Lincoln MoneyGuard ® II

Like many people, you want to help protect your retirement savings from health-related expenses, such as long-term care.

Planning ahead with Lincoln MoneyGuard® II gives you flexible options beginning at age 40. This universal life insurance with an optional long-term care benefit rider1 gives you a choice of premium payment options of one through 25* years.

Unlike traditional long-term care insurance, your policy costs are set at issue and will never increase provided your premiums are paid as planned and no loans or withdrawals are taken. Your policy provides benefits, even if you never need care, provided all total planned premiums are paid.

You've got benefits:


Benefits if you need care

You get more for your money because your policy provides income tax-free reimbursements for qualified long-term care expenses worth more than your premium payments.1 Once eligible, there's no deductible or waiting period, which could make a real difference in your total out-of-pocket costs for qualified long-term care expenses.


A benefit if you don't

Your policy provides an income tax-free death benefit. Your children, or other loved ones, designated as beneficiaries, will receive a legacy.2 The death benefit would be reduced by any loans, withdrawals and benefits paid.


Return of premium Options

You have options. You may choose to maximize your long-term care benefits. A return of 70% of your paid premiums is available once all total planned premiums are paid.3

Or you can maximize your return of premium — 100% return of premium is available after six years, subject to the vesting schedule below, provided all premiums are paid as planned; additional cost applies.3

Vesting schedule

  • Year 1: 70%
  • Year 2: 75%
  • Year 3: 80%
  • Year 4: 86%    
  • Year 5: 94%  
  • Year 6+: 100%

Stay in control with added advantages

Take the next step toward your future with Lincoln MoneyGuard® II.

  • Add inflation protection options4 to help keep pace with rising long-term care costs.
  • Feel confident if you live abroad because your policy includes international benefits.
  • Help protect your savings and your legacy.
