Midland National Releases Enhanced XL-EC4 Indexed Universal Life Insurance

Sioux Falls | August 4, 2015

Midland National recently enhanced their XL-EC4 product, part of the company's popular indexed universal life insurance (IUL) portfolio.

Updates include reduced policy expenses, as well as new living benefits in the form of accelerated death benefits for qualifying illnesses.

Accelerated death benefits are becoming an increasingly sought-after feature of life insurance because of the access to funds they provide in the event of a qualifying illness, subject to eligibility.

"By enhancing the living benefits available on this product and reducing the policy expenses, this already competitive product becomes an even more attractive solution for financial protection," said Jerry Blair, Vice President and Chief Distribution & Sales Officer.

Indexed universal life insurance is a form of permanent insurance

IUL provides an opportunity to grow cash value, based on the performance of stock market indices, without the risk of investing directly in the market. Popular features of IUL insurance include living benefits, like access to cash value in the form of policy loans, or access to the death benefit through the accelerated death benefit feature.
