The Steady Choice II is a flexible premium deferred annuity. The minimum single premium is $1,200 annually ($100 monthly) for qualified and non-qualified money. 10% of the accumulation value may be withdrawn without a surrender penalty. Systematic Withdrawal is an option.
Surrender Charges The surrender charge will apply to a full or partial surrender of the annuity (including required minimum distribution in accordance with the following rule). If the total amount withdrawn in a certificate year exceeds 10% of the account value at the time of the first withdrawal in that certificate year, the excess will be subject to a surrender charge. The surrender charge is calculated by taking the excess multiplied by the applicable Surrender Charge Percentage.
