TransEliteSM goes beyond traditional life insurance

New universal life insurance from Transamerica

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Feb. 2, 2015) – As people live longer and save less, the need for financial protection increases. Working to bring employers and employees the benefits they need, Transamerica launches TransEliteSM – life insurance with living benefits.

Similar to traditional life insurance, TransEliteSM can also be used for final expenses, a survivor's college tuition, a survivor's living expenses, or as an inheritance for beneficiaries. But that's where TransEliteSM stops being traditional and goes beyond.

If the insured is diagnosed with a terminal illness, a portion of the policy's death benefit can be used to provide some financial relief. In the event the insured is laid off, the policy's monthly deductions can be waived for up to six months. And, because of its potential to accumulate cash value, loan and withdrawal options are available.

"Life insurance shouldn't be offered as one-size-fits-all policies," said John Stanley, chief marketing officer of Transamerica Employee Benefits. "At Transamerica, we provide employers customizable options to meet the individual needs of each employee."

In keeping up with the changing needs of the workforce, employers can offer employees $10,000 up to $500,000 of benefit without requiring physical exams or blood tests. And they can adjust the benefit amount at any time.

Using TransEliteSM to assist with current and long-term financial protection of employees can make a good benefits package a great one – at no expense to the employer.
