Pacific Life Enhances Select Indexed Universal Life Insurance Products
by Providing Additional Policyowner Flexibility
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – October 18, 2022 – Pacific Life has added two new uncapped volatility control indexed accounts to select indexed universal life insurance (IUL) products. These indexed accounts are available on certain new and inforce policies and are tied to the BlackRock Endura® Index,1 which uses volatility controls to determine a daily mix of equities and short-term U.S. Treasuries to help navigate volatile markets.
Additionally, the Enhanced Performance Factor Rider2 (EPFR) is available to select products. The EPFR has the potential to enhance indexed interest credited to the policy in exchange for a monthly rider charge. The rider, which may be used along with eligible indexed accounts, also offers flexibility to change the rider design to help address a policyowner’s evolving needs.
“With these new options, customers have more choices to help them tailor their policy to meet their planning needs,” said Dawn Behnke, executive vice president of the Life Insurance Division, Pacific Life. “In keeping with Pacific Life’s tradition of providing value to its policyowners, these new indexed accounts are available to new and existing customers of select IUL products.”
A market leader in IUL sales for 13 years in a row,3 Pacific Life offers a suite of IUL products with flexibility to help meet a lifetime of needs.
“These latest IUL enhancements are just part of our ongoing commitment to product innovation,” said Stephan Mitchell, assistant vice president of product marketing, Pacific Life. “While the market’s ups and downs can’t be controlled, we continuously deliver products that stand the test of time.”
