Common Questions

Yes. Your Value-Added Whole Life Insurance policy is guaranteed over the life of the policy to earn a minimum crediting rate (specified in your policy) less charges for mortality and expenses. The initial death benefit is guaranteed for your life. Your premium is fixed and will never increase. Learn more about our Value-Added Life policy

Yes, AAFMAA offers a single premium payment option upon approval and that lump sum becomes the base of your cash value. Your death benefit and cash value will keep growing over the years. However, we don’t recommend this option if you intend to borrow money from the cash value in the future because you will have to pay taxes and, if you are under the age of 59½ when you borrow, you will also have to pay a 10% penalty to the IRS.

The beneficiary will only receive the death benefit. The cash value is money that is available to the insured while the insured is still living. The insured can borrow up to 75% of the cash value or can cancel the policy (as described above) and get 100% of the cash value or premiums paid, whichever is greater. Learn more about Beneficiaries.
