We’re Ready to Help You Sell in 2019

Happy New Year from The Standard’s annuity sales team! We’ve seen an incredible amount of growth and volatility in the stock market. One way to mitigate those ups and downs – and still participate in some of those gains – is with fixed index annuities like our Index Select Annuity.

Enhanced ISA Marketing Materials Ready to Use in Nevada and Oregon

Marketing materials for the enhanced Index Select Annuity 5, 7 and 10 are now available to use with consumers in Nevada and Oregon.

Offer a Beneficiary Review Now

Offering a beneficiary review provides a chance to check in with current or prospective clients to ensure that beneficiary designations match their wishes. This type of review may also lead you to new deferred and immediate annuity sales opportunities.

RMD Notices Will Be in the Mail Soon

It’s January, and that means we’ll be mailing Required Minimum Distribution Notifications by the end of the month. We’ll be notifying all owners of qualified deferred annuity contracts who will attain age 70½ in 2019 or are already of RMD age.

Our Focus on Giving

Each year, employees at The Standard give to causes, volunteer their time and help their communities in other ways. In the spirit of the giving season, learn more about our annual Employee Giving Campaign.
