Effective July 1: Fixed Indexed Annuity Updates

Our fixed indexed annuity (FIA) product suite has never been stronger. We’re proud of the value, income, accumulation potential, and protection they bring to your current and potential clients. We want to make you aware of updates we are making to our FIA product suite, effective July 1, 2020. These changes reflect today’s challenging interest rate environment, but also will allow us to serve a greater number of potential clients.

  • First, we will be increasing the maximum issue age to 85 for Nassau Growth Annuity without an income rider.*
  • Second, to create consistency throughout our product suite, we will be adjusting the premium bonus and bonus vesting schedule on Personal Retirement Choice in Group A states.**
  • Third, we will be reducing the payout percentages on the income riders available with our FIAs. Our products continue to offer strong consumer value even after these changes.***
  • Fourth, Idaho will transition to the Group B surrender charge schedule across all of our FIAs, as a result of state regulatory changes.
*Income rider and nursing home/terminal illness waivers will only be available for issue age 80 and below. 
**These states include: AL, AR, AZ, CO, DC, GA, HI, IN, KS, MD, MI, NC, ND, NE, NM, NV, OK, RI, SD, TN, WV.
***Applies to future new business sold through Nassau Life and Annuity Company, as well as both single and spousal rider options.
