Accelerated Benefit Riders
“Accelerated benefits, also known as “living benefits,” are life insurance policy proceeds paid to the policyholder before he or she dies. The benefits may be provided in the policies themselves, but more often they are added by riders or attachments to new or existing policies.” states Alabama Department of Insurance website.
How do they work?
“The accelerated benefits option or rider in a life insurance policy provides that all, or a portion of, the policy’s proceeds will be paid to the insured upon the occurrence of specified events. These include such things as the diagnosis of a terminal illness. The need for long-term care or the onset of a medically incapacitating condition. The life insurance company will deduct the accelerated benefits payment from the death benefit it ultimately pays to the beneficiary.” states the Alabama Department of Insurance website.
