Term Product Updates        
From Lincoln Financial 
Lincoln Financial announced new information regarding term conversions including a new current assumption UL for term conversions for term policies that were issued prior to April 2007 and pricing improvements to their Life Elements Level Term and TermAccel that are coming in the first quarter of 2017.

In February, Lincoln will introduce a current assumption UL product

called Lincoln ConversionSM UL, that in most cases will be the only

conversion option available for policyholders with a Term product

introduced prior to April 2007.
  • The UL conversion product will be offered at a price that reflects the anticipated mortality risk of converted policies based on today's pricing and risk-management standards.
  • For the new Term Conversion Guidelines on Term products introduced prior to April 2007, there is an extended transition period to March 1, 2017 to aid in the transition for you and your clients.
