Growth Opportunities and a Level of Protection
Guaranteed Distribution Payments
Guaranteed Death Benefit
As an index-linked life insurance product, Brighthouse SmartGuard Plus tracks the performance of one or more market indices and does not invest directly in the markets. Once Distribution Payments begin, all policy values are transferred to the Fixed Account and there is no further participation in index-linked market performance.
The primary purpose of the policy is to provide life insurance protection. It is designed to be held over the long term, is not offered primarily as an investment, and should not be used as a short-term savings vehicle. Various negative consequences can occur if you fail to hold the policy long term.
After the 10th policy year, Distribution Payments are available through the GDR and are paid in the form of policy loans. Loan balances are charged interest up to 8% annually. Under the GDR, the policy’s cash value will increase when necessary to prevent policy loans from causing the policy to lapse.
