A large life insurer has come up with a new choice for life insurance beneficiaries.[@@]
The company, MetLife Inc., New York, has introduced the Guarantee Advantage Universal Life policy.
The policy comes with a guaranteed survivor income benefit option. The option gives beneficiaries a chance to receive all or a portion of the death benefit in the form of guaranteed monthly income. The option guarantees higher monthly lifetime income than beneficiaries would be eligible for otherwise, MetLife says.
