Asset Protection and Growth Opportunity. You Deserve Both.
PruSecure® Fixed Indexed Annuity
You’ve worked hard for your money and want to protect and grow it for the future. But that can create a dilemma. Low-risk investments such as CDs and Treasury bonds offer little growth opportunity today, while investing in the stock market can be risky. But why should you have to sacrifice one for the other?
If you’re looking to protect your money from market loss and still want the potential to grow your money, the PruSecure Fixed Indexed Annuity offers you both.
If the index decreased by any amount at all, you lose nothing — whether you chose the cap rate or participation rate, you are protected by the floor.
If the index increased by 4%, an amount that is less than the cap rate of 5%, the interest credited would be 4%. Interest credited with the participation rate would be 35% of the 4% increase, which equals 1.4%.
If the index increased by 20% — which is greater than the cap rate of 5% — the interest credited would be 5%. Interest credited with the participation rate would be 35% of the 20% increase, which equals 7%.
* Because qualified retirement plans, IRAs and annuities offer a tax-deferral feature, you should carefully consider the other features, benefits, risks, and costs associated with an annuity before purchasing one in either a qualified plan or an IRA. Before purchasing an annuity, you should take full advantage of your 401(k) and other qualified plans.
- What is a fixed indexed annuity?
A fixed indexed annuity (FIA) is a tax-deferred financial tool designed for the long term. It offers a level of protection for your money against loss with the opportunity for it to grow based on the performance of a specific market index, or combination of indices. With a FIA, your money is not actually invested in any index, but rather may earn interest based on the index’s performance. There may typically be upper limits known as cap rates and participation rates, on the amount of potential interest credited in a given period, as well as a floor that offers downside protection. For complete information about the annuity, please refer to the Important Information Disclosure Statement PDF opens in a new window which is also available from your financial professional.
- Why does the company behind the annuity matter?
When the time comes for you to use the benefits that are offered by an annuity, it is important to remember that all guarantees are backed by the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company.
- Who can help me determine if an annuity is right for me?
Your financial professional can help you determine if an annuity is suitable for you. Prudential Annuities and its distributors and representatives do not provide tax, accounting, or legal advice. Please consult your own attorney or accountant when making important investment decisions. Prudential Annuities does not provide investment advice. The selections you choose together with your financial professional are all dependent on your investment goals and your risk tolerance.
- What happens if I need access to my money?
After the 1st contract year, you may withdraw up to 10% of the account value (based on the previous contract anniversary, after all index/interest credits are applied) without surrender charges or MVA. If you need more than the Free Withdrawal Amount, or want to take a withdrawal in the first year, you can withdraw as much of your account value as you need, but keep in mind that surrender charges and a Market Value Adjustment (MVA) will apply. If you make a full withdrawal of your annuity, you will receive the greater of your account value (minus any surrender charges and adjusted by any applicable MVA) and your Minimum Guaranteed Surrender Value. Also, it’s important to note that if you take a withdrawal or annuitize your contract, taxes will apply. The tax treatment will differ depending on whether you purchased your annuity with pre-tax (qualified) or after-tax (non-qualified) dollars. Please consult your tax advisor for more information.
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 taken during the surrender charge period, excluding any Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs), will be subject to any applicable surrender charges and a Market Value Adjustment (MVA).
- Does PruSecure charge fees?
One of the advantages of PruSecure is that there are no annual contract or administrative fees. However, if you withdraw any of your money during the first contract year or more than 10% of your money in any subsequent year during the surrender charge period, there may be a surrender charge. A positive or negative MVA may also apply.
- What are the limitations and restrictions I need to consider?
At the time you purchase your contract, you may select a 5- or 7-year surrender charge period, which is the amount of time you must wait until you can withdraw funds from your annuity without facing a penalty charge. Typically, the longer the surrender charge period, the higher the fixed rates and index-based cap rates and participation rates. During this period, if you withdraw any or all of the money from your annuity, surrender charges and a Market Value Adjustment (MVA) will apply. (See Important Information Disclosure Statement PDF opens in a new window for additional information about MVAs.)
In cases where the duration of your index term is shorter than the length of your surrender charge period, you may need to renew or reallocate your strategy selections one or more times before your surrender charge period ends. When you renew or reallocate, you may continue with the same strategy and allocation, or choose from the other strategies and terms available at that time.
