Security Benefit helps you to and through retirement with the industry's most competitive annuities, retirement plans and mutual fund products.

TOPEKA, KS — January 16, 2018 — Security Benefit Life Insurance Company (SBL), a leader in the U.S. retirement savings market, today announced the launch of its RateTrack Plus, a floating rate annuity that includes an income benefit and is designed to help clients participate in a rising interest rate environment.

 

RateTrack Plus features a unique interest-crediting method, an income benefit that guarantees income for life and a four-percent bonus on the purchase payment. Interest on the account value is calculated by combining a fixed interest rate with a floating rate, the 3 Month ICE LIBOR USD Rate, an interest rate that has historically closely tracked the Federal Funds Rate. The unique crediting method then carries over to the income benefit, in addition to a guaranteed annual roll-up to the benefit base, to allow contract holders to automatically take advantage of rising rates for their retirement income.

 

“For more than 125 years, Security Benefit’s business has been built on providing innovative solutions that meet clients’ needs,” said Doug Wolff, President of SBL. “For financial representatives and their clients who believe interest rates will increase over the next several years, and who also want the security of guaranteed lifetime income, RateTrack Plus is an attractive option.”

 

The launch of RateTrack Plus follows the success of Security Benefit’s RateTrack® Annuity, which has been a top selling fixed annuity since it debuted in March 2016, according to data from Beacon Research, selling more than $1 billion in its first year. RateTrack Plus adds an income component to RateTrack’s innovative interest-crediting method that increases the income benefit roll-up as interest rates rise.
