10The PUA Rider

A “rider” is simply an additional provision that may be added to an insurance policy. It is a powerful, valuable asset for the policy-holder that gives you additional death and life benefits.

But the paid-up addition rider has a growing and guaranteed cash value that you can surrender, in part or completely – or use to secure your borrowing power – at any time.

In short, the PUA is like the delicious cherry on top of your sundae.
