Shield

Crediting based on index performance offers protection from negative market performance since interest credited can never be less than zero.

View indexed options

The investment performance of variable investment options is not guaranteed, and can decrease in value. The indexes are not available for direct investment, and crediting is subject to the declared cap and/or participation rate. The indexed accounts are not available with the Premier Protector optional death benefit.

Tax efficiencies

Keep more of your clients’ money working for them

When compared to placing assets in separate investment vehicles, having variable investment options and indexed accounts together in one MultiOption Momentum contract provides clients with impactful tax benefits:

  • Ability to make investment changes without triggering a taxable event
  • No trade fees since the variable investment options and indexed accounts are all in one contract
  • Tax deferral keeps more of your client’s money in their contract and compounding over time

Earnings are taxable as ordinary income when distributed. If the annuity will fund an IRA or other tax-qualified plan, the tax deferral feature offers no additional value.

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 Earnings are taxable as ordinary income when distributed, and if withdrawn before age 59½, may be subject to a 10% federal tax penalty.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 sub-accounts of variable annuities are subject to market fluctuation, investment risk and loss of principal.

Some products and optional features may not be available in all states and features may vary by state. Optional benefits are available for an additional cost in a variable annuity. Not all products, features and optional benefits are available from all selling broker dealers and certain products/benefits may not be combined. Please consult with your firm before providing any products/services or materials listed here.

The guarantees are subject to the financial strength and claims-paying ability of Minnesota Life. The guarantees have no bearing on performance of the variable investment options. We reserve the right to limit or discontinue acceptance of future purchase payments after the contract is issued.

For Indexed Accounts, the Cap(s), Participation Rate(s), and/or Fixed Interest Rate for the initial Crediting Period are shown in the contract at issue. For each subsequent Crediting Period, rates will be declared at the beginning of the Crediting Period and will be guaranteed for the duration of the applicable period. Rates are subject to the maximums and/or minimums as stated in the contract.
