State Life Insurance Company is updating its Asset-Care whole life insurance policy.

The product is a medically underwritten whole life policy that gives buyers a vehicle for pre-paying long term care expenses, according to State Life, a unit of One America Financial Partners Inc., Indianapolis.

State Life will be paying producers more to sell the policy, the company says.
