Available with Nassau Growth Annuity

Nassau Growth Annuity provides your client the option to select from one of four optional guaranteed lifetime income riders, each available for an additional fee of either 0.25% or 0.95%.2 An income benefit base is set at the contract value at issue. The income benefit base is used to determine the amount of your client’s guaranteed income payment and has the potential to grow over time.3

Add Performance-Based Annual Growth. All four riders include features to boost potential income payments through a 150% performance-based annual roll-up.4

Consider Adding Guaranteed Growth. The Amplified Income Plus and Amplified Income Plus with Rising Income Opportunity (RIO) riders guarantee that your client’s Income Benefit Base continues to grow by an additional 3% for up to 15 years or upon rider exercise.5

Select the Steady Income or Rising Income Opportunity. Amplified Income and Amplified Income Plus provide a steady guaranteed income amount once exercised. These riders provide a higher initial income benefit compared to the RIO options. The Amplified Income with RIO and Amplified Income Plus with RIO provide the opportunity for income payments to increase after rider exercise. These riders provide a lower initial income benefit compared to the steady income options, but with the opportunity to receive potentially higher income payments in the future based on the contract's performance.

Begin Income When the Time is Right. When your client exercises their rider, the guaranteed lifetime income payment will be equal to the income benefit base multiplied by a withdrawal factor based on the age at issue and age at rider exercise of the youngest covered person, single or spousal option, and rider elected. If your client has elected the Amplified Income with RIO or Amplified Income Plus with RIO their income benefit base has the potential to grow based on the contract’s performance for 15 years after contract issuance, regardless of when their rider is exercised.

 GLWB Rider Supplement

1 Available for issue age 80 and below. Amplified Income and Amplified Income Plus riders are currently not available in California. Additional state variations may apply. See the Rider Disclosure for details.

2 Annual rider fees are calculated as a percentage of the income benefit base and deducted from the contract value. The amount deducted for the rider fee will grow as the income benefit base grows. The rider fee may increase after the 15th contract anniversary, up to the maximum set forth in the contract.

3 The Income Benefit Base is a calculated value used solely to determine the guaranteed lifetime income payment and rider fee and is not available for withdrawal. Prior to exercising the rider, your client can help to maximize their potential guaranteed lifetime income payment by minimizing withdrawals as all withdrawals, including free withdrawals and Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs), are taken from the annuity’s contract value and will also reduce the Income Benefit Base.

4 For all riders, on each contract anniversary 150% of the contract’s growth, net of strategy fees, but no less than zero, will be added to the Income Benefit Base. For the Amplified Income and Amplified Income Plus riders, this roll-up ends after 15 years or until your client exercises their rider, whichever comes first. For the Amplified Income with RIO and Amplified Income Plus with RIO riders, this roll-up ends on the 15th contract anniversary.

5 The income benefit base will grow at an annual rate equal to 3% of the initial income benefit base, adjusted for any withdrawals, for up to 15 years or until rider exercise (if sooner).

Income Strategy Riders

One Rider Must be Selected with Personal Income Annuity® (PIA)
Rider Selection Optional for Personal Protection Choice® (PPC). If Selected, Must Be Combined with Family and/or Care Protection Option

The Income Strategy rider on PIA and the Income Protection Benefit on PPC offer two options: Today and Tomorrow.6 They offer access to guaranteed income payments of a specific amount every year for life once exercised, if certain conditions are met, as well as growth of the potential Income Benefit amount when your client waits to exercise the rider. At issue, an income benefit base is set that equals the single premium.7

Generally, the Today riders are for someone who plans to begin guaranteed income payments soon after issue. When issued, the Income Benefit Base is immediately increased by a 30% Income Benefit Base Bonus. If your client does not exercise the rider or take any withdrawals, the cumulative growth in the Income Benefit Base will be 37.5% after one Contract Year and 45% after two Contract Years. The Tomorrow riders are typically for someone who plans to wait before beginning guaranteed income payments. It includes a Benefit Base Roll-Up equal to 14% in years 1-10, but does not have an Income Benefit Base Bonus.

Upon exercise, the guaranteed amount your client will be able to withdraw each year is called the Annual Benefit Amount (ABA). The ABA is a percentage of the contract’s Income Benefit Base. To determine the ABA, multiply the Income Benefit Base by the appropriate ABA percentage based on the age at issue and age at rider exercise of the youngest covered person, single or spousal option, and rider elected.

The Income Strategy rider on PIA has an additional annual fee equal to 0.95% of the Income Benefit Base. The additional fee on the Income Protection Benefit on PPC varies. The Income Protection Benefit must be selected in combination with either the Care and/or Family Protection benefit. If the Family Protection Benefit is selected in any combination, the total annual rider fee is 1.15% of the benefit base. The total annual rider fee is 0.95% if only the Care Protection Benefit is selected.

