Lincoln Financial Introduces Innovative New Benefit Shift Rider Available with MoneyGuard Fixed AdvantageSM

Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE: LNC) today launched the next generation of Lincoln MoneyGuard® by introducing MoneyGuard Fixed BenefitSM, a universal life insurance policy with a long-term care rider. the MoneyGuard solutions suite helps address concerns of 87% of Americans surveyed who say having a long-term care solution would help them feel more confident about their financial future1.

“The MoneyGuard suite of solutions provides options so our customers have the freedom to choose what best suits their individual needs and circumstances,” said Heather Deichler, Senior Vice President, MoneyGuard Business Management. “Long-term care planning is more than having enough money to pay for care services. It’s about developing an overall strategy to better prepare for the emotional and financial decisions that come with a long-term care event. MoneyGuard Fixed BenefitSM gives clients more control over decisions that affect them and their family.”

MoneyGuard Fixed BenefitSM preserves the basic design features of the current MoneyGuard Universal Life and introduces the new Benefit Transfer Rider (BTR), automatically included at no additional cost. This innovative rider provides the ability for a beneficiary to enhance the long-term care and death benefits of their existing policy by leveraging death claim proceeds from another person’s policy. The increase in long-term care and death benefits will always be greater than the amount transferred to the contract.

To use the Benefit Transfer Rider, both the Insured and the Beneficiary must be policyholders with BTRs on both policies3 and the beneficiary is the insured under his own policy. If the conditions are met, beneficiaries can choose to:

  • take the full income of the tax-free death benefit2 or
  • use the full death benefit to purchase more benefits on their own policy or
  • take partial death benefit income tax-free and use the rest to buy more benefits on their own policy2

No additional subscription is required to transfer benefits and policy fees do not increase if benefits are enhanced through the rider. This rider can be used up to age 121.

The endorsement goes beyond married couples and can be used with couples, siblings, parents, estate planning, or anyone named as a beneficiary to help start important conversations about planning for healthcare expenses. long duration. These conversations are critically important – 82% of consumers surveyed say they would like to talk more about long-term care plans and options before they are needed1.

Additionally, Flexible Care Cash benefits will be extended to seven days a week (previously five), giving customers greater flexibility and access to cash for their informal care needs. Flexible Care Cash provides access to a cash benefit for care needs and allows the use of 50% of the maximum daily benefit per occurrence (up to the IRS daily limit). The cash benefit is payable without receipts and care can be provided by family members, including spouses. For days when formal care is used, reimbursement of up to 100% of the per diem is available.

“Long-term care events happen to loved ones, not just one person. We want to help Americans take control and protect their legacy with the flexibility to plan for their unique circumstances,” said Bill Nash, senior vice president, MoneyGuard Distribution. “As a leader in the hybrid long-term care market, with more than 30 years of experience providing long-term care solutions, Lincoln has remained committed to providing innovative solutions to meet the ever-changing needs from our customers.”

Lincoln is committed to investing in innovative product solutions, data, tools and technology that enhance the customer experience. Other recent examples of innovation include the launch of MoneyGuard Market Advantage™a enhanced digital claims experience and the Lincoln Concierge Care Coordination platform aimed at guiding clients and their families on how to plan for the long-term impacts of an event.

SPRINGFIELD — Today, U.S. Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) and U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH), co-chairs of the Senate Ukraine Caucus, along with U.S. Senators Jeanne Shaheen (D- NH) and Roger Wicker (R-MS), sent a letter to President Biden urging him to appoint a Ukraine Security Assistance Coordinator. In light of continued fighting in Ukraine, as the United States continues to send historic aid to assist Ukraine in its defense, senators believe a coordinator would help synchronize efforts across our government and to improve our response time in sending aid to Europe. .

“Even after their initial defeat, Russia’s ongoing military operations are an urgent call to reassess how the United States can quickly and creatively supply Ukraine with the defense items it needs to defend itself. . The Ukraine Security Assistance Coordinator’s primary mission would be to lead the interagency effort to assess Ukraine’s defense needs while dissolving overlapping areas of jurisdiction between the State Department and the Department of Defense. This individual would also serve as the primary liaison between the United States government and our allies and partners overseas on matters relating to the transfer of existing stockpiles and the assessment of partner capabilities, such as aircraft, heavy tanks and the sophisticated weapons that could be made available. to Ukraine, write the senators.

The full letter can be read here or below.

Dear President Biden:

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine is entering its seventh week after the Ukrainian Armed Forces successfully repelled the initial Russian campaign targeting kyiv in a bid to overthrow the government of President Zelenskyy. Recent reports on the repositioning of Russian Federation troops in Donbass indicate that this conflict is not over and that there will likely be much more fighting in the future, which will require our continued support to the armed forces. Ukrainians. In order to reinforce Ukraine’s victories on the battlefield and help it decisively defeat Russian aggressors, we must focus on improving how we synchronize our whole-of-government approach to arming Ukraine. . This effort requires someone to coordinate our efforts and we urge you to immediately appoint a Ukraine Security Assistance Coordinator for this purpose.

Even after their initial defeat, Russia’s ongoing military operations are an urgent call to reassess how the United States can quickly and creatively supply Ukraine with the defense items it needs to defend itself. The Ukraine Security Assistance Coordinator’s primary mission would be to lead the interagency effort to assess Ukraine’s defense needs while dissolving overlapping areas of jurisdiction between the State Department and the Department of Defense. This individual would also serve as the primary liaison between the United States government and our allies and partners overseas on matters relating to the transfer of existing stockpiles and the assessment of partner capabilities, such as aircraft, heavy tanks and the sophisticated weapons that could be made available. to Ukraine.

In addition, this coordinator could serve as a liaison with our national industrial partners who are called upon not only to ensure the constant flow of defense articles to Ukraine, but also to replenish American and allied stocks. Finally, the Ukraine Security Assistance Coordinator would develop and execute a whole-of-government response regarding the capabilities and capability needs of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, including any necessary updates to the Security Assistance Resource Plan. security, as required by section 1236 of the fiscal year 2021. National Defense Authorization Act (PL 116-283).

We commend your administration thus far for providing unprecedented levels of support to Ukraine and for ensuring that these needs are met quickly. We also recognize that more can be done, and the appointment of a Ukraine Security Assistance Coordinator would streamline the overall effort while increasing transparency. It is imperative that we continue to provide our Ukrainian partners with the defense equipment they need to successfully defend their freedom and their homeland against Russian invasion.

We appreciate your consideration of this request and look forward to continued engagement to ensure Ukraine has the tools and resources to win this war decisively.

Sincerely,

-30-
