What is the Jackson Market Link Pro Suite?

It's made up of registered index-linked annuities (RILAs). A RILA is a long-term tax-deferred vehicle designed for retirement. It is subject to investment risk, the value will fluctuate, and loss of principal is possible. A RILA, which is an insurance contract, allows you to choose how you want to prioritize growth opportunities while managing the amount of loss you may assume. Earnings are taxable as ordinary income when distributed, Individuals may be subject to a 10% additional tax for withdrawals before the age of 59 ½ unless an exception to the tax is met.

Seek protection for your future

These two protection options could help provide a safety net for market downturns—major or minor.
 

BUFFER PROTECTION
Jackson provides this protection if the index is down, you are protected from the first -10% loss. You absorb this loss if the index is down more than the buffer protection level.
FLOOR PROTECTION
You absorb this loss if the index is down, the most loss you would incur is -10%. Jackson provides this protection if the index is down more than the floor protection level

The Floor protection option on Jackson Market Link Pro and Jackson Market Link Pro Advisory is not available in Ohio.

Choose what’s right for you

You’ve allocated your investment. You’ve secured some protection. Now see how different crediting method options can impact your investment.
 

CAP
If the index is up, your value tracks it up to your cap rate. If the index is negative, your value holds steady within you chosen buffer. The buffer aborbs loss up to a point, but your value decreases when it falls below the buffer.
PERFORMANCE TRIGGER
If the index is flat or positive, your value matches the trigger rate. If the index is negative, your value drops, but not more than your floor allows.
PERFORMANCE BOOST
If your index is positive, flat, or within a 10% buffer, an additional 10% boost is added to the index's return. If the index falls below the buffer, the boost doesn't apply. But the buffer still help, as it absorbs loss up to a point.

Not all crediting methods and/or protection options are available with all Index Account Option Terms. Caps/Rates are set at the beginning of each term and are subject to change.

The Performance Boost crediting method is only available on Jackson Market Link Pro II and Jackson Market Link Pro Advisory II.


Jackson Market Link Pro II and Jackson Market Link Pro Advisory II:

The Performance Boost Rate is 10%, unless otherwise specified. The Performance Boost Rate will apply if the index return is higher than or equal to the initial index starting value or if the index return is within, but does not exceed, the Buffer. 

The term "Rate" refers to the Cap Rate, Performance Trigger Rate, and/or Performance Boost Cap Rate associated with your Index Account Option.  This rate represents the maximum amount that could be credited to your Index Account Option Value as a positive Index Adjustment at the end of your Index Account Option Term.  There may be other rates, such as an Index Participation Rate and/or Performance Boost Rate, associated with the calculation of your Index Adjustment, which are not reflected here.  For a full list of Index Adjustment Factors that are used to calculate your Index Adjustment and resulting Index Account Option Value, please refer to the prospectus. 

Past performance is no indication of future results. The values shown are hypothetical, for illustrative purposes only, and are intended to show the mechanics of the Index Account Options available with Jackson Market Link Pro II and Jackson Market Link Pro II Advisory registered index-linked annuities. This tool presents a limited range of historical outcomes and the graphs shown are for illustrative purposes only. Results will vary based on variations in assumptions and inputs. As a result, performance can vary significantly over time. For additional details refer to methodology, definitions & important information.

Caps/Rates, set at the beginning of each term and subject to change, can range between 1%-999% and may represent extraordinary returns which may not be achieved by the underlying index over the selected term. A cap of 999% represents the maximum potential crediting available on the contract and is dependent on the performance of the underlying index selected.

Owners could see a substantial loss during an index period if the index declines more than the level of downside protection. If an owner does see a substantial loss during an index period, the owner may not be able to participate fully in a subsequent market recovery due to the capped upside potential in subsequent index periods.

The investor scenarios contained in this tool are hypothetical examples for illustrative purposes only.  They are provided for informational purposes and are not intended as investment advice or a recommendation.  Your individual circumstances may vary.  You should consider your individual situation, including your time horizon, risk tolerance, investment objectives and the need for an annuity before investing.

This material is authorized for use only when preceded or accompanied by the current contract prospectus.  Before investing, investors should carefully consider the investment objectives and risks of the registered index-linked annuity.  This and other important information is contained in the current contract prospectus at Jackson.com/ProspectusJMLP for the Jackson Market Link Pro prospectus, Jackson.com/ProspectusJMLP2 for the Jackson Market Link Pro II prospectus, Jackson.com/ProspectusJMLPA for the Jackson Market Link Pro Advisory prospectus or Jackson.com/ProspectusJMLPA2 for the Jackson Market Link Pro Advisory II prospectus.

Tax laws are complicated and subject to change. Tax results may depend on each taxpayer’s individual set of facts and circumstances. You should rely on your own independent advisors as to any tax, accounting, or legal statements made herein.

Impact of withdrawals:

Withdrawals may be subject to withdrawal charges or market value adjustments (MVA) and the Interim Value adjustment may apply.

Withdrawals before the end of a term are subject to an interim value adjustment. The interim value adjustment may have a positive or negative impact on the contract value at the end of the term which may be significant.

For Jackson Market Link Pro and Jackson Market Link Pro II, withdrawal charges will apply to withdrawals during the first six years of the contract which will result in reduced contract value. The withdrawal charge schedule is 8%, 8%, 7%, 6%, 5%, 4%, 0%.

For Jackson Market Link Pro Advisory and Jackson Market Link Pro Advisory II, a market value adjustment (MVA) will be applied to certain amounts withdrawn or annuitized during the first six contract years. The MVA may results in an increase or decrease to amounts removed from the contract.

Owners could see a substantial loss during an index period if the index declines more than the level of downside protection. If an owner does see a substantial loss during an index period, the owner may not be able to participate fully in a subsequent market recovery due to the capped upside potential in subsequent index periods.

