Marin and California Life Insurance Attorney: Pacific Life Insurance Company: Indexed Universal Life Insurance Policies


Indexed Universal Life Insurance

Pacific Life Insurance Company IULs

Insurance agents and financial advisors sell indexed universal life insurance (IULs) primarily as savings vehicles for the future. Our lawyers recommend against these costly, complicated policies, and advise you to be prepared when an agent recommends one. Pacific Life Insurance Company (sometimes called “PacLife”) is a leading seller of indexed universal life insurance in California and throughout the United States. Pacific Life issues policies through its subsidiaries Pacific Life & Annuity Company and Pacific Life Insurance Company.  Trade names for these products include Pacific Life PDX, Pacific Indexed Accumulator 5, Pacific Discovery Xelerator IUL, or Pacific Discovery Protector IUL.  Pacific Life offers riders to these IULs for additional premiums.  All of these IUL products are complex and involve complicated structures of returns on your money, fees, and charge and penalties you may incur if you surrender your policy or allow it to lapse.

The attorneys at Evans Law Firm, Inc. represent consumers, especially seniors, who suffer losses on indexed universal life insurance policies. If you or a loved one is a United States resident and has purchased an indexed universal life insurance policy from Pacific Life including Pacific Life PDX, Pacific Indexed Accumulator 5, Pacific Discovery Xelerator IUL, or Pacific Discovery Protector IUL, call us today toll free at 888-50EVANS (888-503-8267) and we can review your policy and any riders attached to it for free.  A list of major life insurance carriers and distributors in California, in addition to Pacific Life, appears below.

Consumers, especially seniors, do not always understand how IULs work, and agents may not fully explain important details either. Actual returns may be less than those advertised.  IULs generally require additional premium payments after the initial premium, and if the policyholder does not keep up with premium payments, coverage will lapse.  Carriers like Pacific Life reserve the right to change fees, increase premiums, and modify any non‐guaranteed elements like fee waivers. Senior consumers need to understand the risks involved with IULs.  Always consult a professional with nothing to gain from your purchase of any life insurance or annuity and also consult your tax advisor as withdrawals, replacements, and surrenders can have adverse tax consequences for you.

Leading providers and distributors of life insurance and fixed, variable and fixed indexed deferred annuities in California, including Pacific Life Insurance Company, are listed below. We are not in any way suggesting that any of these carriers or distributors has done anything wrong.  Rather, the list is provided solely as a reference for our readers.
