The Leader in Indexed Universal Life Insurance Announces Two New Products

February 27, 2019

ALISO VIEJO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 27, 2019--Today, Pacific Life Insurance Company (Pacific Life) announced two new indexed universal life insurance (IUL) products: Pacific Discovery Xelerator IUL 2 (PDX IUL 2) and Pacific Indexed Accumulator 6 (PIA 6). 1

Both life insurance products continue in the tradition of providing flexible death benefit protection for individuals and businesses. PDX IUL 2 emphasizes long-term cash value potential and may be helpful for high-income clients seeking death benefit protection and supplemental retirement income potential through tax-free 2 policy loans and withdrawals. PIA 6, on the other hand, focuses on higher cash surrender values in the policy’s early years and may be beneficial in certain scenarios like premium financing and corporate-sponsored life insurance plans.

“These products represent our ongoing commitment to innovation in IUL,” said John O’Donnell, vice president of marketing and product development for the Life Insurance Division of Pacific Life. “Two years ago, we launched Pacific Discovery Xelerator IUL, 3 the #1 selling IUL for the last two years in a row. 4 Now, we’re giving clients even more choices for a greater range of policy potential.”

Among the policies’ new features is an Enhanced Performance Factor Rider, which offers clients a choice among three levels of Performance Factors and their associated charges and allows clients to switch between these levels as frequently as annually. 5,6 According to O’Donnell, “The new rider allows clients to decide if they’re willing to pay higher charges in return for a higher Performance Factor, if they’d like something in between, or if they want to switch to no Performance Factor with no additional charge.”

In addition to the three Performance Factor rider designs, the new products offer 15 other riders 6 to help clients customize a policy for their life insurance needs. “We’ve also updated our illustration system to help clarify these choices,” says O’Donnell. Among the available illustration tools, the Policy Charges and Policy Credits reports show the interest credits and charges associated with each Enhanced Performance Factor Rider design. And financial professionals 7 can illustrate the impact of all three rider designs on policy values and share it with their clients using the “Making It Easier to Decide” report.

Protection. Flexibility. Support.

Just some of the ways Pacific Life is committed to building life insurance products that stand the test of time.
