Changes to Grandfathering rules for two life groups. New Non-Evidence and Overall Maximums for Life and Disability

We’ve just announced new Grandfathering rules. We will now grandfather groups with as few as two lives. We’ve also increased our Non-Evidence Maximums (NEM) for Life, Long-Term Disability (LTD), and Weekly Indemnity (WI) products, as well as Grandfathering and Overall Maximums for LTD.
