How to Think About Commission-Free MYGAs
When your client needs:
PRINCIPAL PROTECTION: Fixed annuities are typically used for clients nearing or in retirement, as they protect principal from market downturns, yet provide a minimum guaranteed rate of return.
FIXED INCOME: Fixed annuities provide a consistent stream of income for clients that are looking to de-risk their portfolios from equities.
CASH REPLACEMENT: Fixed annuities can be used instead of cash investments, such as CDs or money market funds, to help generate better returns subject to the terms of the contract.2

2Surrender charges, market value adjustments and other contract charges may apply that can reduce the premium. A surrender during the surrender charge period could result in a loss of premium. The surrender charge and market value adjustment may reset with renewal. Surrender charge structures and guarantee periods may vary by state.
All guarantees are based on the continued claims paying ability of the issuing company.
Premium taxes: the accumulation may be reduced for premium taxes if required by the state of residence.
There are risks, fees and charges associated with fixed annuities.
The purchase of an annuity within a retirement plan that already provides tax deferral under sections of the Internal Revenue Code results in no additional tax benefits. An annuity should be used to fund a qualified plan based upon the annuity’s features other than tax deferral. All annuity features, risks, limitations, and costs should be considered prior to recommending the purchase of an annuity within a tax-qualified retirement plan. In addition to surrender charges, withdrawals are subject to income tax.
Withdrawals prior to age 59 1/2 may also be subject to a 10% federal tax penalty.
