This tool creates a hypothetical chart to help you see how fixed index annuities (FIAs) and fixed index universal life (FIUL) allocation options and market indexes can work differently in different years and a variety of market conditions. The location of the colored boxes on each chart is based on the actual historical changes for the allocation options and raw indexes for each individual product selected and each calendar year shown. The colored boxes are sorted in descending order. Allocation options assume current caps, spreads, floors or participation rates. The lowest possible allocation interest is 0%. See our rate page for current caps, spreads, and participation rates.

You should carefully consider your allocation options for any FIA or FIUL product based on your overall financial strategy. FIAs and FIUL policies involve surrender charges or other early withdrawal penalties, which may result in a loss of principal if you surrender your product prematurely. Although an external index may affect your interest credited, the contract does not directly participate in any equity or fixed income investments. You are not buying shares in an index. The index value does not include the dividends paid on the equity investments underlying any equity index and dividends are not reflected in the interest credited to your contract. Interest paid on the fixed income investments underlying any bond index, however, are reflected in the index value which impacts the interest credited to your contract.

It’s important to remember that no single allocation option consistently delivers the most interest in every situation.
