1. An individual may not purchase this annuity if they are currently in a nursing home, skilled nursing facility or unable to perform any one of the six Activities of Daily Living.
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 Earnings are taxable as ordinary income when distributed, and if withdrawn before age 59½, may be subject to a 10% federal tax penalty.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. Variable sub accounts of annuities are subject to market fluctuation, investment risk and loss of principal.
The SecureLink Chronic Illness Access fixed indexed annuity and Accelerated Death Benefit are not long-term care insurance. They are not a qualified benefit under the Internal Revenue Code. An individual may not purchase this annuity if they are currently in a nursing home, skilled nursing facility or unable to perform any one of the six ADLs. The Accelerated Death Benefit is automatically included in every contract and provides an option to accelerate death benefit proceeds in the event that the owner becomes chronically or terminally ill.
Please keep in mind that the primary reason to purchase life insurance product is the death benefit.
Life insurance products contain charges, such as Cost of Insurance Charge, Cash Extra Charge, and Additional Agreements Charge (which we refer to as mortality charges), and Premium Charge, Monthly Policy Charge, Policy Issue Charge, Transaction Charge, Index Segment Charge, and Surrender Charge (which we refer to as expense charges). These charges may increase over time, and these policies may contain restrictions, such as surrender periods. Policyholders could lose money in these products.
Insurance policy guarantees are subject to the claims-paying ability of the issuing life insurance company. Some products and optional features may not be available in all states and features may vary by state.
