- Issue Age 75 or younger, an inflation protection option must be selected.
- Issue ages 76 to 79, no inflation protection required (will be issued as a Partnership policy).
Note: Under a joint application, the inflation protection requirement for a Partnership-Qualified policy will be based upon the younger applicant’s issue age.
