Not all products, features and optional benefits are available from all selling firms or broker dealers.
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 Earnings are taxable as ordinary income when distributed, and if withdrawn before age 59½, may be subject to a 10% federal tax penalty.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. There are charges and expenses associated with annuities, such as surrender or 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 annuities are subject to market fluctuation, investment risk and loss of principal.
Not a deposit - Not FDIC/NCUA insured - Not insured by any federal government agency - Not guaranteed by any bank or credit union - May go down in value.
Guarantees are subject to the financial strength and claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company. The guarantees have no bearing on the variable investment performance.
