Fixed annuity review and rates

Guardian Eagle

Guardian Eagle Annuity is a single premium deferred annuity is funded by a single payment and allows your money to grow over a period of time with compound interest. This means the interest builds on the amount that has already accrued, so the longer your money remains untouched, the more opportunity it will have to accumulate. These funds are tax-deferred, so you won’t pay any taxes on this money until it is withdrawn.

All of ELCO’s MYGAs are purchased with a single premium (a lump sum). Contract owners do have 90 days to make additional contributions to their annuity, but no additional funds can be added once that window passes.

Continuation Option
The one, two, and three-year contracts offer a 30-day window to continue the contract at a designated rate, while assuming the five-year withdrawal schedule, at the end of the initial term. During this window, clients can also withdraw the funds or transfer them into a new contract. The continuation rate for the one, two, and three year term is the same as their initial guaranteed rate. 

Liquidity Options
  • Interest: Free after 30 days. 
  • Free Withdrawal: 15% of the principal once per contract year beginning in the second contract year.
