Indextra® Fixed Indexed Annuity
Do you seek confidence in the progress of your retirement savings efforts? Do you want to have a retirement income stream you can't outlive? How about both?
Indextra is a fixed indexed annuity. It earns interest based on a portion, if any, of changes in a market index, which measures how markets or parts of markets perform. This tax-deferred insurance product is designed both to protect its accumulated account value from losses due to negative changes in market indexes associated with the annuity and to guarantee an income you can't outlive for the period selected.
Indextra gives you both choice and potential in one insured vehicle that helps you prepare your path to the future.
Benefits of Indextra Fixed Indexed Annuity
Financial security is a destination. Consider a path with Indextra.
Interest rates are based in part on positive changes in market indexes, but will never be less than zero - even if market indexes go down.
Once interest is credited, it can never be lost due to declines in market indexes associated with the annuity.
Seven indexed interest options and one fixed interest option give you the ability to choose how your money is allocated.
Interest earnings grow tax-deferred until withdrawn. This usually happens when you retire and are likely to be in a lower income tax bracket.
Up to 10% of the account value may be withdrawn each index year without incurring a withdrawal charge.
Could This Fixed Indexed Annuity Be Right for You?
An indexed annuity may be the right fit for a variety of needs:
You desire the potential to earn interest that's partially determined by market indexes, with protection from loss due to negative returns.
You value options when it comes to allocating your funds.
You seek flexibility to allocate money to multiple allocation options, including an option where interest is determined in part by a proprietary index.
You want interest earnings to grow tax-deferred until you withdraw them.
You value death benefit protection.
Details About This Indexed Annuity
When your Indextra contract is issued, your premium earns the guaranteed minimum interest rate declared. On the sweep date (one to 22 days after issue), your account value will be allotted among the allocation options you specified.
The first crediting period begins on the sweep date and ends after the number of index years specific to the crediting period. The end of one crediting period marks the beginning of the next.
Any interest for the indexed interest options is credited to your account value at the end of a crediting period. No interest is credited on amounts withdrawn before the end of a crediting period. We guarantee the indexed interest rate will never be less than 0%, even if the market index goes down.
