North American Company Releases Enhanced Rapid Builder IUL® Indexed Universal Life Insurance

Chicago, IL | August 4, 2015
North American Company for Life and Health Insurance® recently announced enhancements made to the Rapid Builder IUL, part of the company's popular indexed universal life insurance (IUL) product line. Enhancements include the addition of index crediting options for potential cash value growth, 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 adding the new index crediting options and enhancing the living benefits available on this product, this already competitive product becomes an even more attractive solution for financial protection," said Garth A. Garlock, Senior Vice President & Chief Distribution Officer.

Indexed universal life insurance is a form of permanent insurance that provides an opportunity to accumulate 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.
