The right protection from the right company The beneficiary cannot change the death benefit payout schedule or elect a single lump sum after the insured’s death. And if the beneficiary dies before the end of the Installment Benefit Period, payments continue to their successor. The option only affects the way that the death benefit is paid out and does not remove any flexibility or features of your life insurance policy. It provides added peace of mind that your hard work and planning will continue to protect your loved ones even after you have passed.

You can take comfort in knowing that your coverage is backed by a company in business since 1895.

etermining how an income is replaced after a breadwinner passes away is extremely important. Most life insurance is purchased to provide a death benefit replacing lost income for a policyowner’s loved ones. Sometimes additional protection is needed to ensure the policy’s death benefit is customized to fit your individual needs.

Kansas City Life Insurance Company’s Income Assured Option (IAO) is a no cost enhancement that can provide an income stream as a death benefit. The option allows the policyowner to customize how the death benefit is paid out. At the time the option is added, the owner can select the amount, duration and frequency of the income payments and still maintain a lump sum benefit as well. Income stream payments can be made for a period of five to 30 years, either annually, semi-annually, quarterly or monthly. Not only does the option provide control, it also maximizes the policy’s total death benefit payout amount. To better understand how adding the option increases a policy’s total death benefit payout amount, take note of the following comparison.

Tom, age 45, applies for $1,000,000 of protection and decides to take advantage of the Income Assured Option by allocating $300,000 for his family’s immediate cash needs such as paying off their mortgage, car loans and other miscellaneous bills. The remaining death benefit will be used to provide a 20-year stream of income to help his surviving spouse continue to maintain her current standard of living. When added together, the total cumulative death benefit paid is $241,020 more than if the entire policy’s proceeds were paid out as a lump sum benefit. That’s a 24 percent increase! The option serves as an income replacement tool so Tom can be certain his beneficiary receives the death benefit payment according to the exact schedule selected at issue. If Tom’s situation and planning changes down the road, he can easily adjust the schedule and continue to customize his policy.
