John Hancock Insurance Launches Survivorship Indexed Universal Life Product

BOSTON, Sept. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- John Hancock Insurance has launched a survivorship indexed universal life insurance product—Protection SIUL.

This new product, a complement to its single life offering, Protection IUL, is designed to meet the needs of clients looking for survivorship protection with the potential for a higher return than a UL policy and less volatility than a VUL product.

John Hancock's Protection SIUL offers a straightforward, point-to-point crediting method that is linked to the performance of the S&P 500 , allowing clients to capture upside potential, while providing protection in down markets. The crediting rate will never be less than 0%.

In addition to its competitive premiums, cash value accumulation potential and lengthy no-lapse guarantee, Protection SIUL offers clients a dynamic solution to estate and legacy planning needs.

"The introduction of Protection SIUL reaffirms John Hancock's commitment to providing innovative solutions that offer alternatives to lifetime no-lapse guarantee products," said Michael Doughty, President, John Hancock Insurance. "With the addition of this new product, whether clients are concerned with low-cost death benefit protection, focused on accumulating cash values as a source of supplemental income or seeking competitive survivorship protection, John Hancock's IUL portfolio can meet their needs."
