Variable life advisory fee deductions now available
With the new Ameritas Advisor II VUL, and former Ameritas Advisor VUL*, RIAs now have the ability to deduct their clients’ advisory fees directly from the VUL policy. To add this authorization, a Variable Life Authorization form (PS 235 Life) will need to be completed at the time of the VUL application or added to an existing VUL policy by our in-force service team.

*Ameritas Advisor VUL (form 4051) is issued by Ameritas Life Insurance Corp. and underwritten by affiliate Ameritas Investment Company, LLC. Ameritas Advisor VUL is closed to new business.
