With FlexGuard Income's index crediting strategies, client money is not actually invested in any index, but may earn interest based on the performance of the index.
FlexGuard Income also offers growth potential through a variable subaccount which can also be mixed and matched in any percentage. The variable subaccount does not offer downside protection through buffer levels.

Buffer options for 1 year of 3 and 6 year term options

During the Income Stage, you can only allocate to the 1-year Point-to-Point with Cap Strategy and the accompanying buffer levels.

Index-linked variable annuity products are complex insurance and investment vehicles and are long-term investments designed for retirement purposes. There is risk of loss of principal if negative index returns exceed the selected protection level. Gains or losses are assessed at the end of each term. Early withdrawals may result in a loss in addition to applicable surrender charges. Please reference the prospectus for information about the levels of protection available and other important product information

Index crediting strategies work with buffers to help grow and protect your savings and income

FlexGuard Income offers you the opportunity to choose your buffer level as well as your term length.

Partial downside protection is provided through the buffer where index losses within the buffer are protected. Index losses that exceed the buffer will result in a loss of Account Value.

The buffer will vary by the selected strategy, term length, and index elected. Not all term and buffer options are available for each index crediting strategy.

Please note that when you allocate to an Index Strategy that is linked to the performance of an ETF, you are not investing in the ETF. Index-based ETFs seek to track the investment results of a specific market index. Due to a variety of factors, including the fees and expenses associated with an ETF, an ETF’s performance may not fully replicate or may, in certain circumstances, diverge significantly from the performance of the underlying index. This potential divergence between the ETF and the specific market index is known as tracking error.

Hypothetical example for illustrative purposes. Assumes the Account was held for the full Index Strategy Term and subsequent renewed terms where applicable. Assumes no withdrawals during the Savings Stage. Past performance does not guarantee future results. Your actual results will vary.

Please speak with a financial professional for a full illustration.
 

Performance Disclosure

These results were calculated using annual historical index returns and current strategy rates as of the run date of the illustration, which we assumed did not change at any time during the time period illustrated.

Index Strategy credits are based on current strategy rates at time of the illustration run date and assumed were renewed at those rates for the time period displayed within this illustration. Renewal Cap Rates, Step Rates, and Participation Rates may be higher or lower than the initial rates but will never be less than the Guaranteed Minimum Rates. Tier Levels may be higher or lower than the initial Tier Level but will never be higher than the Guaranteed Maximum Tier Level. Subsequent rates and Tier Levels may differ from the rates and Tier Levels used for new contracts or for other contracts issued at different times.

This interactive illustration is hypothetical and based on the index crediting strategy(ies) selected. Index Strategy credits will fluctuate, and may be negative, so that the Account Value, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original purchase amount. If a withdrawal is taken from an Index Strategy during the term period, the Interim Value will apply; however it is not illustrated.

We assess a yearly benefit charge of 1.45%. For Index Strategy Terms longer than one year, the values illustrated prior to the Index Strategy End Date reflect the Index Strategy Base as reduced by any benefit charge as we are not illustrating Interim Values.

Variable investment options are offered with this product however are not included for illustration purposes. Please refer to the product prospectus for fund investment strategies and fee information.

The interactive illustration does not reflect the effect of income taxes, penalty taxes, and premium taxes. Withdrawals or surrenders may be subject to contingent deferred sales charges and Interim Value of the index strategies. If the variable investment options are elected, the contract is subject to mortality, expense, and administration charges of 1.30%, and any applicable underlying fund expenses. Withdrawals and distributions of taxable amounts are subject to ordinary income tax and, if made prior to age 59½, may be subject to an additional 10% federal income tax penalty, sometimes referred to as an additional income tax. Withdrawals reduce the Account Value and death benefits.

 

Methodology Disclosure

The Down/Up Market scenarios are hypothetical returns based upon a common return history of calendar year end returns from 2001-Current. These scenarios use an arithmetic average return of all the indices available on the product, to determine the return applicable to the contract.

Down Market: The Down Market is the 10-year period during which the annual average return of all indices resulted in the lowest compounded total return over the 10-year period for which there was common return history. The time period used to calculate the applicable Down Market returns is 2001-2010 based on common history of all available indices.

