Growth potential

Growth potential for your retirement assets

Depending on your risk tolerance, asset growth is possible with many different types of annuities. Fixed annuities offer a fixed rate of return on your investment. Fixed index annuities see growth through principal protection and additional interest measured through a market index. Variable annuities allow you to invest your money across a wide range of investment options and an add-on living benefit*, which is available for an additional charge, can provide income protection even when the market moves up and down. All of these annuities allow for tax-deferred growth. Think of growth and protection in the form of a risk spectrum—how much are you willing to expose yourself to market loss, and how much do you want to gain?

The market's been a bumpy ride

Have you been questioning if you should stay out of the market while it’s down? Keep in mind, markets have historically moved up more often than down. Even though it can be unpredictable, waiting for the market to stabilize could mean missing out on much-needed gains. 

What is an Annuity?

Annuities are long-term, tax-deferred vehicles designed for retirement. Earnings are taxable as ordinary income when distributed. Individuals may be subject to a 10% additional tax for withdrawals before age 59½ unless an exception to the tax is met.

The principal value of a variable annuity will fluctuate based on the performance of the underlying investment options and may lose value. There is no guarantee that a variable annuity with an add-on living benefit will provide sufficient supplemental retirement income.

Income protection

Many people are living longer, healthier lives so reliable income that lasts is essential to any retirement. Jackson annuities offer a variety of add-on benefits that can provide lifetime income to meet the challenges of longevity ahead.

Growth potential from tax deferral

One of the great advantages of annuities is they defer your taxes on interest and investment earnings until you take income from them. This means you get to keep more of what you’ve earned to invest in your future retirement.

Legacy benefits

Sometimes there’s more to retirement than living a good life. With add-on benefits that preserve and grow assets in an annuity, planning for future generations has never been easier. And once it’s time to pass on your legacy, it can go directly to your beneficiaries, tax-deferred. 

*Add-on benefits that provide income for the length of a designated life and/or lives may be available for an additional charge. The amount of income that these benefits may provide can vary depending on the age when income is taken, and how many lives are covered when the benefit is elected. The cost of these benefits may negatively impact the contract's cash value.

Lifetime income of the add-on lifetime benefits available with variable annuities becomes effective at issue if the designated life is age 59½ at issue, or upon the contract anniversary following designated life's 59½ birthday, provided the contract value is greater than zero and has not been annuitized.

Tax deferral offers no additional value if an annuity is used to fund a qualified plan, such as a 401(k) or IRA, and may be found at a lower cost in other investment products. It also may not be available if the annuity is owned by a legal entity such as a corporation or certain types of trusts.

Before investing, investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of the variable annuity and its underlying investment options. The current contract prospectus and underlying fund prospectuses, which are contained in the same document, provide this and other important information. Please contact your financial professional or the Company to obtain the prospectuses. Please read the prospectuses carefully before investing or sending money.
