A fixed index annuity allows you to:

Take advantage of market growth

You can benefit from market growth by choosing the potential to earn interest based on positive changes in the market indexes you're tracking. Or, choose to earn interest at a consistent rate that's established at the beginning of each contract year. (Or do both!)

Protect your money if the market drops

Because your money is not actually invested in the market, it's never at risk of losing value due to drops in the market (although rider fees can reduce your value). Any interest you earn is locked in, and can't be lost to market volatility. (Wouldn't it have been nice to have this kind of protection during the market plunge of 2008?)

Death BenefitsA family tree

Leave a legacy

If you die before you start receiving annuity payments, your beneficiary(ies) will receive the value of your annuity.
