Effective 05/02/2022, Pacific Life Insurance Company’s Pacific PremierCare suite of products will no longer be available for new sales. This includes Pacific PremierCare® Choice one-year, five-year, 10-year, and lifetime premium whole life insurance products with long-term care (LTC) benefits1 and Pacific PremierCare Advantage Universal Life Insurance with Long-Term Care Benefits2 in California.
We remain committed to the long-term care (LTC) market as we continue to recognize U.S. consumers’ large, unmet need for long-term care. After a strategic review of the LTC marketplace, we see greater potential in the market for chronic health (CHR) and long-term care (LTC) riders on cash value life insurance policies.
Pacific Life has seen sales of hybrid LTC products decline as the current environment has made it difficult to be both competitive and profitable. By focusing solely on riders for our cash value products to meet the LTC need, we can prioritize and utilize resources more effectively.
We will continue to service our in-force Pacific PremierCare policies. For existing policyowners, there will be no change and they will continue to receive the exceptional service they’ve come to expect from Pacific Life.
