Indexed universal life

Indexed universal life insurance is a special type of universal life insurance offering lifetime protection and flexible features, plus market-linked growth based on positive changes in one or more indexes. Such life insurance policies generally offer a fixed rate of interest, but also the potential for higher cash value accumulation based on the performance of a specific market index. Protective Life’s indexed universal life product offers your client an easy-to-understand solution with coverage that doesn’t break the bank. 
Indexed segments
When a premium payment is allocated to the Indexed Account, an indexed segment is created. Indexed segments are created on the 15th of each month, and there may be 12 different segments in different stages of maturity at any given time. 
Participation rate
A 100% participation rate is guaranteed, subject to the policy’s cap rate. The participation rate determines what percentage of the S&P 500’s increase applies to your client’s policy as interest. 
Cap rate
The policy cap rate is the maximum interest rate that can be credited to a segment. The Indexed Account value is credited with an interest rate equal to any percentage increase in the S&P 500® (excluding dividends) during the indexed segment year, up to the specified current cap rate.
