Thought You'd Never Live Long Enough to Get Your Money Back? Think Again

New State Farm Return of Premium Life Insurance Policy Refunds Your Money

BLOOMINGTON, IL--(Marketwire - November 21, 2008) - Young families get the need for life insurance, but in today's economy it's not easy to decide how to prepare for one's future. People need security -- but they also want flexibility.

State Farm gets it, too. And we've come up with an answer. It's called the Return of Premium life insurance policy. And it lives up to its name.

The Return of Premium policy is a 20- or 30-year term life insurance policy that protects your family in the way you've come to expect from State Farm. But here's the difference -- at the end of the term you get all your money back if the insured is still living. We're serious. Go ahead and read that again.

"State Farm realizes young families want a product that fits easily into their financial plan," said Susan Waring, Executive Vice President, Chief Administrative Officer -- Life and Vice President Health. "A Return of Premium policy offers families life insurance protection with the added benefit of returned premiums for things like college or retirement, if they outlive the policy."

Both the Return of Premium Term 20 and Return of Premium Term 30 policies provide a guaranteed, level death benefit with a guaranteed, level premium for 20 and 30 years respectively.

"This return of premium policy is a great idea, especially for the consumer who needs a disciplined way to help meet future financial goals, such as helping with the costs of sending children to college, paying down the balance of an existing mortgage at the end of 20 years, or even as part of a comprehensive retirement plan," said Julie Stav, financial expert and New York Times best-selling author.
