AssetShield 7 is a Flexible Premium Deferred Annuity designed to help protect hard-earned dollars from index fluctuations while offering interest growth opportunities based on increases in an index.

Premium Allocations
The initial premium payment can be allocated, in any combination, to either the fixed interest or any of the index strategies. Payments received after the initial premium automatically go into the fixed interest strategy. The Contract Values may be reallocated on the contract anniversary between strategies subject to this minimum:
  • The minimum allocation for each value is $1,000.
  • The minimum transfer to select a new value is 10% of the Contract Value.
Rider Charge
The rider charge is the amount deducted on the last day of each indexed strategy term from each indexed strategy to which the rider is applied. To calculate the rider charge, the rider fee (1.5% for monthly and annual point-to-point strategies and 3% for 2-year point to point strategies) is multiplied by the strategy value of the corresponding indexed strategy on the first day of each term. The rider fee will not change during the surrender charge period and will never be more than the maximum rider fee of 3%.
