Retirement. Your retirement. What does it mean to you? And how do you plan to get there financially? A variable annuity can be an excellent addition to your retirement wealth-building strategy when used as designed.
With a variable annuity, you have added control over your investment dollars. You allocate your funds among a variety of investment options with objectives ranging from aggressive to conservative. We call these sub-accounts. Your investment returns are tied to the performance of the underlying investments of the sub-accounts. If you are willing to accept a higher rate of risk in return for higher growth potential, variable annuities may be an appealing strategy to reach your retirement goals.

Variable annuities are tax-deferred insurance products. If you are investing through a tax-advantaged plan (such as an IRA or 401(k) rollover), you will receive no additional tax advantage or deferral from the annuity.
Payment of benefits under the annuity contract is the obligation of, and is guaranteed by, the insurance company issuing the annuity. Guarantees are based on the claims-paying ability of the insurer. There is no guarantee of the investment performance or safety of the variable investment options. Variable annuities are suited for long-term investing. Earnings and pre-tax payments are subject to income tax at withdrawal. Withdrawals prior to age 59½ are generally subject to a 10% IRS penalty tax. Interest rates are declared by the insurance company at annual effective rates, taking into account daily compounding of interest. Product approval, availability and features may vary by state. See your financial professional for availability, details and limitations.
