4 With Automated Income Monitor, selecting the dollar amount of withdrawals will influence their duration (how long they last). Likewise, selecting a duration will influence the amount of the withdrawal. Either way, we will provide you the details and send you an annual update to keep you informed. Taking income out of your policy will reduce its cash value and may increase the chance it will lapse. If you plan to rely on your policy for income, ask your financial professional about using the Overloan Lapse Protection Rider to help keep your policy from lapsing.
