The Companies of National Life Group Expand Suite of Living Benefits, Adds Alzheimer’s and a Fertility Journey Rider
Montpelier, VT - (January 30, 2023) The companies of National Life Group are expanding their suite of living benefits1, adding Alzheimer’s Disease and a new fertility journey rider beginning Jan. 28.
These expansions have the potential to support many, as more than 6.5 million Americans are estimated to be living with Alzheimer’s dementia2, and the average cost of one in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle is more than $12,0003.
Living Benefits are supplemental benefits that can be added to life insurance and are not suitable unless you also have a need for life insurance. Life insurance with living benefits could provide protection if you experience a qualifying terminal, chronic, critical illness, critical injury or a diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease or Lewy Body Dementia4.
“We take our mission of bringing peace of mind to our policyholders seriously,” National Life Group Senior Vice President Ata Azarshahi said. “These riders add two more ways for our life insurance products to provide peace of mind while living. They will help with the unexpected all the way from the beginning to the end of life.”
