Capitalization Phase. The difference between the cumulative premiums paid and the cash values during the first few years of the policy is due to the initial cost of setting up the death benefit and the compensation to the financial professional who designs, sells, and will service the policy for years to come.

Most of the IBC policies that we design have two types of PUA riders: scheduled PUAs that are included in the annual or monthly premium that is paid, and unscheduled PUAs that vary annually by policy year from $0 to the difference between the 7-pay premium or MEC limit for the policy and the total annual premium for the base whole life policy and the scheduled PUAs.
