Rate Guarantees - 3, 5, or 7 Years
Initial Rate Guarantee Period
Your client may choose a 3, 5 or 7-year initial interest rate guarantee period and receive the rate in effect at the time they buy the annuity for the entire length of the guarantee period. Interest is calculated and credited daily. At the end of the term, they may withdraw their money or automatically start a new guaranteed-rate period.
Subsequent Rate Guarantee Period
If your client chooses to continue their annuity, a new interest rate guarantee period and surrender-charge period automatically begins at the end of the initial term, then again at the end of each subsequent term.* All subsequent terms will be for the same duration as their initial guarantee period.
During the first 30 days of each subsequent term, your client may withdraw some or all of their funds without a surrender charge.
The Standard sets a new interest rate at the beginning of each subsequent rate guarantee period, and we guarantee the rate for that period. The new rate may be higher or lower than the interest rate of the initial rate guarantee period.
Optional: Principal Guarantee
After day one, your payout will never be less than the total premium you paid, minus any withdrawals or loans taken. You must select this option at purchase in order to have this feature.
Surrender Periods with Flexible Withdrawal Options
Surrender-charge periods match the rate guarantee periods. For example, if your client selected a Total Choice Annuity 3, all subsequent guarantee periods will be 3 years.
At the end of each guarantee period, new interest rate guarantee periods and surrender-charge periods automatically begin.* During the first 30 days of each subsequent surrender-charge period, your client may withdraw some or all of their funds without a surrender charge. In addition, the Total Choice Annuity offers withdrawal options without a surrender charge to help in certain situations.
