Midland National Lowers Term Rates

Chicago, IL | July 23, 2015

Midland National® Life Insurance Company has announced a significant rate reduction on its full Premier Term product line, including the 10, 15, 20 and 30-year term products.1

"A driving component of our value proposition is to maintain a competitive product portfolio," said Jerry Blair, Vice President & Chief Distribution & Sales Officer. "These lower term rates – along with sought-after features like convertibility to permanent products, low minimum face amounts, and terminal illness coverage – make the Premier Term series an attractive and affordable option for financial protection."

Term life insurance is a popular form of life insurance due to its affordability and simplicity. It typically provides basic death benefit protection to help cover expenses like mortgages, loss of a primary household income earner, and can also be used for business protection, like funding buy-sell agreements.

Midland National's Premier Term products are available for 10, 15, 20, and 30-year terms with face amounts starting as low as $100,000 and ranging as high as needed, subject to underwriting limits. In addition to the convertibility2 feature, Premier Term automatically includes a living benefit for terminal illness, which allows access to up to 75% of the policy amount, up to $750,000, in the event of a terminal illness.3 Applications can be submitted electronically through Midland National's e-App, ExactApp®, making the entire process faster and simpler for both clients and agents.

"Part of what makes this product so attractive is the flexibility it provides for changing needs," said Blair. "As life changes, so do financial needs, which is why Premier Term was designed with the ability to convert to any of our individual permanent products available at the time of conversion."2
