Catholic United Financial > Life Insurance > Universal Life insurance

Owning a Universal Life insurance policy makes a strong addition to your financial plan, while providing flexibility as your life changes.

A Universal Life insurance policy combines the protection of permanent life insurance with the accumulation of cash value at current, competitive interest rates. This type of permanent insurance provides security, growth and flexibility for children to senior adults.

Security, growth and flexibility

Security – Protection for your entire lifetime. Guaranteed by Catholic United Financial.

Growth – The cash value portion of your universal life insurance policy, as long as adequate premium payments are made, provides you with steady, tax-deferred growth for the long term.

Flexibility – You can pay more or less than your scheduled premium payment, provided there is sufficient cash value to keep your policy in force. An adjustable death benefit also provides flexibility.1
