Policy Description LTG Ultra NY 15
The LTG Ultra series features level death benefit term plans with fully guaranteed level premiums for the first 10, 15, 20, or 30 years, with coverage to expire at age 95.
The policy may be converted to a level-premium, level death benefit permanent life insurance plan during the conversion period without evidence of insurability. The conversion period for LTG Ultra 10, LTG Ultra 15, LTG Ultra 20 and LTG Ultra 30 extends to the earlier of the end of the level-premium period or the insuredís attainment of age 75. Conversion to a permanent plan during the first 4 policy years will be given a credit toward the first annual premium of the new policy. The credit will be a percentage of the total cumulative term premiums paid according to the following schedule:
During the 1st policy year: 60%
During the 2nd policy year: 45%
During the 3rd policy year: 30%
During the 4th policy year: 15%

Each $1,000 of coverage costs $5.00 per year when the insured is ages 20-50 and $7.50 per year when the insured is ages 51-55. The cost is either $5.00 or $7.50 for each $1,000 of coverage regardless of the number of children covered.

Waiver of Premium Option (Additional Cost)

Accidental Death Benefit Option (Additional Cost)
Available to standard rated individuals only, this option pays a death benefit in addition to the death benefit of the base policy if such death resulted from certain accidental injuries.

Coverage expires on the policy anniversary nearest the insuredís 75th birthday.
