Access Single Premium Deferred Annuity (SPDA) allows for a single premium payment. The minimum premium you may make is $5,000. Interest rate guarantees are outlined below. The amount of interest to be credited is somewhat dependent on the amount of premium deposited. If the premium is less than $10,000, the interest rate guaranteed after December 31st of the year of issue is ½ % less than for premium deposits at the same time for a similar policy over $10,000. The annuity fund value will increase during the surrender period by interest credited at a conditionally guaranteed rate shown on the policy data pages. If the amount of the annuity fund value drops below the threshold shown on the data pages, then we will credit interest at the rate that has been determined by our Board of Directors for all monies on deposit at the end of the period ending December 31st of the prior calendar year or as may be redetermined by our Board of Directors once during the current calendar year. The crediting rate will never be less than the Basic Interest Rate.
Death Benefit If you are the annuitant and die before we start to pay you income from your annuity, we pay the annuity fund value to your beneficiar y. If you are the owner of the deferred annuity but not the annuitant, death benefit proceeds may also be payable at your death. See the “Ownership” provision in your annuity contract for details. If you elect to take regular monthly income payments of principal and interest, we will issue you a supplemental contract. If you die after the payouts start, whether or not there is a death benefit payable to your beneficiary and how that benefit if any, would be paid, is dependent on the type of payout you chose.
