Please note that variable annuities are long-term investments designed for retirement purposes.
In the Accumulation phase, they can help you build assets on a tax-deferred basis. In the Income phase, they can provide you with guaranteed income through standard or optional features. Guarantees are backed by the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurer. Variable annuities are subject to insurance related charges, including mortality and expense risk charges and administrative fees, as well as the total operating expenses of the underlying funds. Optional income guarantees are subject to additional fees, investment restrictions and other limitations. An investment in a variable annuity involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Your contract value when redeemed may be worth more or less than your original investment.
Annuities are designed for long-term retirement investing. Early withdrawals may be subject to withdrawal charges. Partial withdrawals may reduce benefits available under the contract, as well as the amount available upon a full surrender. Withdrawals of taxable amounts are subject to ordinary income tax and, if taken prior to age 59½, an additional 10% federal tax may apply. An investment in a variable annuity involves investment risk, including possible loss of principal. The contract, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the total amount invested. Tax-qualified plans, such as an IRA, 401(k), etc., are tax-deferred (and subject to required minimum distributions) regardless of whether or not they are funded with an annuity.
Variable annuities are sold by prospectus only. The prospectus contains the investment objectives, risks, fees, charges, expenses and other information regarding the contract and underlying funds, which should be considered carefully before investing. A prospectus may be obtained from your financial advisor or by calling 1-800-445-7862. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.
