Marquis Centennial Flexible Premium Fixed Indexed Annuity

As you develop your retirement strategy, it’s important to determine how you will protect and grow your assets, as well as ensure sufficient retirement income. Marquis® Centennial Indexed Annuity may be right for you if you are looking for a product that offers tax-deferred growth, no loss of principal due to market losses, access to lifetime income, access to your funds1 and beneficiary protection.

A Marquis Centennial Indexed Annuity is a deferred, fixed indexed annuity offered by The Lafayette Life Insurance Company. It provides options with the potential to earn interest based on the positive movement of a market index, as well as a fixed option that provides a guaranteed interest rate.

The Power of Tax Deferral

Because an annuity is tax-deferred, your money grows faster because you don’t pay taxes on the interest earned until you take a withdrawal or distribution. Over long periods, tax deferral can make a significant difference in preparing for retirement. (Tax deferral provides no added advantage to an annuity purchased through a qualified plan or IRA.)

No Loss of Principal Due to Market Losses

With the Marquis Centennial, you are not invested in the market and therefore will never lose your principal because of market performance. In addition, you are guaranteed a value of no less than the guaranteed minimum surrender value stated in your contract, minus any previous withdrawals.

Guaranteed Income

One of the most valuable options of any annuity is its ability to provide you a guaranteed income. This income may be paid to you for a fixed period, over your lifetime, or the joint lifetimes of you and your spouse. Exercising one of the annuity payout options in the Marquis Centennial contract can provide you with a guaranteed income that you cannot outlive.

Access to Your Funds

Annuities are designed for long-term accumulation and not for short-term liquidity; however, limited access is available in the early years of the policy while withdrawal charges are in effect. All or some of each withdrawal is subject to income taxes, and if withdrawals are taken before age 59 ½, they may be subject to a penalty tax. Please consult your tax advisor regarding your specific situation.

Choose an Allocation Path That Best Suits You

Allocate your premium among all these choices. Or among a few. Or to just one. It’s up to you. Going forward, you will have opportunities at specific times to change your choices if your needs change. Marquis Centennial offers the choice to split premium among 10 allocation options2:

S&P 500® Index Point-to-Point

This one-year point-to-point option3 determines and locks in positive interest, if any, annually. It credits an interest rate that factors in the change in value of the S&P 500® Index One-Year Point-to-Point from the start date to the end date of the one-year crediting period.

S&P 500® Index Monthly Average

This one-year monthly average option3 determines and locks in positive interest, if any, annually. It credits an interest rate that factors in the average value of the S&P 500® Index measured monthly over the one-year crediting period compared to the value of the index at the start date of the crediting period.

S&P 500© Index Monthly Cap

This monthly cap option4 determines and locks in positive interest, if any, annually. It credits interest that factors in the sum of the percentage change in the S&P 500® Index for each of the 12 one-month periods within the crediting period.

J.P. Morgan Strategic Balanced Index Point-to-Point

This index6,7 is sponsored by global investment bank J.P. Morgan. The one-, two-, and three-year point-to-point options credit positive interest, if any, every one, two or three years. The interest rate factors in the change in value of the index from the start date to the end date of the crediting period.

The index7,8 is sponsored by global investment bank Goldman Sachs. The one-, two-, and three-year point-to-point options credit positive interest, if any, every one, two or three years.
