GTL Life Select is currently one of the best final expense products on the market today!
Life Select offers burial insurance coverage for final expenses with the option to receive home care benefits.
Those living benefits are provided if you become chronically ill.
So what exactly does it mean when you become chronically ill?
Well, a chronically ill person is someone unable to do at least two out of six activities of daily living such as:
- Transferring in and out of bed &
These are folks who generally need some type of home health care as they are unable to perform these activities without the help of a personal caregiver.
Someone can also be considered chronically ill if they need to be supervised to protect their health and safety because they have a cognitive impairment such as Alzheimer’s or Dementia.
Now I believe many of us know someone directly or indirectly who became chronically ill due to a stroke, Dementia, Parkinson’s disease, etc.
As a matter of fact, approximately 70% of people turning age 65 can expect to receive some form of long-term care during their lives. This is according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
That being said, if we are living longer and some of us may need assistance with our activities of daily living as we age, why not get a burial insurance that provides coverage for care?
Therefore, consider GTL Life Select today! Get the final expense insurance policy that provides both final expense coverage and coverage for home care today!
Now let’s discuss how Life Select works.
How Does Guarantee Trust Life Select Work?
2-Year Graded Death Benefit
Life Select is a simple and easy to understand product. Life Select provides burial insurance coverage to cover final expenses and living benefits in the event you become chronically ill.
Now GTL Life Select has an expected acceptance rate of 85%-90%. That means there is a high expectancy that folks who apply for a policy will be accepted for coverage.
In order to have such a high expected acceptance rate, Life Select is offered as a 2 year graded death benefit policy.
Now a 2-year graded death benefit policy is a policy that does not pay 100% of the death benefit in the first two years unless death occurs by an accident.
So what happens if you pass away by health related causes in the first two years?
Well, if a health related death occurs in the first year of the policy, you will receive the 150% return of premium paid in the first year.
If a health related death occurs in the second year, you will get 50% of the face amount or death benefit.
In year 3 and onward, you will receive 100% of the face amount or death benefit.
Now the policy was designed this way for two reasons:
- It allows for affordable premiums &
- This policy design offers coverage to individuals who may have health issues or cannot receive coverage otherwise.
Life Select is also guaranteed renewable and rates are fixed for the life of the policy so long as you keep the policy. You will never have to worry about rate increases on your premium as long as the policy remains in-force and your premiums are paid.
Now let’s talk about one of the policies most exciting features, the living benefits for chronic illness.
Home Care Coverage – Chronic Illness Living Benefits (Accelerated Benefits)
Besides the death benefit, this policy can offer two types of living benefits (also called accelerated benefits). These benefits are the chronic illness benefit and the terminal illness benefit.
Let’s discuss the chronic illness benefit in detail.
Now once again, chronic illness is a physical or cognitive impairment expected to last 90 days or more. Such impairments result in an inability to perform 2 or more activities of daily living without the help of a personal caregiver.
In addition, a cognitive impairment may require the need for supervision to protect the health and safety of the impaired.
Now with Life Select, you can access or accelerate the death benefit of your burial insurance policy when you are chronically ill.
In such an event, you can either:
- Take a lump-sum distribution of your death benefit equal to 50% of the available death benefit OR
- You can take a monthly distribution of 1%-8% of the available death benefit.
So, for example, let’s say you choose option 1. If your death benefit is $50,000 and you become chronically ill, you can elect to have up to $25,000 (50% of your death benefit) distributed to you in a lump sum so you can use it for care!
On the other hand, you can elect a monthly distribution of up to 8% of the death benefit instead of the lump-sum death distribution. You’re even allowed change the monthly distribution amount up to one time as your needs require.
Therefore, Life Select offers you the needed flexibility to access the death benefit of your policy and use it for care if you become chronically ill.
In addition to all of this, Life Select policies offer access to a service called “Welthy.” Welthy offers care coordination services if you are chronically ill. You will also enjoy a 15% discount on monthly care coordination services to support you and your loved ones that may be caring for you as age at home.
Not to mention, if you qualify for an accelerated distribution of benefits due to chronic illness, your premiums are waived!
So, with Guarantee Trust’s Life Select, if you become chronically ill, you have options!
Now in keep in mind, in order to receive chronic illness benefits, there is a waiting period of 90 calendar days before your accelerated benefits will begin.
Also, all accelerated benefits (both chronic illness and terminal illness benefits) are capped at 90% of the available death benefit.
This was designed to preserve 10% of the face amount to serve as a residual benefit for the beneficiaries, basically to help cover funeral expenses, burial costs, etc.
Now let’s take a look at the the Terminal Illness Living Benefit.
Terminal Illness Living Benefits (Accelerated Benefits)
Guarantee Trust’s Life Select also offers terminal illness benefits. Life Select accelerates the death benefit if you have a life expectancy of 24 months or less. In this situation you can receive 25%, 50%, or 75% of the available death benefit.
If you initially accelerate 25% or 50% of the available death benefit, you can make a second or third election to ultimately accelerate the death benefit up to 75%.
As with the chronic illness living benefits, if you qualify for an accelerated distribution due to terminal illness premiums are waived.
Again, all accelerated benefits are capped at 90% of the available death benefit to leave a 10% residual benefit for your beneficiaries.
