Sagicor announces one comprehensive solution to meet the changing needs of retirees

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Jan. 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sagicor® Life Insurance Company (Sagicor) introduces its WealthCare Indexed Single Premium Universal Life Insurance, a policy designed for the changing financial needs of Baby Boomers. As this generation continues to transition into retirement, their priorities shift. Protecting their assets from market risk, being able to pay for chronic illness care, passing wealth to their loved ones, and maintaining control of their money may become more important in their lives.

"We wanted to create an all-encompassing product that offered financial security, while also providing downside protection," said Bart Catmull, President and Chief Operating Officer. "During development, we expanded upon this and added extra layers of protection and flexibility. Now, individuals have a product that provides for financial growth, while also allowing access to key funds if chronic illness care is needed ? hence the name WealthCare."

Designed to give individuals flexibility during retirement and provide a legacy
WealthCare gives retirees the confidence of knowing that they can have a cash resource and guaranteed wealth transfer by providing: 

Protection if you need care
According to the Institute on Aging, chronic illness has surpassed acute illness as the major health issue of older adults. This problem is increasing with medical advancements.4 The natural process of aging could lead to a chronic condition that takes away a retiree's ability to perform simple Activities of Daily Living independently.

While traditional health insurance and Medicare may not cover certain caregiving expenses, WealthCare gives retirees the confidence of knowing that they can have a cash resource to use as they like should they develop a chronic illness and need assistance performing at least two of the six Activities of Daily Living or with a severe cognitive impairment.

Benefits when you need them
Because the time of need can be stressful for the policyowner, their spouse and other family members, Sagicor's expedited process provides direct access to cash benefits upon qualification of the claim. Unlike other policies, there are no receipts required for reimbursement.

Financial flexibility
Another advantage of adding WealthCare to the retirement portfolio is asset control. WealthCare automatically includes a Return of Premium feature, which provides flexibility to the policy owner should their financial needs change.
