A variable annuity is a long-term financial product designed for retirement purposes. Variable annuities are subject to market risk, including the possible loss of principal invested, and they have mortality and expense charges, account fees, investment management fees, administrative fees, charges for special contract features, and restrictions and limitations. Earnings are taxable as ordinary income when distributed and may be subject to a 10% additional tax if withdrawn before age 59½.
If clients are purchasing an annuity contract to fund an IRA or employer-sponsored retirement plan, they should understand that such annuities do not provide tax-deferral benefits beyond those already provided by the Internal Revenue Code.
Clients should carefully consider their investment objectives and the charges, risks and expenses, as stipulated in the prospectus, before investing. For a prospectus containing this and other information, a financial professional can call the Sales Desk at 888-517-9900. Please have clients read it carefully before investing or sending money.
