Life Pro Plus Survivor

A cost-effective way to INSURE TWO PEOPLE – and the benefits don’t stop there.

Allianz Life Pro+ Survivor pays a death benefit after both insureds have passed away. Because the mortality risk is based on two insureds, it can be more cost-effective than purchasing two individual policies. You also have the option to add a death benefit when the first insured dies, by purchasing the First-to-Die Rider.1

Allianz Life Pro+ Survivor also gives you the potential to accumulate cash value tax-deferred in your policy, based on positive changes in an external index, or a fixed interest rate.

Your cash value can be accessed income-tax-free to help with a variety of financial needs. Using policy loans and withdrawals,2 you can access your cash value to help with needs like supplemental college funding or supplementing your retirement income.

You also have access to a portion of the death benefit in the event of a chronic or terminal illness. (A portion of the Chronic Illness Accelerated Benefit may be taxable.)

1The First-to-Die Rider is available at an additional cost when the policy is issued. The cost of the rider is based on age, gender, risk class, First-to-Die Rider death benefit amount, and policy duration.

2Policy loans and withdrawals will reduce the available cash value and death benefit and may cause the policy to lapse, or affect guarantees against lapse. Additional premium payments may be required to keep the policy in force. In the event of a lapse, outstanding policy loans in excess of unrecovered cost basis will be subject to ordinary income tax. Tax laws are subject to change and you should consult your tax professional.

Issue age and minimum

You must be ages 30-80 to purchase Allianz Life Pro+ Survivor.

The minimum initial premium payment is based on age, gender, risk class, death benefit, and riders, but is never less than $25/month or $300/year.

Death benefit

Minimum death benefit on the insured begins at $200,000, with a $65,000,000 maximum death benefit (subject to limitations).

Death benefit options

You have the flexibility to choose which death benefit option best suits your needs. Because your needs and goals may change, you also have the opportunity to change your death benefit option after the first policy year.

  • Death benefit option A (level): Your death benefit will be equal to the specified amount.
  • Death benefit option B (increasing): Your death benefit will be equal to the specified amount plus the accumulation value.
  • Death benefit option C (return of premium): Your death benefit is equal to the specified amount plus the premium you have paid into the policy. This option can only be elected at issue.

Premium payment options

Available payment options include:

  • Annual
  • Semiannual
  • Quarterly
  • Monthly
  • Premium Deposit Fund Rider – Combines all of the advantages of life insurance with the simplicity of a single lump-sum payment. By submitting a lump-sum amount to the PDF, we're able to automatically transfer your annual premium payments into your life insurance policy for you. This feature is available at no additional cost, but is not available in all states. The funding period can be designated between 3-10 policy years.

Guarantees

If you pay the required minimum premium for the first 12 policy years and do not take policy loans or withdrawals, your policy will be guaranteed not to lapse during that 12-year period.

Survivor benefit

The death benefit increases 10% if the beneficiary chooses to take the policy proceeds over 10 years or longer. The death benefit increase may be taxable.

At age 120

When the insured turns 120, the death benefit equals the accumulation value. All loans will be allocated to the fixed allocation and will be charged the preferred loan rate. No premium will be accepted after age 120, unless it’s necessary to keep the policy in force, and no deductions or charges will be assessed after the insured reaches age 120.

Barclays US Dynamic Balance Index II1 yes no no no
Barclays US Dynamic Balance Index II with annual floor1 yes no no no
Blended index with 2% floor yes yes no no

Fixed interest allocation

You may also select fixed interest for a portion of your policy values. Your fixed interest rate is guaranteed to never be less than .10%; ask your financial professional for the current rate.

Rates

The participation rate will vary depending on which crediting method you choose. The participation rate determines how much of the percentage of indexed growth for an index option we use to calculate any indexed interest we credit to a life insurance policy.

  • If you choose the monthly sum or annual point-to-point crediting method, which include caps on indexed interest, Allianz will guarantee a 100% participation rate over the life of the policy.
  • If you choose the monthly average crediting method, Allianz will establish the participation rate on each policy anniversary. The participation rate is guaranteed to never be less than 5%.
  • If the Barclays US Dynamic Balance Index II options are chosen, Allianz will establish the participation rate on each policy anniversary. This participation rate will be guaranteed to never be less than 5%. For the option with annual floor, the annual floor is set by Allianz at the start of the policy, and upon each policy anniversary, and is guaranteed to never be less than 0.5%.

How much indexed interest your policy can earn may be limited by a cap. The cap is the maximum percentage of index change we use for a specified time period to determine how much interest we credit to your policy in a given contract year. Ask your financial professional for the current cap.

The annual floor depends on the index allocation option you choose. If the index performance is flat or negative, you will still receive credited interest equal to the annual floor.

A guaranteed annual bonus of 0.6% will be credited to the policy accumulation value starting in year 111.

Accessing the cash value

Life Pro+ Survivor provides flexibility and access to the cash value through policy loans and withdrawals2 while the insured is living. There are several ways to access your available cash value:

  • Indexed (participating) loan
  • Standard loan
  • Preferred loan
  • Withdrawals/partial surrenders

2Policy loans and withdrawals will reduce the available cash value and death benefit and may cause the policy to lapse, or affect guarantees against lapse. Additional premium payments may be required to keep the policy in force. In the event of a lapse, outstanding policy loans in excess of unrecovered cost basis will be subject to ordinary income tax. Tax laws are subject to change and you should consult your tax professional.
