Highlights

Investment Edge is an innovative retirement strategy designed to take advantage of smart diversification and tax-deferred growth potential in your wealth-building years, followed by tax-efficient distributions when you need retirement income. It can help you: 
  • Diversify to help mitigate risk, to help smooth the effect of market ups and downs in any one market sector and stay focused on potential long-term growth in your wealth-building years. 
  • Defer taxes, to allow contributions and your earnings to compound and grow, without having to pay taxes on your growth until you choose to start withdrawals for retirement. 
  • Distribute income with tax-efficient payments, to maximize tax-efficient distributions through the power of Income Edge.

Waivers

Nursing Home

At any time after the first contract date anniversary, you may submit a claim to have the withdrawal charge waived if you meet certain requirements. You are not eligible to make a claim prior to your first contract date anniversary. Also, your claim must be on the specific form we provide for this purpose. The withdrawal charge does not apply if an owner (or older joint owner, if applicable) has been confined to a nursing home for more than 90 days (or such other period, as required in your state) as verified by a licensed physician. A nursing home for this purpose means one that is (a) approved by Medicare as a provider of skilled nursing care service, or (b) licensed as a skilled nursing home by the state or territory in which it is located (it must be within the United States, Puerto Rico, or U.S. Virgin Islands). Home Health Care acceptable as long as you have a physician's letter and 2 of 6 ADL.

Terminal Illness

At any time after the first contract date anniversary, you may submit a claim to have the withdrawal charge waived if you meet certain requirements. You are not eligible to make a claim prior to your first contract date anniversary. Also, your claim must be on the specific form we provide for this purpose. The withdrawal charge does not apply if we receive proof satisfactory to us (including certification by a licensed physician) that an owner’s (or older joint owner’s, if applicable) life expectancy is six months or less.

Disability

At any time after the first contract date anniversary, you may submit a claim to have the withdrawal charge waived if you meet certain requirements. You are not eligible to make a claim prior to your first contract date anniversary. Also, your claim must be on the specific form we provide for this purpose. The withdrawal charge does not apply if we receive proof satisfactory to us (including certification by a licensed physician) that an owner (or older joint owner, if applicable) is unable to perform three “activities of daily living”.
