Introducing: Fixed Index Annuities (FIAs) from Western United Life Assurance, a ManhattanLife Company

We're strengthening our presence in the retirement market with our two new Fixed Index Annuities (FIAs).

With only one-fourth of Americans projected to have enough saved to maintain their lifestyle in retirement, reliable and trustworthy retirement income options are increasingly more important. Enter our Fixed Index Annuities (FIAs). Designed to meet the needs of risk-averse savers who still want access to the growth potential in the stock market, our new FIA products will help us offer a more diverse portfolio of options to our consumers.

FIAs offer a rate of return tied to the stock market but with principal protection. That means that the contract funds increase when the market index increases but won’t decrease even if the market drops. It’s like bowling in the bumper lane. No matter what happens you know your money won’t go in the gutter. In addition to index-linked growth, our FIAs also offer a guaranteed growth strategy to help mitigate exposure to market risk.

We’re launching two FIAs this month: Western United Life New Horizon and Western United Life New Horizon Plus, both available with either a 7- or 10-year surrender charge period. With our FIAs, contract owners can count on:

  • Balance of protection and growth
  • Tax-deferred growth
  • Flexibility - choose what portion of your funds will grow at a fixed rate and what portion will grow based on the S&P 500®
  • More opportunity for growth than with a traditional fixed annuity
  • Surrender charge waivers if annuitant is confined to a nursing home or diagnosed with a terminal illness

Western United Life New Horizon and the Western United Life New Horizon Plus are available for sale in 42 states* and are issued by Western United Life Assurance Company (WULA) domiciled in the state of Washington.
