Imagine a Path to Retirement With Marquis Single Premium Fixed Indexed Annuity
Do you seek confidence in the progress of your retirement savings efforts? Do you seek certainty in the prospect that you can receive income for as long as you live? Do you seek both?
Our fixed indexed annuity can help you address your wealth-building efforts and income needs, now and in the future. Consider Marquis SP® to help create a path to financial confidence. Marquis SP is a single premium deferred fixed indexed annuity that earns interest in part on changes in a market index, which measure how markets or parts of markets perform.
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 SP offers the choice to split premium among nine allocation options1:
S&P 500® Index Point-to-Point
This one-year point-to-point option2 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 option2 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.
Fixed Interest Option One Year
This option3 credits daily interest at a fixed ratedeclared in advance and guaranteed for an index year. It will never credit less than the 1% guaranteed minimum fixed interest rate.
J.P. Morgan Strategic Balanced Index Point-to-Point
This index4,5 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.
GS Momentum Builder® Multi-Asset Class Index Point-to-Point
The index4,6 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. The interest rate factors in the change in value of the index from the start date to the end date of the chosen crediting period.
Protecting Retirement Income With Guaranteed Lifetime Withdrawal Benefit
The ultimate purpose of the Guaranteed Lifetime Withdrawal Benefit is to provide you an income stream that, once begun, can continue for the remainder of your life.
Income for Life
Predictable... sustainable... income for life. Marquis SP’s optional Guaranteed Lifetime Withdrawal Benefit (GLWB) can secure it for you. The “lifetime payout amount” cannot be exhausted by market losses or guaranteed withdrawals7. The result: an income stream you can’t outlive.
Confidence for Life
Retirement certainty comes in knowing income is yours for the life of the covered person or persons (owner and spouse if the spousal benefit is elected8). Just choose the benefit at issue (covered persons must be between ages 45-80) for an added annual charge9. If the younger covered person is 60 or older, you can begin annual withdrawals of the benefit immediately. Otherwise you can begin them the first index year after the younger covered person turns 60.

1 The contract owner will choose one or more of the nine allocation options at time of purchase. The contract is credited with the guaranteed minimum interest rate (GMIR) until the sweep date, when the account value will be transferred to the chosen allocation options. At the end of each crediting period, the owner may transfer the account value in that option among the nine options. Options may be added or eliminated in the future. 2 Interest is determined in part by positive change in the S&P 500 Index over the crediting period, adjusted by a percentage (a 100% participation rate unless declared otherwise in advance), subject to a maximum (an Interest Rate Cap declared in advance that will never be less 1%). 3 Interest rates are declared in advance, guaranteed for one Index Year, and will never be less than 1%. 4 Interest is determined by a formula that factors in the performance of the J.P. Morgan Strategic Balanced Index during the crediting period, adjusted by a percentage (a Participation Rate declared in advance and guaranteed to be no less than 10%). There is no Interest Rate Cap. 5 Index objectives may not be met. See the specific index brochure for details and risks of this index and the one-, two- and three-year allocation options. 6 Interest is determined by a formula that factors in the performance of the Goldman Sachs GSMAC Index during the crediting period, adjusted by a percentage (a Participation Rate declared in advance and guaranteed to be no less than 10%). There is no Interest Rate Cap. 7 If the owner withdraws more than the annual lifetime payout amount, the guaranteed amount will usually decrease and the rider may terminate. Once purchased the rider cannot be voluntarily terminated until the beginning of the 6th index year. Once terminated, it cannot be reinstated. 8In Oregon, spouse includes domestic partner. Spousal benefit not available in CT. 9 Annual charge for individual and spousal GLWB rider is 0.95% (1.50% maximum) charged on Benefit Base at start of Index Year. Instead of charging more for the spousal GLWB, the annual lifetime payout amount for the spousal benefit is 90% of the amount under the individual benefit. Spousal benefit not available in CT. The charge is deducted from Account Value at the end of Index Year (before interest crediting).
