Special Benefits / Features

Accidental Death Benefit

The plan will pay an additional amount equal to the account value (up to $500,000) if a covered accidental injury should result in the loss of the owners's life within 365 days of injury. Benefits may vary by state.

Company Completion

The Company Completion is a benefit that is available if the Owner becomes disabled during the accumulation phase of a Flexible Premium Deferred Annuity.

In order to be eligible for the disability benefit:

  • the disability must have occurred at least one year, after the Owner’s contract issue date;
  • the disability must have occurred prior to the Owner attaining age 65 or normal retirement date, whichever occurs earlier.
  • the disability must have continued without interruption for not less than 180 consecutive days; and
  • the Owner must have been actively contributing during the tax year prior to the date of disability for 9 out of 12 months.

The Owner must provide all necessary information, forms and physician certification to the Company for review in order for the Company to establish proof of disability and the effective date of the disability. Once eligibility is approved, Fidelity Security Life will make contributions on the Owner’s behalf until the earliest of:

  • the date the Owner is no longer disabled;
  • the Owner’s attainment of age 65;
  • the Owner’s Normal Retirement Date;
  • the Owner’s date of death; or
  • the date the annuitization benefit begins.

The Company Completion Benefit may distribute in one of two ways:

  • as a life annuity that begins on the earliest of the Owners Normal Retirement Date or the Owner’s attainment of age 65; or
  • in the event of the Owner’s death prior to annuitization, in a single sum to the Beneficiary.
Eligibility requirements, Limitations and Exclusions are provided in the Contract Provisions.

Terminal Illness

Should the contract owner be diagnosed with a terminal illness, FSL will allow withdrawals up to 100 percent of the TaxVantage account value. Withdrawals may be treated as Ordinary income.

Policy Loan (403b only)

Loans are permitted from the owner's 403(b) account with no income tax or excise tax penalty. However, loans must be repaid in substantially equal payments, not less than quarterly, over five years (10 years for home loans). Details on limits, interest rates and restrictions are available upon request.
