At a Glance

This year, you can give your children and grandchildren the usual toys. But why not give them a gift that could last a lifetime - AFSA's Youth Term Life Plan.

With the AFSA Youth Term Life Plan, you can help guarantee a lifetime of protection for the special children in your life. The Plan makes a thoughtful gift for a holiday, birthday, graduation, or other special occasion in a child's life.

Plan Highlights

  • Provides protection that grows to $2,000, $5,000, or $10,000
  • Guaranteed conversion to a whole life or group term life policy once your children or grandchildren reach age 23
  • Modest one-time premium of $75, $150, or $300 per child

Protection for All the Children in Your Family

Your children and grandchildren age 15 days to 18 years qualify for AFSA Youth Term Life protection as long as the child's parent or guardian is an active member of AFSA and authorizes the Enrollment Form.

Economical Coverage

For each child, you pay just a one-time premium of only $75 for the $2,000.00 coverage, $150 for the $5,000.00 coverage, or $300 for the $10,000.00 coverage. It's your choice.

Protection That Grows as They Grow

Every birthday makes the coverage more valuable. Face value begins modestly at $1,000.00, $2,500.00, or $5,000.00 (whichever you choose) for children in the first year of life; after that, the face amount increases by $50, $125, or $250 every year. The AFSA Youth Term Life protection keeps growing until age 21 when your children are protected for $2,000.00, $5,000.00, or $10,000.00. The following table shows how the benefit grows each year.

Guaranteed Lifetime Protection as Adults

Today, many young Americans who reach adulthood cannot get life insurance because of an illness or injury they had as children or because of conditions in their work environment. Others must pay higher premiums to get the life protection they need to protect their family.

Through the AFSA Youth Term Life Plan, you can help build a foundation for your children's and grandchildren's future. At age 23, your children will be given the guaranteed option to convert their AFSA Youth Term Life protection to $10,000.00 or $20,000.00 of a whole life or group term life policy with cash values. Additional premiums will be charged later on to continue coverage under the permanent life policy. Please refer to your Certificate of Insurance for more information.

When Your Gift Begins

Your children's or grandchildren's protection in the AFSA Youth Term Life Plan will begin on the first day of the month following acceptance of the Enrollment Form by Hartford Life Insurance Company and the payment of the required premium. Acceptance into this plan is subject to medical evidence of insurability as determined by The Hartford. Depending on your age, the amount of coverage you request, and your answers on the application, a medical examination, medical test(s), or other evidence of good health may be required. Any exams/tests requested by the company will be conducted at your convenience and at no expense to you. An individual's coverage terminates the first day of the month coinciding with or next following age 23.

In the case of material misrepresentation on the Enrollment Form or suicide during the first two years of coverage, no benefits will be paid, and all premiums will be refunded, minus any claims paid.

The benefits and rates for this group policy are guaranteed for 31 days. After that date, benefits may be changed for all persons covered by this Plan. You can never be singled out for a change in benefits and we will notify you in advance in writing of any change.
