ST. PAUL, Minn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Securian Financial has launched MultiOption® Momentum, an investment-only variable annuity (IOVA) offering a distinctive combination of both indexed and variable investment options in a tax-deferred, variable annuity.

Issued by Minnesota Life Insurance Company, MultiOption Momentum gives financial professionals a new, competitive choice to build retirement portfolios for their clients.

“MultiOption Momentum is our first IOVA. It is a very compelling product, providing customization, flexibility and the ability to build risk hedge, all in one product.

An annuity is intended to be a long-term, tax-deferred retirement vehicle. Earnings are taxable as ordinary income when distributed, and if withdrawn before age 59½, may be subject to a 10% federal tax penalty. If the annuity will fund an IRA or other tax qualified plan, the tax deferral feature offers no additional value. Qualified distributions from a Roth IRA are generally excluded from gross income, but taxes and penalties may apply to non-qualified distributions. Please consult a tax advisor for specific information. There are charges and expenses associated with annuities, such as deferred sales charges for early withdrawals. Variable annuities have additional expenses such as mortality and expense risk, administrative charges, investment management fees and rider fees. The variable subaccounts of variable annuities are subject to market fluctuation, investment risk and loss of principal.

MultiOption annuities and optional benefits may not be approved in all states and features may vary by state. Not available in New York. The guarantees in MultiOption annuities are subject to the financial strength and claims paying ability of Minnesota Life. The guarantees have no bearing on the performance of the variable investment options.

We reserve the right to limit or discontinue acceptance of future purchase payments after the contract is issued.  This may limit the ability to increase the contract value through additional purchase payments.  If an optional benefit is elected in the contract, this may also limit the ability to increase the value used to calculate the optional benefit. 

The indexes are not available for direct investment.
