You can purchase the following riders with a term life policy from AIG:

  • Child Rider
  • Terminal Illness Rider
  • Waiver of Premium

Guaranteed Life Insurance

AIG offers guaranteed life insurance to clients between the ages of 50 and 85, with coverage ranging between $5,000 and $25,000. These policies require no medical exams or health questions but will pay a reduced death benefit if you pass away during the first two years of the policy unless the cause of death is an accident. Your beneficiaries receive 110% of the premiums you paid if you pass away due to an illness, suicide or any other non-accidental cause during the first two years of the policy.  

AIG offers a chronic illness rider and a terminal illness rider, free of cost, with all its guaranteed life insurance policies.

Universal Life Insurance

AIG offers universal life policies to clients between the ages of 18 and 80 with a minimum coverage of $50,000. When you purchase a universal life policy, you have the option of choosing between the death benefit and both the death benefit and the cash value. Opting for the latter will result in higher premiums.

Variable Universal Life Insurance

This insurance policy offers a variety of investment options for your cash value. This policy is available to clients 80 years old or below and has a minimum death benefit of $100,000. Like universal life, you can opt between the death benefit, and both the death benefit and the cash value.

Guaranteed Variable Life Insurance

AIG offers this policy to clients between the ages of 18 and 80; the policy can be extended to the age of 121. This policy has a minimum face value of $100,000 and offers cash value. You have the option of decreasing or increasing your benefits during the policy; this will affect your premiums as well.

Accidental Death & Dismemberment (AD&D) Insurance

AIG offers AD&D insurance to clients between the ages of 18 and 80 with a maximum death benefit of $500,000. This policy requires no medical exams. The policy has no term and can be used to provide coverage for a short term with another policy. If the cause of death is not an accident, your beneficiaries will not receive the death benefit.

How do I purchase an AIG life insurance policy ?

 You can purchase policies online, over the phone, or through insurance agents. AIG has AIG Direct, an insurance company that sells life insurance policies underwritten by them. AIG Direct sells policies over the phone or online. Both offer similar policies, and you won’t be charged extra if you buy through an agent. Working with an agent can be better as they spend more time with you, help you understand the policies, and answer any questions you may have.
