HOUSTON, February 14, 2011 — American General Life Companies (American General) announces AG Secure Lifetime GULSM,a new universal life insurance product designed for clients who need a guaranteed, affordably priced permanent death benefit. Structured to provide more guarantees and flexibility than traditional guaranteed UL, policies can be issued to age 80, with guaranteed level premiums and cash value accumulation.

“We developed AG Secure Lifetime GUL to meet the need in today’s market for a competitively priced life insurance product that offers security through guaranteed cash buildup,” said Tim Heslin, vice president and product line business leader. “Guaranteed access creates future flexibility and choice as needs change. It’s more affordable than whole life and, like traditional UL, provides access to cash that can come in handy during retirement or emergencies later in life. Unlike typical guaranteed UL policies available today, the cash and access to it are guaranteed.”

With the flexibility to withdraw cash and continue proportionally reduced coverage and premiums, and its combination of secure cash accumulation, affordable price and competitive compensation, we believe it offers a unique selling opportunity.”
