Premium Notes

Premium Notes
The easiest piece. The contract is purchased with a single sum of money. However, additional funds may be deposited within the first 12 months to the 1-Year fixed interest rate strategy and it is not set up on an automatic basis. At the end of the first contract year, the additional funds may be reallocated to the index strategy accounts.
Additional Premium Minimum: $500
Maximum Premium: $1,000,000

Note: We take inherited/beneficiary IRA as a plan type only if person died before 2020;  as a rollover.
