Performance Single Premium Deferred Annuity (SPDA) allows for a single premium payment. The minimum premium you may make is $25,000. The amount of interest to be credited is somewhat dependent on the amount of premium deposited. The annuity fund value will increase during the surrender period by interest credited at a conditionally guaranteed rate. If the amount of the annuity fund value drops below $25,000, 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 beneficiary. If you are the owner of the deferred annuity but not the annuitant, death benefit proceeds may also be payable at your death. 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.
Withdrawal Features Free withdrawals for:
Required Minimum Distributions
Withdrawal of up to prior year’s accumulated interest OR option to withdraw up to 10% of accumulated value (lower crediting rate applies when electing the latter withdrawal privilege).
Withdrawals in excess of free withdrawal provisions made during surrender charge period will incur surrender charge and Market Value Adjustment.
Market Value Adjustment If the Market Value Adjustment (MVA) rider is elected at issue, an MVA may further reduce the cash surrender value. A positive MVA will decrease the amount being surrendered. A negative MVA will increase the amount being surrendered. Even with an MVA, in no event will the Cash Value of the Policy be less than the Guaranteed Minimum Cash Surrender Value. If your annuity includes a MVA rider and you have not elected the 10% withdrawal benefit outlined above, we will issue your policy with an endorsement that will allow you, in any given policy year, to withdraw without surrender penalty or Market Value Adjustment, if any, interest earned during the previous policy year. If interest earned is not withdrawn during the policy year following the one in which it was earned, it may not be withdrawn without appropriate surrender charges or Market Value Adjustment, if any, in any subsequent policy year.
