Do you have very conservative clients who want to contribute to a 403(b)?

Key features
  • Consistent method for increasing assets for retirement without market participation 
  • Payroll deferral through an employer's 403(b) plan or automatic drafts from a bank account or an IRA 
    • 403(b) contributions tax deferred
    • Annual contribution limits set through IRA
  • Additional bonus rate to begin contract1 
  • Age 50+ Catch-up provision

The Total Interest Annuity can help your clients build their savings so their retirement plans won't be undone by a volatile market. It allows your clients to avoid the potential pitfalls of the markets by placing a portion of their retirement savings into an annuity that is separate from traditional retirement assets that fluctuate as financial markets shift. 

In addition to the guaranteed principal, we also offer two riders:

1. Surrender Charge Waiver for Early Retirement Rider (available only for 403(b) or Roth 403(b) contracts; not available in CT, MD, MA, TX, or WA)

If your clients meet the following qualifications, they can take withdrawals from their contracts without a surrender charge:

  • Minimum of 5 years in the contract
  • Minimum age of 55
  • Separation from service at or after age 55

2. Return of Purchase Payments Guarantee Rider (not available in TX, VT, or WA) 

  • Guarantees that the Cash Surrender Value of the contract will never be below the Purchase Payments made (less any previous withdrawals, premium tax due or paid, and rider charges deducted) 
  • Provides ability to withdraw in full all of the Purchase Payments2  

1The bonus rate is an additional interest rate applied to all contributions received within the first year of the annuity and is only credited for one year for each purchase. In lieu of the bonus rate for TX contracts, the first year current interest rate will include additional guaranteed interest equivalent to the current bonus rate. 

2If the applicable surrender charge is greater than the interest your client earned, no interest will be paid. If the interest earned is greater than the applicable surrender charge, your client will receive the interest due after payment of the surrender charge.
