Market Value Adjusted Fixed Annuity1

Balancing growth with security is important, whether you're headed for retirement or you're already there. That's why our AccountMax single premium deferred annuity with a market value adjustment (MVA) offers both stability and growth potential in a single annuity product.

AccountMax combines guaranteed rate terms with the possibility for higher interest rates. Lock in a guaranteed, competitive interest rate for up to ten years, and earn credit at the end of your renewal period.

All of this, combined with an optional Enhanced Death Benefit, helps AccountMax provide the guarantees you need with the flexibility you're looking for.

Available Benefits

Security for your loved ones is paramount - the optional Enhanced Death Benefit Rider within AccountMax can help preserve the value of your annuity for your beneficiaries. This benefit offers additional protection to help offset any expenses that beneficiaries could incur after your death.

AccountMax also offers a market value adjustment (MVA) on withdrawals taken during the guarantee period - if you decide to make a withdrawal, your account's value will adjust depending on the interest rate offered at that time. If we offer higher interest rates, your account's value may be higher; if we offer lower interest rates, your account's value may be lower.
