It provides affordable coverage for specified durations of 10, 15, 20 or 30 years, maximum issue ages five to 15 years higher than in typical term life products, and the benefit of premium payment flexibility available in universal life insurance. The product will be underwritten by Genworth Life Insurance Company and Genworth Life and Annuity Insurance Company.
Colony Term UL will be competitive with term insurance for face amounts below $1 million and remains competitive for face amounts up to $5 million.
