Given the industry’s historically low interest rate environment, Lincoln is making prudent and responsible pricing adjustments.
Effective June 15, 2020, Lincoln Financial will implement pricing increases to all products in the Lincoln MoneyGuard solutions suite. Adjustments on flex-pay designs will see a pricing increase of approximately 15%. Single-pay designs will see a pricing increase of approximately 20%.
Additionally, Return of Premium (ROP) on Lincoln MoneyGuard® II in California is being updated to bring consistency across the MoneyGuard product suite. The Basic ROP option will be 70%. The Vested ROP option will begin at 70% and grade up to 100% over six years.
It is important to note that no changes will be made to the contract language, forms, compensation or benefits provided.
For applications to qualify for the current pricing, a projection of values and the completed application Part 1 must be signed, dates and received in good order by Lincoln’s home office by Friday, June 26, 2020.
All pending business must be issued, or 1035 exchanges initiated (where applicable), on or before August 28, 2020.
