1 The Income Base is the amount from which your withdrawals are calculated. It’s initially equal to your annuity contributions and can increase every year with income credits. Annual income credits are amounts added to your Income Base. The Income Base is not a contract value and cannot be withdrawn in part or in a lump sum.
Index annuities are not a direct investment in the stock market. They are long-term insurance products with guarantees backed by the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company. They provide the potential for interest to be credited based in part on the performance of the specified index, without the risk of loss of premium due to market downturns or fluctuations. Index annuities may not be appropriate for all individuals.
Withdrawals may be subject to federal and/or state income taxes. An additional 10% federal tax may apply if you make withdrawals or surrender your annuity before age 59½. Please consult your tax advisor regarding your specific situation.
Lifetime Income Plus Multiplier Flex is one of two guaranteed living benefit riders available in select Power Series Index Annuities for an annual fee of 1.0% of the Income Base. Only one rider may be elected per contract and cannot be changed after election. The Income Base is initially equal to the first eligible premium. The Income Base is adjusted for withdrawals (prior to activating the lifetime income benefit) and excess withdrawals (after activation and the first lifetime withdrawal) and is increased each time an eligible premium is made. Eligible premiums are all premiums made in the first 30 days of the contract. On each contract anniversary, the Income Base may be increased by any available income credit.
Guaranteed lifetime withdrawals are a percentage of the Income Base. This percentage varies from 2.90% to 5.75% based on the number of individuals covered under Lifetime Income Plus Multiplier Flex and their age at the time of activation and first lifetime withdrawal.
All contract and benefit guarantees, including any fixed account crediting rates or annuity rates, are backed by the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company. They are not backed by the broker/dealer from which this annuity is purchased.
