Advantage

Fixed Indexed Annuity

Having choices gives you the opportunity to shape your future. The Advantage fixed indexed annuity gives you both choice and potential in one contract that can help prepare your path to retirement security. With growth potential in six allocation options — three of them linked in part to market indexes — you can allocate your premium among all these choices, or just a few. It's up to you.

Key Features

Split premium among six allocation options to help your money grow.
Allocation options include two linked to the S&P 500® Index, three linked to a custom-designed GS Momentum Builder® Multi-Asset Class Index from Goldman Sachs, and a fixed interest option.
Interest rates can never be negative, even if the index goes down.
Once it's credited, interest can also never be lost due to index decline.
Optional Guaranteed Lifetime Withdrawal Benefit1.
