Protection and growth opportunity in one

SurePathSM Fixed Indexed Annuity

Your clients have worked hard for their money and want to protect and grow it for the future. But that can create a dilemma. Low-risk investments today offer little growth opportunity, while investing in the stock market can be risky. But why should your clients have to sacrifice one for the other?

SurePath Fixed Indexed Annuity offers clients both protection from market volatility and opportunity for growth.

How SurePath Works

  • SurePath offers two different ways for your clients to potentially grow their money: an “index-based” strategy and a “fixed rate” strategy. You and your client decide the percentage of their money to allocate to each and the term of each index-based strategy.

  • Money in the fixed rate strategy is guaranteed to grow at a predetermined interest rate for a period of one year. Funds allocated to the index-based strategies have the potential to grow based on the performance of their chosen indices, comparing the value on the first day to the value on the last day of their 1- or 3-year term. We call this “point-to-point” crediting.
  • At the time your clients purchase a contract, they select a 7- or 10-year surrender charge period, which is the amount of time they must wait until they can withdraw funds from the annuity without facing a potential penalty charge.

  • Any withdrawal taken during an index term will not be eligible to receive interest at the end of the index term. Withdrawals taken during the surrender charge period may be subject to surrender charges and a Market Value Adjustment.

  • Upon renewal or reallocation at the end of a term, your clients may continue with the same strategy and allocation, or choose from the other strategies and terms available at that time.

Example: How Your Clients’ Money Can Grow

Your clients' money is not actually invested in any index, but may earn interest based on the index’s performance:

  • The cap rate is the maximum amount of interest that can be credited during a specific index term.
  • The participation rate is the percentage of any index increase used to calculate the interest that will be credited for a specific index term.
  • A floor offers 100% downside protection in the event of a market loss.

 

In this example the cap rate is 5% and the participation rate is 35%. The floor is always zero.

Year 1

If the index decreases by any amount

If the index decreased by any amount at all, your client loses nothing – whether they choose the cap rate or the participation rate – as they are protected by the floor.

Year 2

If we assume a 4% index increase:

  • The cap rate would create 4% interest credited.
  • The participation rate would create 1.40% interest credited (35% x 4%).
Year 3

If the index increased by 20%:

  • The cap would create 5% interest credited.
  • The participation rate would create 7% interest credited (35% x 20%).

The power of tax deferral with SurePath

  • Your clients' account value can earn interest
  • Their interest can earn interest
  • They earn interest on the money they may have otherwise paid taxes on

This chart shows how a tax-deferred investment of $100,000 can grow over time when compared to a taxable investment.

Hypothetical chart showing 5% growth of a $100,000 investment over 20 years. Tax-deferred investment grows to $265,330 ($225,651 after 24% tax) and taxable investment at 24% annual tax rate would grow to $210,937. Tax-deferred growth helps accumulate an additional $14,814 after taxes are paid, growing to $225,651.

Assumptions: This hypothetical example is for illustrative purposes only. It assumes 5% annual growth for 20 years. The tax-deferred (after tax) account assumes 24% in taxes are withdrawn in a lump sum at the end of 20 years. The taxable account assumes 24% in taxes are withdrawn at the end of every year. Tax-deferred accounts are subject to ordinary income tax at the time of withdrawals. The hypothetical example does not reflect a specific annuity or an actual account value. It does not include any fees or expenses which would lower performance.
Clients purchasing an annuity through a tax-advantaged retirement plan (such as an Individual Retirement Account or 401(k) plan) will get no additional tax advantage through the annuity itself.

Free Withdrawals

After the first contract year, clients 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.

Annuities are issued by Prudential Annuities Life Assurance Corporation (PALAC) located in Shelton, CT (main office). PALAC, a Prudential Financial company, is solely responsible for its own financial condition and contractual obligations. Prudential Annuities is a business of Prudential Financial, Inc.

All references to guarantees, including the benefit payment obligations arising under the annuity contract guarantees, rider guarantees, optional benefits, any fixed account crediting rates, index-based interest crediting or annuity payout rates are backed by the claims-paying ability of Prudential Annuities Life Assurance Corporation.

A fixed indexed annuity (FIA) is a tax-deferred financial tool designed for the long term. It offers a level of protection for your clients' 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 clients' money is not actually invested in any index, but rather may earn interest based on the index's performance. Clients have the option to allocate money into a strategy based on a cap rate or a participation rate. The cap rate is the maximum amount of interest that can be credited during a specific index term. The participation rate is the percentage of any index increase used to calculate the interest that will be credited for a specific index term(s). Initial cap rates and participations rates are set at the time you purchase your contract, but may change after the completion of the index term(s). For complete information about the annuity, please refer to the Important Information Disclosure Statement PDF opens in a new window.

Availability subject to state approvals, licensing and firm agreements.

Please note that withdrawals are not eligible for any future credits.
