HOW FOUNDATIONS ADDRESSES VOLATILITY

Having the option to choose crediting strategies benchmarked against a Low Vol Index can be helpful, especially in periods of market turbulence. With the S&P 500® Low Vol Index Accounts, both uncapped strategies, your clients could participate in more of the index-linked gains than in capped accounts (annual spreads do apply). We have resources that explain how the Index is constructed, as well as hypothetical performance data for you to review.

The Security Benefit Foundations Annuity (form 5800 (11-10) and ICC10 5800 (11-10)), a fixed index flexible premium deferred annuity is issued by Security Benefit Life Insurance Company. Product features, limitations and availability may vary by state. In Idaho, Foundations is issued on form ICC10 5800 (11-10).

Bonus annuities may include changes to the elements used to determine the index interest credits or changes to the interest rate that are not included in similar annuities without a bonus. These changes may include lower current interest rates, higher surrender charges, longer surrender charge periods, lower participation rates or caps, higher spreads, or other changes. The amount of charges or reduction in interest credits may exceed the amount of the bonus.

Guarantees provided by annuities are subject to the financial strength of the issuing insurance company.

Fixed index annuities are not stock market investments and do not directly participate in any equity, bond, other security, or commodities investments. Indices do not include dividends paid on the underlying stocks and therefore do not reflect the total return of the underlying stocks. Neither an index nor any fixed index annuity is comparable to a direct investment in the equity, bond, other security, or commodities markets.
