All contract and rider guarantees, including optional benefits and any fixed subaccount crediting rates or annuity payout rates, are backed by the claims-paying ability of the issuing life insurance company. They are not backed by the broker/dealer or insurance agency from or through which this annuity is purchased, by the insurance agency from which this annuity is purchased or any affiliates of those entities, and none makes any representations or guarantees regarding the claims-paying ability of the issuing life insurance company. Typically, variable annuities contain certain restrictions and limitations. In addition, early withdrawals may be subject to surrender charges and, if taken prior to age 59½, a 10% federal income tax penalty. Variable annuities are subject to investment risks, including possible loss of principal invested. Annuities contain certain restrictions and limitations. For costs and complete details, contact a financial professional.
Transfers or withdrawals during a Segment: If you transfer or withdraw all of a Segment’s value prior to the Segment Maturity Date, you may receive less than the Segment Investment. If you transfer or withdraw a portion of a Segment’s value prior to the Segment Maturity Date, the Segment Investment will be reduced by a pro rata amount, which may be greater than the dollar amount of the transfer or withdrawal, and as a result, your Segment Maturity Value may be less than if you had held the investment to maturity.
Please see the prospectus and read it carefully for more information, including Structured Capital Strategies® Income fees and charges.
The Variable Investment Options available in Structured Capital Strategies® Income are subject to market risk, including loss of principal. The investment results of these Variable Investment Options do not depend on the investment performance of a related index. It is not possible to invest directly in an index. Unlike an index fund, Structured Capital Strategies® Income provides a return at maturity designed to provide a combination of protection against certain decreases in the index and a limitation on participation in certain increases in the index. Structured Capital Strategies® Income does not involve an investment in any underlying portfolio. Instead, it is an obligation of Equitable Financial and Equitable America. The Segment Buffer protects you from some downside risk. If the negative return is in excess of the Segment Buffer, there is a risk of substantial loss of principal. If you would like a guarantee of principal, Equitable Financial offers other products that provide such guarantees. The level of risk you bear and your potential investment performance will differ depending on the investments you choose.
Please keep in mind that Equitable Financial, on advance notice to the client, may discontinue, suspend or change Segment offerings and contributions/transfers, or make other changes in contribution and transfer requirements and limitations. A Segment is an investment in a Segment Type, with a specific maturity date. The prospectus contains more information on these limitations and restrictions. Certain features and benefits described herein may not be available in all jurisdictions. In addition, some distributors may eliminate and/or limit the availability of certain features or options, based on annuitant issue age or other criteria. This page is not a complete description of the Structured Capital Strategies® Income variable annuity.
