Variable annuities are long-term financial products 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 Earnings are taxable as ordinary income when distributed and may be subject to a 10% additional tax if withdrawn before age 59 ½. Optional benefits are available for an extra charge in addition to the ongoing fees and expenses of the variable annuity.
Withdrawals from annuities are subject to normal income tax treatment and if taken prior to age 59, may be subject to an additional 10% federal income tax penalty. Withdrawals may also be subject to a contractual withdrawal charge.
Annuities contain certain limitations and restrictions. For costs and complete details contact a financial professional.
If you are purchasing an annuity contract as an Individual Retirement Annuity (IRA), you should be aware that such annuities do not provide tax-deferral benefits beyond those already provided by the Internal Revenue Code. Before purchasing one of these annuities, you should consider whether its features and benefits beyond tax deferral meet your needs and goals. You may also want to consider the relative features, benefits and costs of these annuities with any other investment that you may use in connection with your retirement plan or arrangement.
Please consider the charges, risk, expenses, and investment objectives carefully before purchasing a variable annuity.
