An innovative feature offering a level of control in times of volatility

Like that value? Lock it in.

Now you and your clients have the ability to react in times of volatility and lock in an index value once during each crediting period.

Using our Index Lock feature – available on select Allianz fixed index annuities and fixed index universal life insurance policies – clients can set the lock at any point when they’re comfortable with the current index value – and keep that index value for the entire crediting period, no matter what.

That gives them the reassurance of knowing they’ve locked in an index value and are no longer subject to market volatility in the period.

Discover how Index Lock sets us apart, and can provide greater control in a rapidly changing market environment.

1 Policy loans and withdrawals will reduce the available cash value and death benefit and may cause the policy to lapse, or affect guarantees against lapse. Withdrawals in excess of premiums paid will be subject to ordinary income tax. Additional premium payments may be required to keep the policy in force. In the event of a lapse, outstanding policy loans in excess of unrecovered cost basis will be subject to ordinary income tax. If a policy is a modified endowment contract (MEC), policy loans and withdrawals will be taxable as ordinary income to the extent there are earnings in the policy. If any of these features are exercised prior to age 59½ on a MEC, a 10% federal additional tax may be imposed. Tax laws are subject to change and you should consult a tax professional.

The Index Lock feature is available with select index allocation options.

Because the index lock occurs at the end of the business day, the index value used to determine interest credited may be higher or lower than the index value at the time of request.

When using sales material with clients, please ensure all applicable accompanying product brochures and/or marketing materials are presented.
