Competitive interest earnings. You can choose from five different plans, each offering a different first-year interest rate. Your annuity will earn interest at a rate that will never fall below the plan's guaranteed interest rate.
Tax advantages. A deferred annuity earns interest on a tax-deferred basis. Tax deferral puts you in control of your tax situation. You select when you want take income and pay taxes. If you so choose, you can reinvest your interest and defer paying taxes on the interest. If you want the income now, you can receive monthly checks that are equal to the accrued interest, or you can receive a fixed amount. You pay taxes only on the amount of income you withdraw. You can take the income now or later it's your choice.
Access. You never know when you are going to need some of your money. You will be able to withdraw money from your annuity at any time. Tax deferral puts you in charge of your income and taxes. Withdrawals are subject to applicable surrender charges, market value adjustments, or excess interest deductions, if any during the contract's early years. Withdrawals taken before age 59 1/2 may incur a 10% tax penalty.
Lifetime income. You may someday elect to "annuitize" your contract and begin receiving a guaranteed regular income for as long as you live (or for another predetermined length of time.)
