Available Benefits of AccountMax MVA Annuity
Security for your loved ones is paramount — the optional Enhanced Death Benefit Rider within AccountMax can help preserve the value of your annuity for your beneficiaries. This benefit offers additional protection to help offset any expenses that beneficiaries could incur after your death.
AccountMax also has a market value adjustment (MVA) on withdrawals taken during the guarantee period - if you decide to make a withdrawal, your account's value will adjust depending on the interest rate offered at that time. If we offer higher interest rates, your account's value may be higher; if we offer lower interest rates, your account's value may be lower.
