BOSTON, Feb. 11, 2015 – John Hancock Insurance today announced it has re-engineered its term life insurance, providing more consumers with an affordable solution to help with their big financial decisions. With significantly lower premiums in core market segments and face amounts beginning at $250,000, John Hancock Term is a cost-effective insurance solution to help consumers plan for the unexpected and protect their loved ones.
John Hancock Term continues to offer guaranteed protection for 10-, 15- or 20-year durations and includes a flexible conversion option allowing clients to convert to one of the company's permanent life policies should their needs change.
"According to a recent industry survey (LIMRA Facts about Life 2013), 86% of consumers who believe they need life insurance haven't purchased it because they think it's too expensive," said Michael Doughty, President, John Hancock Insurance. "We've redesigned our term insurance to help change these perceptions and make it financially easier for more consumers to take that important step toward protecting their future."
Coinciding with this product launch, John Hancock has added "UCheck" to its illustration system. UCheck is a new interactive tool to help producers quickly and easily estimate the risk class of their term life customers.
In addition to term life insurance, John Hancock offers a broad suite of diverse permanent insurance products including universal life insurance, indexed universal life insurance and variable universal life. "We are continually enhancing our portfolio to provide the financial protection and retirement solutions American families depend on," added Mr. Doughty.
