Lincoln

  • Now Available – Lincoln MoneyGuard Fixed Advantage. We’re excited to announce our newest addition to the Lincoln MoneyGuard solutions product portfolio, Lincoln MoneyGuard Fixed AdvantageSM, is available effective May 16, pending state approval. MoneyGuard Fixed AdvantageSM is a universal life insurance policy with a long-term care rider that preserves the core design features of our current MoneyGuard Universal Life product. Following a transition period, MoneyGuard Fixed AdvantageSM will replace Lincoln MoneyGuard® III in approved states. With the launch of MoneyGuard Fixed AdvantageSM, we’re excited to introduce the new Benefit Transfer Rider (BTR) that is automatically included with all MoneyGuard Fixed AdvantageSM policies, at no additional cost. This innovative rider provides the opportunity to enhance an existing policy’s long-term care and death benefits through the utilization of death claim proceeds from a separate policy at a rate that will always be greater than the amount being transferred.
