They provide the potential for interest to be credited based in part on the performance of a specified index, without the risk of loss of premium due to market downturns or fluctuations. Index annuities may not be appropriate for all individuals. There are no guarantees that income will keep up with or outpace inflation. In flat or down markets, you may not earn index interest. Principal can be reduced due to fees and withdrawals. Lifetime income features are generally optional and available at contract issue for an annual fee.
Income credits are added to the Income Base, the amount which lifetime income is based upon. The Income Base is not a contract value and cannot be withdrawn in part or as a lump sum. Rates listed above are subject to change prior to contract issuance. Please see the Owner Acknowledgment and Disclosure Statement for more information.
