New Premium Limits for Certain Life Insurance Products

Protective Life is committed to serving our customers and providing valuable products. Due to the current interest rate environment, and particularly the decrease in yields over the past few weeks we find it necessary to implement new premium limits for certain products.

Protecting Retirement Income from the Reality of an Early Loss

Product Training to Keep Your Business on Track

As a reminder, the new Suitability and Best Interests in Life Insurance and Annuity Transactions regulation, formerly known as “New York Insurance Regulation 187”, goes into effect for life insurance February 1, 2020. Product-specific training is required prior to the solicitation or sale of Protective Life and Annuity Insurance Company’s products.

Updated ExtendCareSM Per Diem

Don’t forget! The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recently announced upcoming changes to the per diem limitations for periodic payments received under qualified long-term care insurance policies and certain life insurance policies which offer accelerated death benefits for chronic illness care.
