Assured Edge Income BuilderSM

It's easy to generate predictable retirement income — for life.


This tax-deferred fixed annuity features a guaranteed lifetime withdrawal benefit (GLWB) to help generate retirement income that can't be outlived.

Potential Benefits of Assured Edge Income Builder

Guarantee your retirement income — for life

Assured Edge Income Builder can provide you with the flexibility to choose when you want to start receiving your guaranteed lifetime income, even as early as age 50. Once your lifetime income withdrawals begin, they will continue for as long as you live, even if the contract value is reduced to zero.1 Single and joint life coverage options are available.

Maintain Access To Your Money

In the event you need access to your contract value before or after lifetime income withdrawals begin, you can take advantage of contract provisions that allow penalty-free withdrawals without incurring withdrawal charges or market value adjustment (MVA). Keep in mind, if you take any money out of your fixed annuity (including penalty-free withdrawals and Required Minimum Distributions) before you elect to start lifetime income withdrawals, excess withdrawals will reduce the amount of your future lifetime income withdrawals.2

Grow Your Future Lifetime Income

Assured Edge Income Builder gives you the opportunity to receive a 7.5% (simple interest) income growth credit on your guaranteed lifetime income amount (GLIA) each year that you don't take withdrawals from your contract, until you elect to begin income withdrawals.3 Taking withdrawals before beginning your lifetime income withdrawals will affect your income growth credit and your GLIA. These are considered excess withdrawals that will proportionally reduce your income growth credit and GLIA. The income growth credit will also not be added for the year the excess withdrawal is taken.

Product Details

Guaranteed Minimum Renewal Rate

Regardless of future economic conditions, your annuity is guaranteed to renew at or above the minimum interest rate, which is listed in your contract or applicable endorsement(s).

Eligible Premium Period

After your initial premium ($25,000 minimum), you have the ability to add to your premium during the first 60 days after your contract is issued.

Penalty-Free Withdrawal Privilege

Beginning in the first contract year, you may take multiple withdrawals of up to 10% of the contract value, as of the previous anniversary, with no withdrawal charge or market value adjustment (MVA). These are referred to as penalty-free withdrawals. If a withdrawal occurs in the first contract year, the withdrawal amount is based on the total eligible premiums received at the time of the withdrawal.2

Market Value Adjustment

The MVA is an adjustment that can either increase or decrease the withdrawal amount depending on the current interest rate environment. When interest rates at the time of withdrawal are higher than the level at the time the contract was issued, the MVA will result in a decrease. If interest rates are down, the MVA will increase the withdrawal amount.

Should an MVA decrease apply, the amount charged will not result in your receiving less than the minimum withdrawal value as defined in your contract or MVA endorsement. The Barclays US Credit Index is used to measure rates.

1 To realize the full benefit of lifetime income, withdrawals must not exceed the guaranteed lifetime income amount.

2 All contractual withdrawals taken before you make a written election to start income under the GLWB feature(including RMDs and other penalty-free withdrawals under the contract) will be considered excess withdrawals for purposes of the GLWB and will proportionally reduce future income amounts; the income growth credit will not be applied to the GLIA for that year. After you elect to begin lifetime income withdrawals, only withdrawals that exceed the GLIA (except for RMDs) are considered excess withdrawals and will also proportionally reduce your GLIA.

3 The income growth rate is not a rate of return and the income growth credit is not added to the contract value.
