Lincoln LifeGuarantee ® SUL (2012)

Lincoln LifeGuarantee® SUL (2012) is a survivorship universal life policy that's payable on the second death and guaranteed to be there for your beneficiaries to provide estate liquidity, or a family or charitable legacy. Guarantees are backed by the claims-paying ability of the appropriate issuing company.

What can Lincoln LifeGuaranteee® SUL (2012) do for you?

  • Offers a powerful tool for estate planning that can provide a guaranteed death benefit to beneficiaries when the second of the two insureds dies
  • Offers guaranteed premiums
  • Can provide you with affordable, guaranteed lifetime insurance coverage

Coverage Protection Guarantee

The Coverage Protection Guarantee (CPG) is available by rider in most states but is included automatically at issue. It helps you protect what's most important to you by guaranteeing that your coverage will be there for life. Here's how:

During the CPG Period, the CPG guarantees that the policy will not lapse even if the cash surrender value is insufficient to cover the deductions. Any changes to the policy such as loans, partial withdrawals, changes in scheduled premiums, and adding riders may terminate the guarantee or reduce its duration. In most cases, policy owners may make additional payments to place the guarantee back into effect, but this will result in increased out-of-pocket costs. Policy owners may forego the advantage of building up a significant account value by paying only the premium required to keep the CPG in effect.

Choice and Flexibility

With Lincoln LifeGuarantee® SUL (2012), you can customize your policy by adjusting:

  • The amount of the guaranteed death benefit protection
  • The amount and frequency of premium payments
  • The length of the guarantee period

For people who are looking for cost-efficient protection Lincoln LifeGuarantee® SUL (2012) includes:

  • Death Benefit Option 1 (level face amount). Loans and withdrawals offset death benefits.
