Learn how an annuity can provide guaranteed income for life.

These single-premium, tax-deferred fixed annuities provide the safety of principal, a guaranteed interest rate, and can provide an income stream for life. It’s designed for long-term financial goals, and offers a conservative addition to your retirement savings.

Penalty-Free Withdrawal
Privilege After 30 days from the contract date, you may take multiple penalty-free withdrawals (without charges) each year not exceeding in total the greater of (1) the accumulated interest earned or (2) up to 15% of the previous anniversary contract value. If you do not use all of the 15% withdrawal percentage in a contract year, you may carry over the unused portion (up to 5%) to the next contract year increasing the annual withdrawal to 20% of the anniversary contract value (or the accumulated interest if greater).

Systematic Withdrawals
  • Systematic withdrawals are allowed after 30 days by making a written election
  • $100 minimum amount monthly, quarterly, semiannually or annually
  • Systematic withdrawals may be subject to withdrawal charges if they exceed penalty-free withdrawal amounts
Random Withdrawal
$250 minimum amount. US Life reserves the right to pay the entire withdrawal value and terminate the contract if a withdrawal reduces the contract value to less than $2,000.

More flexibility with optional return-of-premium guarantee
Both the American Pathway Fixed 5 and Fixed 7 annuities offer an optional return-of-premium guarantee at the time of purchase. Adding this feature will slightly lower your initial interest rate. With the return-of-premium guarantee option, if you cancel the annuity contract, you will always receive the greater of: 
  • Your single premium, less prior net withdrawals 
  • The withdrawal value (contract value minus applicable withdrawal charges) 
Note: TSP funds have to be rolled into an IRA.
