If you are using life insurance to fund your cryopreservation, ensure that your agent is aware of these policy requirements:
- The insurance provider must be rated A- or better by A.M. Best (www.ambest.com)
- Alcor Life Extension Foundation must be named as the owner and beneficiary of the policy (See Buy-Back Agreement for confirmation that Alcor's rights as the owner are both limited and revocable)
- Alcor will need a complete copy of the policy, from the face page to the last rider, including the policy illustration and application
- With the exception of billing statements, all notification regarding the status of your policy (lapse notices, annual summaries, etc.) must be sent to Alcor
- The death benefit amount must satisfy your minimum cryopreservation amount (See Schedule A)
- Alcor recommends that you overfund your policy by at least $25,000 to cover unexpected contingencies, the cost of which may be additional to the minimum fee for cryopreservation.
Diane Cremeens, Alcor Membership Department Coordinator, is available to address any questions regarding these requirements ( or 480-905-1906 ext. 132)
