All warranties are based on the issuer’s claims-paying ability.

The guarantees are not linked to the performance of the variable investment options. A variable annuity is a long-term retirement financial vehicle, subject to market fluctuations. It may lose value, including potential loss of principal, and is subject to certain fees and expenses not normally associated with other investment vehicles. Withdrawals are subject to the terms of the contract and will reduce the contract value and the accrued benefit base, the amount used to calculate withdrawal or income payments and death benefit amounts. Withdrawals may be subject to income taxes and redemption fees; and, when taken before age 59.5, may be subject to an additional 10% penalty tax.

Clients should consult their trusted financial professionals before receiving income or other withdrawals. If the annuity contract is held in a qualified account or plan, such as an IRA, the tax deferral feature provides no additional benefit beyond that provided by the qualified account or plan.

Product and/or features may not be available in all states. Policy form number: ICC11-VA-C. Amendment form number: ICC21-GMAB minimum capitalization guarantee. Form numbers may vary by product and condition. Optional runners incur additional cost and may not be available in some combinations.
