Dividend scale changes impact life products


Principal Life Insurance Company periodically reviews the experience of participating life insurance policies to determine whether or not changes are needed to the current dividend scale. Based on our most recent review, Principal Life is adjusting the dividend scale for Individual life insurance products.

Customer communication

Customers will be informed in their Policy Annual Statement, which in part will read:

“During the past year, the company changed the dividend scale which could affect your policy values. The dividend scale was adjusted to reflect the experience of participating life insurance policies like yours, which has been different than expected.  Some policies will receive a higher dividend, some policies will receive a lower dividend, and some policies will see no change in dividends this year.  You may request a current illustration of your policy by following the instructions in the Important Policyowner Notice, above.”
