No one wants to think about death, but if you avoid planning for the future, you could be forcing your family to abandon the lifestyle they are accustomed to.

The State Bar of Wisconsin Group Term Life Insurance Plan— with coverage issued by The Prudential Insurance Company of America (Prudential)—was designed for a simple purpose: to provide money to help keep your family’s hopes and dreams for the future on track following an untimely death. It’s money to help pay the mortgage, so they can continue to live in the family home; or to help with college expenses, so your children can get the education they deserve. It’s money to help ensure your family’s financial future is protected.

Accelerated Death Benefit option is a feature that is made available to group life insurance participants. It is not a health, nursing home, or long-term care insurance benefit and is not designed to eliminate the need for those types of insurance coverage. The death benefit is reduced by the amount of the accelerated death benefit paid. There is no administrative fee to accelerate benefits. Receipt of accelerated death benefits may affect eligibility for public assistance and may be taxable. The federal income tax treatment of payments made under this rider depends upon whether the insured is the recipient of the benefits and is considered terminally ill. You may wish to seek professional tax advice before exercising this option.

This policy provides ACCIDENT insurance only. It does NOT provide basic hospital, basic medical or major medical insurance as defined by the New York Department of Financial Services. IMPORTANT NOTICE – THIS POLICY DOES NOT PROVIDE COVERAGE FOR SICKNESS.
