MYGA BENEFITS

 

Guaranteed Interest Rates

Your premium starts earning interest immediately based on our competitive, guaranteed interest rate.

 

Tax-Deferred Growth

You only pay income tax when you begin taking withdrawals.

 

Access Your Money

Beginning the first year, you may withdraw up to 15% of your annuity value free of charge, depending on the annuity product chosen.

 

 

Leave a Legacy

Leave a legacy for your beneficiaries and avoid probate. In the event of your death, and depending on the annuity product chosen, your beneficiaries will receive your full annuity value.

 

Choose Your Guarantee Period

Choose a guarantee period that fits your financial needs and goals. Our MYGA annuities offer a range of guarantee periods from 3 to 7 years.

 

No Administrative Fees or Charges

There are no set-up or administrative charges. Your single premium accumulates interest immediately when the contract begins.

 

 

 

IMMEDIATE ANNUITY BENEFITS

 

Secure Your Future

We guarantee to pay you a specified income based on the payout option of your choice. Your premium payment is amortized over a period using an interest rate, which results in a payment of interest and principal.

 

Tax Free Return of Principal

You receive income payments that are part principal and part interest. If you have a non-qualified annuity, you only pay taxes on the interest.
