Universal Life

Universal Life insurance is permanent life insurance that offers flexibility and customization based on your financial goals. Under the policy’s terms, premium paid above the current cost of insurance (COI) is credited to the policy's cash value. Each month, the cash value is credited with interest, and the policy is debited by a COI charge, in addition to policy charges and fees which are drawn from the cash value (even if no premium is paid that month). Catholic Order of Foresters determines the interest credited to the account, but there is a contractual minimum rate. Withdrawals and loans will reduce the death benefit and may have tax implications. Consult a tax adviser regarding your particular situation.
