More about the Advance Withdrawal Benefit

Offer your clients flexibility in a fixed immediate annuity

This feature provides a one-time advance on a portion of a client’s future income stream. Clients have the freedom and flexibility to use it as they choose: for travel, health-related expenses, a financial emergency — it’s up to them.

It is available with any Period Certain payout option, but a Life option with Period Certain is even more optimal because payout amounts decrease only for the years remaining in the Period Certain.

Income Today one time account withdrawal impact on income

In this example, once the guaranteed period is over, in the eleventh year annual payments jump back up for the remainder of the client’s life — to the payment level as if no withdrawal had been taken.

This is a hypothetical example for illustrative purposes only. It is not indicative of any particular investment or guarantee of future performance.

Advance Withdrawal Benefit (optional)

The Advance Withdrawal Benefit is available with Annuity Income Options that include a period certain guarantee.

Under the Advance Withdrawal Benefit, clients may take a one-time withdrawal at any time prior to the end of the guaranteed period certain. The amount available for withdrawal is 25%-75% of the Withdrawal Value (present value of the remaining income payments in the Period Certain). The minimum withdrawal is $1,000.

A withdrawal will reduce the amount of the annuity income payment for the remainder of the period certain. The reduction will be in direct proportion to the percentage of the withdrawal to the Withdrawal Value.

If a fixed Period Certain only option is selected, the income payments will stop at the end of the guaranteed period. If a Single or Joint Life option with a Period Certain is selected, the income payment amount at the end of the guaranteed period will return to the amount that would normally have been paid as if no withdrawal was made.

Death benefits vary by the Annuity Income Option selected
