Benefits of indexed annuities

Fixed and market-linked growth
Indexed annuities may offer a guaranteed minimum interest rate. Because some investment strategies are tied to a stock market index, they also offer growth potential beyond the minimum rate.
Access to money

With an indexed annuity, you may be able to withdraw up to 10% of the contract value each year with no surrender charges.* However, amounts not withdrawn under this provision within a given year may not carry over to the next.

Choice of income options
Annuity payouts can be set up for a fixed amount of time or guaranteed for life. You can also have lifetime coverage with a certain period guaranteed - so if you pass during this time, payments continue to your beneficiary.
*The contract value after each withdrawal must be at least $10,000.
Withdrawals reduce the annuity’s remaining death benefit, contract value, cash surrender value and future earnings. Withdrawals may be subject to income tax and, if taken prior to age 59 ½, an additional 10% IRS tax penalty may apply. More frequent withdrawals may reduce earnings more than annual withdrawals.
