Benefits of Investing in Annuities

The only investment product that can provide guaranteed income for life, Annuities are contracts between investors and insurance companies. Most annuities can grow tax-deferred and then provide regular payments for a set time period or for life. Some annuities make the same payment no matter what happens in the market. You can receive a steady stream of income, which can help you maintain your standard of living and enjoy the lifestyle you want.

1An insurer's financial strength rating represents an opinion by the issuing agency regarding the ability of an insurance company to meet its financial obligations to its policyholders and contract holders. A rating is an opinion of the rating agency only, and not a statement of fact or recommendation to purchase, sell or hold any security, policy or contract. These ratings do not imply approval of our products and do not reflect any indication of their performance.

Annuities are long-term investments designed for retirement purposes. Withdrawals of taxable amounts are subject to income tax and, if taken prior to age 59½, a 10% federal tax penalty may apply. Early withdrawals may be subject to withdrawal charges. Optional riders are available at an additional cost. All guarantees are based on the claims-paying ability of the insurer. An annuity is typically a tax-deferred investment. Holding an annuity in an IRA or other qualified account offers no additional tax benefit. Therefore, an annuity should be used to fund an IRA or qualified plan for annuity features other than tax deferral. Product features and availability vary by state. Restrictions and limitations may apply.

Investors should carefully consider a variable annuity's risks, charges, limitations, and expenses, as well as the risks, charges, expenses, and investment objectives of the underlying investment options.
