Sentinel Security Life Insurance Company launched a new feature for the Accumulation Protector Plus (APP) Annuity that will offer even more flexibility. On the contract anniversary coinciding with the end of a strategy’s crediting period, contract owners will now be able to reallocate the account value from that strategy to any of the APP’s one, two, or three-year crediting strategies. For example, if your client has premium allocated to a 1-year strategy and a 3-year strategy, at the end of the 1-year strategy’s crediting period they can allocate those funds to a new 1, 2, or 3-year strategy while their other 3-year strategy is still at play. With more options, your clients will be able to more easily try out different APP growth strategies to best suit their needs.