6 Rider is elected at the time of contract and involves an additional fee (a percentage of your benefit base deducted annually from contract value). Lifetime payment guarantees are based on the claims-paying ability of the insurance company, and only payments, not contract values, are guaranteed.

7 The Income Benefit Base is a calculated value used solely to determine the guaranteed lifetime income payment and rider fee and is not available for withdrawal. Prior to exercising the rider, your client can help to maximize their potential guaranteed lifetime income payment by minimizing withdrawals as all withdrawals, including free withdrawals and Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs), are taken from the annuity’s contract value and will also reduce the Income Benefit Base.

Available Rider Combination Option with Personal Protection Choice

The Family Protection Benefit provides a guaranteed death benefit that may exceed the death benefit provided by your client’s base annuity contract.8 This death benefit will grow each year until your client exercises either the income or care protection benefit, if elected, of this rider. It is also payable to the designated beneficiary in a lump sum upon the death of the covered person or the death of the surviving covered person.

The Family Protection Benefit Base is the guaranteed death benefit and used to determine the rider fee. It has no cash value and cannot be withdrawn from the annuity. On the day the contract is issued, the Family Protection Benefit Base is equal to the premium. The Family Protection Benefit Base grows each year until your client exercises one of the benefits of this rider.9

The roll up amount is equal to the applicable roll up rate multiplied by the initial Family Protection Benefit Base. The roll-up amount is based on attained age of the oldest covered person:

Up to age 70: 10%
Age 71-85: 5%

Roll-ups will be credited annually for up to 10 years, or until the oldest covered person reaches age 85, whichever is first.

With PPC, the Family Protection Benefit must be selected with the Income Protection Benefit and optionally with the Care Protection Benefit. If the Family Protection Benefit is selected in any combination, the total rider fee is 1.15%.

8 The death benefit is not life insurance and is includable in ordinary taxable income to the named beneficiaries when paid.

9 All withdrawals, including guaranteed income withdrawals, are taken from the contract value and will reduce the death benefit and guaranteed death benefit (if elected) in the same percentage as contract value. Over time, contract value and Death Benefit Base could be withdrawn entirely, leaving no death benefit.

Available Rider Combination Option with Personal Protection Choice

Should your client become confined to a nursing home or require nursing care, the Care Protection benefit provides an enhanced guaranteed income benefit for up to five years. This benefit may be exercised after the second contract anniversary and provides an enhanced withdrawal amount up to a maximum amount (based on issue age of the oldest covered person and qualification level).

The insured must either be confined to a nursing home or unable to perform at least two of six Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) for at least 90 continuous days: bathing, dressing, eating, toileting, transferring, and continence. After 5 years, guaranteed income withdrawals under the selected income protection benefit are still available.10

Nursing home:
up to age 70: 250% of Income Benefit
age 71-85: 200% of Income Benefit

Care for a minimum of 2 out of 6 activities of daily living:
up to age 70: 175% of Income Benefit
age 71-85: 125% of Income Benefit

The additional fee on the Care Protection Benefit on PPC varies. The Care Protection Benefit must be selected in combination with the Income Protection benefit and optionally with the Family Protection Benefit. If the Family Protection Benefit is selected in any combination, the total annual rider fee is 1.15% of the benefit base. If the Family Protection Benefit is not selected, than the total annual rider fee for the combined Income Protection Benefit and Care Protection Benefit is 0.95% of the Income Benefit Base.

10 The Care Protection Benefit Rider is not a qualified Long Term Care benefit under the Internal Revenue Code. It does NOT qualify for preferential tax treatment and does NOT provide health insurance, Long Term Care insurance or Medicaid benefits. Proof of qualification must be submitted each year to receive this benefit. Must be certified by a physician as impaired and unable to perform at least two of the six activities of daily living (ADLs) - eating, bathing, dressing, transferring, toileting and continence. See the contract for qualifying confinement criteria. Care Protection benefit is not available in California.

Available with Personal Retirement Choice® (PRC)

Available for an added fee of 0.95%, the optional Guaranteed Lifetime Income Benefit can provide your client with guaranteed income payments every year for the rest of their life, provided their withdrawals are within specified amounts. The Income Benefit also includes features to increase the potential guaranteed income amount.

The Guaranteed Lifetime Income Benefit Base11 is set at your client's premium plus a premium bonus. Annual 8% roll-ups to the premium plus bonus grow the Income Benefit Base for up to 12 years, or until rider exercise. After 12 years, your client has the option to restart the roll-ups, at a rate guaranteed to be no less than 3%, for up to 12 more years.

Upon exercise of the Income Benefit, the Annual Benefit Amount will be calculated based on attained age of the youngest covered person and the Income Benefit Base. The annual roll-ups to the Income Benefit Base will then stop.
