  • Accelerated Death Benefit

    This benefit is sometimes included in the primary policy and sometimes is contained in a separate rider. It provides for a portion of the death benefits to be collected in the event of specific medical conditions or terminal illnesses that require large medical expenses or confinement to a nursing home.
