Genworth

  • In-Force Rate Action - GA, MO, OK. As part of the strategy for our long-term care insurance business, we continue pursuing initiatives to improve the risk and profitability profile of our business, including premium increases on our in-force policies, as needed. In September 2013, we announced our intention to seek premium increases on certain Privileged Choice® and Classic Select® policies sold between 2003 and 2012. Subsequent to that announcement, we received approval for, and implemented, a 10.00% premium increase in Georgia. At the time, a larger increase was justified, based on projected experience, but rate stability requirements prevented us from requesting the fully justified amount. In 2016, we began requesting the full amount in states that previously allowed our 2013 ask. Georgia, Missouri, and Oklahoma have now allowed our requested increase, and the details of the implementation of this premium change are described in PDFs available at the link above.

Lincoln Financial

  • Now Available – Lincoln VULONE (2014) – New Versions of Riders. Optimal No-Lapse Enhancement (ONE) Rider Effective August 8, 2016, there is a new version of the ONE Rider for use on Lincoln VULONE (2014) which is consistent with the Allocation Requirements language in Lincoln SVULONE (2016). To address potential equity volatility exposure, the new ONE Rider language states that Lincoln reserves the right to establish future investment restrictions in the form of maximum or minimum percentages of certain subaccounts as described in the prospectus. It is important to note that Lincoln is not currently imposing these restrictions on either Lincoln VULONE (2014) or Lincoln SVULONE (2016) and there are no benefit, pricing or compensation changes related to the new version of the ONE Rider.
