My team was assigned the first challenge: The Language of Life Insurance, changing the way people talk about life insurance, with a focus on reaching millennials and Generation Z.

A recent article by the New York Times, Why Some Life Insurance Premiums Are Skyrocketing, brought attention to an issue that I and Frederick Karp have been talking about for some time: Many stock insurance companies are raising the cost of insurance rates (COI) on their in-force universal life (UL) insurance policies. Penn Mutual, however, has never increased the current cost of insurance rates on in-force UL policies and has no intention of doing so.

Believe it or not, it was only in 1979 that “traditional” universal life (UL) insurance was first offered to the market, by E.F Hutton. No one in the 80s or 90s thought that underlying UL guaranteed interest rates of four percent would be challenging for companies to meet in 2015 and beyond.
