John Hancock has a introduced a variable universal life insurance policy, Protection VUL. The policy can provide guaranteed death benefits up to age 100.

A purchaser can combine the policy with long-term care and critical illness benefits riders.

The policy is available to applicants ages 35 and older.

In other life insurance moves news:

Lincoln Financial has added the Fidelity AIM Dividend Indexed Account option to the menus for two indexed universal life insurance policies — the Lincoln WealthAccumulate 2 IUL policy and the Lincoln WealthPreserve 2 IUL policy.

The Fidelity index mixes allocation of account value to high-dividend stocks with allocation of account value to U.S. Treasuries.

The new account uses a 0% floor to protect the policyholder against market-related policy value loss.

Both IUL policies also reflect a life insurance definition change included in the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021. That can help policyholders put more cash in the policies and accumulate more assets, Lincoln says.

USAA Life Insurance Company is selling a guaranteed issue whole life insurance policy from Mutual of Omaha Insurance Company.

USAA Life — an arm of USAA of San Antonio — is marketing the product as a form of final expense coverage.

The policy is available to people ages 45 through 85 in most states, with death benefits ranging from $2,000 to $25,000.
