United of Omaha - Updates to Conversion Language for Term Life Answers


Effective April 1, 2020, United of Omaha will be updating the conversion language for their Term Life Answers policies.

Conversion Period

The conversion period allowed will be as follows:

  • 10-Year Term
    • For issue ages 18-72:  The earlier of 10 years or age 75
    • For issue ages 73+:  During the first 2 policy years only
  • 15-year Term:
    • The earlier of 15 years or age 75
  • 20-year Term:
    • The earlier of 20 years or age 75
  • 30-year Term:
    • During the first 20 policy years only


Conversion Product

Beginning April 1, 2020, the language in the Term Life Answers policy referring to the available conversion product will read as: The new policy will be a form of permanent insurance that we make available for conversions at the time of conversion.  The previous Term Life Answers conversion language indicated the conversion product could be 'any form of whole life insurance being issued by us at that time'. This language is no longer relevant to the products being offered in today's marketplace.

The current company practice will continue to allow Term Life Answers conversions into any of the products listed below, regardless of issue date.  As with the previous language, the conversion products available are subject to change at any time and may vary in the future in accordance with the policy language.

Any applications received in the home office after April 30, 2020, regardless of the application signed date, will use the new conversion language.
