Our index variable annuities offer you the ability to combine traditional variable options with multiple index strategies. Each index option is the combination of a crediting method (also called an index strategy), the index, and the time period for measuring index performance (the term). To understand what makes each index strategy unique and the kind of financial objectives it may suit, our series of explainer videos may be a good place to start.

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.
As with any investment vehicle, 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.
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.
