What are living benefits in a life insurance policy and how does the rider or clause work?
Living benefits are all or a portion of the death benefits the policyholder may receive before death. Think of the term accelerated benefits, another term to refer to living benefits.
There are stipulations to receiving living benefits, such as, the policyholder will generally elect on receiving the death benefits early if they are terminally ill or are facing a catastrophic illness, whereas the policyholder’s health insurance will not, or does not continue to cover expenses accrued through the illness.
Will a living benefit rider benefit you and your family?
