Providing customers with lower cost products and living benefits to support them and their families

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa, June 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Midland National® Life Insurance Company (Midland National), a member of Sammons® Financial Group, Inc. (SFG) and one of America’s leading insurance companies, today announced new lower premiums for its Premier Term life insurance product. In addition to competitive rates, Premier Term also features an accelerated death benefit for critical, chronic, and terminal illnesses at no extra cost1, subject to eligibility requirements. Premier Term can help policyowners and their families with medical costs or bills due to a qualifying illness by providing access to a portion of the death benefit while the insured is still living.

“Life is unpredictable, so it’s important to prepare the best you can – especially when it comes to finances. Families who are going through the difficulty of losing a breadwinner can feel a little more at ease knowing that their Premier Term policy can help provide for their needs,” says Jerry Blair, chief distribution officer of SFG. “This product can help a family maintain their quality of life.”

Premier Term’s lower premiums build upon Midland National’s commitment to their customers, making the death benefit protection that only life insurance can provide even more affordable. Midland National offers 10, 15, 20, and 30-year level premium guarantee periods, depending on issue age. It’s also available with Midland National’s WriteAway® Accelerated Underwriting, which provides a faster and less invasive process for issuing a policy.

Premier Term provides the policyowner with the opportunity to convert to most of Midland National’s currently available permanent life insurance products without evidence of insurability. Conversion is allowed during the level premium period of the policy, or to age 75 (69 for 30-year), whichever is earlier. There are some restrictions based upon the age of the insured at policy issue, but the conversion period is never less than five years, regardless of issue age. “Premier Term’s generous conversion privilege creates additional opportunity for the policyholder. A person’s financial goals can be quite different years down the road, and Midland National can help,” says Blair.

Midland National is continually rated A+ by agencies including A.M. Best, Fitch and S&P Global Ratings, and they were named to Ward’s Top 50 list of top-performing life insurance companies for the past three years.
