|Months 7—12 = 90%|
|Year 2 = 92%|
|Year 3 = 94%|
|Year 4 = 96%|
|Year 5 = 98%|
|Year 6 = 100%|
Stay in control with added advantages
When you're retired, the last thing you and your family want to deal with is making tough decisions about long-term care, such as deciding which assets to sell to pay the costs.
Take the next step toward your future with Lincoln Lincoln MoneyGuard® Reserve Plus.
- Add inflation protection options 1 to help keep pace with rising long-term care costs.
- Choose the care you want—even in the comfort of your home.

Lincoln Lincoln MoneyGuard® Reserve Plus is a universal life insurance policy with a Convalescent Care Benefits Rider* (CCBR) that accelerates the specified amount of death benefit to pay for covered long-term care expenses. An Extension of Benefits Rider* (EOBR) is available to continue long-term care benefit payments after the entire specified amount of death benefit has been paid. The Enhanced Surrender Value Endorsement (ESVE) is included in the policy cost for all single premium policies and for flexible premium policies for issue ages 35 — 69. Any additional surrender benefit provided will be adjusted by any loans/loan interest/loan repayments, withdrawals taken, or claim payments made, and it will have tax implications. The cost of riders will be deducted monthly from the policy cash value. The insurance policy and riders have limitations, exclusions, and/or reductions. Additionally, long-term care benefit riders may not cover all costs associated with long-term care costs incurred by the insured during the coverage period. All contract provisions, including limitations and exclusions, should be carefully reviewed by the owner.
