Guarantees provided by annuities are subject to the financial strength of the issuing insurance company. Annuities are not FDIC or NCUA/NCUSIF insured; are not obligations or deposits of and are not guaranteed or underwritten by any bank, savings and loan, or credit union or its affiliates; and are unrelated to and not a condition of the provision or term of any banking service or activity.

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.

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.
