(2) an illustration of the amount and length of benefits, and guaranteed lifetime benefits, if any, for each covered person;

(3) an explanation of each exclusion, reduction, and limitation on long-term care benefits; and

(4) if applicable to the policy type,

(A) disclosure of the effects of exercising other rights under the policy;

(B) disclosure of guarantees related to the long-term care costs of insurance charges; and

(C) current and projected maximum lifetime benefits.

(b) If a long-term care benefit is paid under a life insurance policy by the acceleration of the policy death benefit, and is in benefit payment status, a monthly report shall be provided to the policyholder. The report must include

(1) long-term care benefits paid out during the month;

(2) an explanation of changes in the policy, including changes in death benefits or cash values, due to long-term care benefits being paid out; and
