Juvenile Enrichment Plan (JEP):

The FCSU’s Juvenile Enrichment Plan (JEP) is an innovative way for you to offer protection and security to your children, grandchildren, godchildren, nephews and nieces. It’s a way for you to offer any child, from infancy to age 25, a significant amount of Term Life Insurance with the guaranteed ability to convert that Term coverage into a permanent life insurance contract.

Here’s how the JEP works. You select the amount of Term Life Insurance coverage you want to provide from the low FCSU’s low premium schedule – any amount between $10,000 and $100,000. During this Term Insurance period, the JEP certificate holder (the child) earns conversion credits toward the future purchase of an FCSU permanent life insurance policy. At conversion the JEP certificate holder can select the type of permanent insurance plan he or she prefers. The earned conversion credits will be applied to lower the new policy’s first year premium. The young adult now has a permanent life policy that can begin accruing cash and loan value and is eligible for dividends.

Other JEP benefits include:

  • One low premium per $1,000 of coverage for all ages.
  • The right to purchase permanent insurance prior to age 25 is guaranteed, and no medical exam is required.
  • JEP certificate holders are eligible for a variety of other FCSU benefits, including scholarships for those who qualify, and cultural and athletic programs.
