Financial Security for Your Future

Help Meet Your Retirement Income Needs Now & in the Future With an Annuity 

Many of us will be living longer, which presents a key question — how are you going to live in the future? Annuities can help answer that question by providing a long-term solution designed to help protect you from the risk of outliving your income.

With periodic payments from an annuity, you may be able to receive a guaranteed stream of retirement income to help maintain a comfortable lifestyle for the rest of your life. The type of annuity you choose depends on your goals. Do you need income that starts now or in the future? A Columbus Life financial representative can help you make the right choice based on how your needs match up with the features of each annuity.

Fixed Annuities

Fixed annuities give you the chance to earn more on your money at a competitive, fixed interest rate. Indexed annuities, a specific type of fixed annuity, also provide guarantees, as well as the opportunity to earn interest based on changes in a market index or indices.

Advantage Fixed Indexed Annuity

The Advantage Single Premium Fixed Indexed Annuity provides an optional Guaranteed Lifetime Withdrawal Benefit (GLWB) with growth potential in four allocation options.1

AccountMax Market Value Adjusted Fixed Annuity

Columbus Life’s AccountMax Single Premium Deferred Annuity with a market value adjustment offers growth potential and flexibility in one product. 
What Is a Fixed Indexed Annuity?

Could a fixed indexed annuity help in preparing for retirement? Columbus Life’s Fixed Indexed Annuity can help provide growth potential, downside protection from loss of principle in a decline of the index and safety of financial strength backed by the claims paying ability. 

Single Premium Deferred Annuity

A single premium deferred annuity allows for a single, lump-sum contribution. Your money grows tax-deferred until you withdraw it or begin receiving a stream of income payments.

Passport Single Premium Deferred Annuity

The Passport Single Premium Deferred Annuity locks in a guaranteed, fixed interest rate for a certain time. Your money grows tax-deferred2 until it's withdrawn.

Single Premium Immediate Annuity

Unlike a deferred annuity, an immediate annuity permanently converts a lump sum into income payments right when you purchase the annuity. Single premium immediate annuities allow you to set up an immediate, steady income stream with a one-time, lump-sum contribution that can last as long as you live.

LifeSource Plus® Single Premium Immediate Annuity

With a single premium immediate annuity, you can make a one-time payment into your annuity to receive a guaranteed income stream for life.3

IMPORTANT DISCLOSURES
1 Advantage is not a security. It does not participate in the stock market or any index. It is an insurance contract designed to help you address your long-term retirement income needs.
2 Interest earnings grow tax deferred until received. Distributions from non-qualified annuities and IRAs are subject to ordinary income tax. Distributions from a Roth IRA are tax free after age 59½ if the plan has been established for at least five years. Withdrawals prior to age 59½ may incur a 10% IRS penalty tax in both Traditional IRA and Roth IRA plans and in non-qualified annuities.
3 An immediate annuity is permanent. Owner has no access to premium, which converts to an income payout stream. There is no cash value, no death benefit and the annuity can't be surrendered. Contract terms, such as payment amount and frequency, cannot be changed, unless commutation is available and elected. An immediate annuity should not be purchased if access may be needed to any of the premium for living expenses or other purposes.
