Fixed index annuity review and rates

NAC PrimePath Pro 12

The PrimePath Pro 12 is a flexible premium deferred fixed index annuity. An annuity is a long-term Contract issued by an insurance company. In exchange for a premium payment, the insurance company agrees to make payments to you later on. This annuity provides an accumulation value that may earn interest through a fixed account and various index accounts (if selected). While the fixed account earns a fixed rate of interest each year, index accounts earn interest credits based on how an underlying index performs. Interest credits are guaranteed to never be less than zero.

Enhanced death benefit: The client has the choice between: 
  • Greater of accumulation value or minimum surrender value (can be taken as a lump sum or in a series of payments)
  • Greater of the benefit base and the benefit base floor (must be paid out in equal payments over a 5 year period) subject to the rider death benefit maximum (varies by state).
LPA multiplier: Beginning in the 3rd year, if an owner/annuitant is unable to perform 2/6 activities of daily living (ADLs) for more than 90 consecutive days, the LPA multiplier provides that the LPA can be doubled for that year. Feature available for up to 5 years as long as qualifying requirements are met annually and the accumulation value is greater than zero.

Benefit base floor: The benefit base floor is equal to the premiums, less any proportional reductions for withdrawals, accumulated at 1% per year until LPAs are started and 0% thereafter. When the benefit base is utilized by starting LPAs, the benefit base is guaranteed to be no less than the benefit base floor.
