The Bonus Flexible Annuity provides tax-deferred growth and access to your money when you need it. It also allows for flexible contributions and has a variety of payout options. ‘Bonus’ and ‘ Flexible’ are the Key Words The key benefits of a Bonus Flex Annuity are the additional interest rate opportunities and the flexible options you have to make contributions and withdrawals. Bonus interest rate opportunities:
An additional one percent interest rate is credited to purchase payments received during the first 12 months
An additional 0.15 percent interest rate will be credited to accumulation values equal to or over $50,000
Flexible contribution options – An initial deposit of $5,000 or a $1,200 annual commitment is required to open a Bonus Flexible Annuity contract. You can also roll over IRA and Simplified Employee Pension plans to open a Bonus Flexible Annuity contract. After your initial deposit, you can make additional contributions either monthly, quarterly, semiannually or annually – whatever works best for your needs. If additional contributions are made, a $1,200 minimum is required each year.
Systematic income options – When you’re ready to begin receiving payments from your Bonus Flexible Annuity, you can choose if you want to receive payments monthly, quarterly, semiannually or annually. You can also customize the amount of income payments you receive in amounts as low as $100.