Up Market: The Up Market is the 10-year period during which the annual average return of all indices resulted in the highest compounded total return over the 10-year period for which there was common return history. The time period used to calculate the applicable Up Market returns is 2011-2020 based on common history of all available indices.

If the illustrated duration extends beyond 10 years, the 10-year Down and Up Market returns are repeated until the conclusion of the illustration.

  • Annuity Year – The twelve-month period beginning on the Issue Date and continuing through and including the day immediately preceding the first anniversary of the Issue Date. Subsequent Annuity Years begin on the anniversary of the Issue Date and continue through and include the day immediately preceding the next anniversary of the Issue Date.

  • Death Benefit – Return-of-premium death benefit is available on all contracts for no additional charge. It is equal to the greater of: 1) Account Value: The money in the account at the time of death or 2) Purchase Payments: The total of the payments the client made since the issue date, reduced proportionally by any withdrawals.
  • Excess Income – All or any portion of an Income Withdrawal that causes cumulative withdrawals to exceed the Annual Income Amount, including any applicable Contingent Deferred Sales Charge, in an Annuity Year during the Income Stage. Each withdrawal of Excess Income proportionally reduces the Annual Income Amount for future years.
  • Free Withdrawal Amount – The amount of money that can be withdrawn from the annuity each year during the surrender charge period, without incurring a surrender charge. This amount is equal to 10% of the Account Value the previous anniversary after the first year. Withdrawals greater than the Free Withdrawal are subject to Contingent Deferred Sales Charge.
  • Income Deferral Rate (also referred to as “deferral credit”) – An annual percentage added to the Income Percentage each year during the Savings Stage until the Income Effective Date. The Income Deferral Rate is based on the age of the Protected Life or the younger of the Joint Protected Lives on the Index Effective Date and does not change for the life of the Contract.
  • Income Effective Date – The date the client elects to start the Income Stage under the Benefit. The Income Effective Date must be on an Index Anniversary Date.
  • Income Percentage – The rate applied to determine the initial Annual Income Amount. The Income Percentage is based on the age of the Protected Life, or the younger of the Joint Protected Lives on the Index Effective Date. Prior to the Income Effective Date, the Income Percentage includes any applicable Income Deferral Rate credits. If the Joint Protected Life has been added, changed, or removed before the Income Effective Date, the Annual Income Amount will be based on the applicable Income Percentage and Income Deferral Rate based on the younger of the Protected Life or Joint Protected Lives as of the Index Effective Date.

  • Index Credit – The amount the Owner receives on an Index Strategy End Date based on the Index Return and the Index Strategy. The Index Credit can be negative, meaning the Owner can lose principal and prior earnings. Index Effective Date – The first day of the first Index Strategy allocation.
  • Index Strategy (also referred to as "index crediting strategy") – An allocation option that provides a return based on the underlying Index associated with the Strategy, Buffer, and Index Strategy Term. A contract Owner does not directly participate in an Index.
  • Index Strategy End Date – The last day of an Index Strategy Term. This is the day any Index Return would be credited to the Index Strategy, if applicable.
  • Index Strategy Start Date – The first day of an Index Strategy Term.

  • Owner – An eligible entity or person named as having ownership rights in relation to the annuity.
  • Participation Rate – The percentage of any Index increase that will be used in calculating the Index Credit at the end of an Index Strategy Term for the Tiered Participation Rate Index Strategy or the Step Rate Plus Index Strategy during the Savings Stage.

  • Savings Stage – The period of time before the Income Effective Date and begins on the Issue Date of the contract.
  • Step Rate – The declared rate that may be credited to amounts allocated to the Step Rate Plus Index Strategy for any given Index Strategy Term if the Index Return is between zero and the declared Step Rate during the Savings Stage. A different Step Rate may be declared for different Indices.
  • Surrender Charge – A type of charge that may be deducted when a surrender or partial withdrawal from the annuity occurs that is greater than the Withdrawal Amount.
  • Tier Level – The declared Index Return that is used to determine which Participation Rate tier applies in the calculation of Index Credit for Tier Level 1 and Tier Level 2 in the Tiered Participation Rate Index Strategy during the Savings Stage.
