Loans and withdrawals will reduce the death benefit, cash surrender value, and may cause the policy to lapse. Lapse or surrender of a policy with a loan may cause the recognition of taxable income. Policies classified as modified endowment contracts may be subject to tax when a loan or withdrawal is made.  A federal tax penalty of 10% may also apply if the loan or withdrawal is taken prior to age 59 1/2.

The Critical Illness Benefit Rider provides a one-time lump sum benefit for covered critical illnesses subject to eligibility requirements. The benefit will not be paid for critical illnesses initially diagnosed before the rider effective date or during the waiting period. See the product producer guide for additional details.

The Long-Term Care (LTC) rider is an accelerated death benefit rider and may not be considered long-term care insurance in some states. There are additional costs associated with this rider. The Maximum Monthly Benefit Amount is $50,000. When the death benefit is accelerated for long-term care expenses it is reduced dollar for dollar, and the cash value is reduced proportionately. Please go to to verify state availability.

Vitality is the provider of the John Hancock Vitality Program in connection with policies issued by John Hancock.

John Hancock anticipates that the Critical Illness Benefit paid under this rider will generally be excludable from income under Internal Revenue Code Section 104(a)(3). However, the benefit may not qualify for this exclusion with certain third-party ownership arrangements.
