As with any investment vehicle, variable annuities and index variable annuities are subject to risk – including possible loss of principal. Investment returns and principal will fluctuate with market conditions so that contract values, upon distribution, may be worth more or less than the original cost.
Investing in an index variable annuity may be the answer for part of your overall retirement strategy. An index variable annuity offers a unique combination of features, including market participation through a variety of allocation options; tax-deferred growth opportunities; and optional protection benefits that can provide certain income and beneficiary guarantees for an additional cost.
Index variable annuities are subject to investment risk, including loss of principal, and contract values typically fluctuate daily.
Purchasing an annuity within a retirement plan that provides tax deferral under sections of the Internal Revenue Code results in no additional tax benefit. An annuity should be used to fund a qualified plan based upon the annuity’s features other than tax deferral. All annuity features, risks, limitations, and costs should be considered prior to purchasing an annuity within a tax-qualified retirement plan.
Withdrawals will reduce the contract value and the value of any protection benefits. Withdrawals taken within the contract withdrawal charge schedule will be subject to a withdrawal charge. All withdrawals are subject to ordinary income tax and, if taken prior to age 59½, may be subject to a 10% federal additional tax.
