How It Works for You

Grow and Protect Retirement Income

Receive 5% Annual Compounding
To determine future lifetime income, FlexChoice Access uses a Benefit Base – determined by your initial investment – that compounds at 5% for the first 10 contract years in years where no withdrawals are taken. No matter what happens in the market or to the account value, your Benefit Base won’t decline.1

Locking In Market Gains
Capture market gains through Automatic Step-Ups of your Benefit Base if the account value increases and is greater than the Benefit Base on any contract anniversary prior to your 91st birthday.2

Select 6% or 4.75% Withdrawals
Because no two retirement plans are the same, FlexChoice Access has options for different needs. You can take either 6% or 4.75% withdrawals at age 65, depending on your choice of two withdrawal options – Expedite or Level. The amount available for withdrawal is based on the age of the owner, or older owner if jointly owned, at the time of the first withdrawal after age 59½.

Income for Your Spouse
FlexChoice Access provides guaranteed income payments with no interruptions for the surviving spouse.3 While the initial withdrawal rate is the same for married and single clients,4 if something unexpected happens, it may be comforting to know that your spouse can continue to receive the income they need in retirement.5