Methodology

Scenario returns are based on the historical returns of the chosen index. It’s important to note that other indices may have different or opposite return characteristics during these same scenario time periods.

 

Crediting Methods

Three crediting methods are offered across the 1-year, 3-year and 6-year Index Account Option Terms. They are Cap, Performance Boost and Performance Trigger.  Not all crediting methods are available with all protection options or Index Account Option Terms.

Index Participation Rate (“IPR”): The percentage applied to any positive index return in the calculation of the index adjustment for the cap crediting method. The IPR is an index adjustment factor and is declared at the beginning of the index account option term.

Cap Rate (“Cap”): The stated maximum amount of potential gain, if the index return is positive, that could be credited for the selected term.

Performance Boost Cap Rate: The stated maximum amount of potential gain, if the index return is positive, flat, or within the buffer, that could be credited for the selected term.

Performance Boost Rate ("PBR"): The amount that will be added to the index return, expressed as a percentage, that will increase the index adjustment credited under the performance boost crediting method up to the stated performance boost cap rate. The PBR will be equal to the buffer. 

Performance Trigger Rate (“Performance Trigger”): A stated rate of return, which may be greater than or less than the actual return of the index, that will be credited to the contract if the ending index value is equal to or greater than the initial index value.

 

Protection Options

Two protection options are offered across the 1-year, 3-year and 6-year Index Account Option Terms. They are Buffer and Floor.  Not all crediting methods are available with all protection options or Index Account Option Terms. 

Buffer: A Buffer is the amount of negative Index price change before a negative Index Adjustment is credited to the Index Account Option Value at the end of an Index Account Option Term, expressed as a percentage. Put another way, a Buffer protects your Index Account Option Value from loss up to a specified amount. Jackson protects you from any loss associated with Index decline up to your elected Buffer percentage. You only incur a loss if the Index has declined more than your elected Buffer percentage as of your Index Account Option Term Anniversary. 

Floor: A Floor is the maximum loss that will be credited to the Index Account Option at the end of the Index Account Option Term, expressed as a percentage. In contrast to the Buffer, a Floor protects your Index Account Option Value from loss greater than a specified amount. This means that if the Index has declined as of your Index Account Option Term Anniversary, you will incur all of the loss up to your elected Floor percentage. Jackson will protect you from any Index decline greater than your elected Floor percentage.

 

Market Scenarios

Market scenarios have been created in order to demonstrate the mechanics of the Jackson Market Link Pro Suite of registered index-linked annuities. These products were not available during the time period illustrated. The investment outcomes of an actual contract could differ due to different beginning and ending dates of an actual contract versus the beginning and ending dates used in this tool. Investment outcomes could also very, based on the fluctuation of renewal rates, depending on the Index Account Option(s) selected.

Down Market: The down-market scenario illustrates returns based on the selected benchmark for the worst six-year period since May 1990.

Up Market: The up-market scenario illustrates returns based on the selected benchmark for the best six-year period since May 1990.

Recent Market: The recent-market scenario illustrates returns based on the selected benchmark for the most recent six-year period.

Dot-com Bubble: The Dot-com Bubble scenario illustrates the return of the selected Index Account Option(s) starting 01/01/2000 and ending 12/31/2005.

U.S. Housing Market Crisis: The U.S. Housing Market Crisis scenario illustrates the return of the selected Index Account Option(s) 01/01/2006 and ending 12/31/2011.

Brexit/COVID: The Brexit/COVID scenario illustrates the return of the selected Index Account Option(s) starting 04/01/2014 and ending 03/31/2020.

We assume each Index Account Option Term allocation is reinvested at the end of the Index Account Option Term to reflect hypothetical returns over the six-year periods defined above. Therefore, a 1-year Index Account Option is reinvested five times, a 3-year Index Account Option is reinvested once, and a 6-year Index Account Option is not reinvested. Any positive Index Adjustments are reinvested at the original rate. Actual results may vary due to the fluctuation of renewal rates for each Index Account Option. 

 

Index Options

The indices used are price indices and do not reflect dividends paid on the underlying stocks. Investors are not buying shares of any stock or index and cannot invest directly in the indices. During periods of favorable market and economic conditions, the index performance and cap rates could result in extraordinary returns which may not be repeated or sustained.

S&P 500 Index: The S&P 500 Index is comprised of equity securities issued by large-capitalization U.S. companies. In general, large-capitalization companies may be unable to respond quickly to new competitive challenges and may not be able to attain the high growth rate of successful smaller companies.

Russell 2000 Index: The Russell 2000 Index is comprised of equity securities of small-capitalization U.S. companies. In general, the securities of small-capitalization companies may be more volatile and may involve more risk than the securities of larger companies. Small-capitalization companies are more likely to fail than larger companies.

MSCI EAFE Index: The MSCI EAFE Index is comprised of equity securities of large- and mid-capitalization companies and it is designed to measure the equity market performance of developed markets, including countries in Europe, Australasia, and the Far East. In general, large-capitalization companies may be unable to respond quickly to new competitive challenges and may not be able to attain the high growth rate of successful smaller companies, and the securities of mid-capitalization companies may be more volatile and may involve more risk than the securities of larger companies. Securities issued by non-U.S. companies (including related depositary receipts) are subject to the risks related to investments in foreign markets (e.g., increased price volatility; changing currency exchange rates; and greater political, regulatory, and economic uncertainty).

MSCI Emerging Markets Index: The MSCI Emerging Markets Index is comprised of equity securities of large- and mid-capitalization companies in emerging markets. In general, large-capitalization companies may be unable to respond quickly to new competitive challenges and may not be able to attain the high growth rate of successful smaller companies, and the securities of larger companies. Mid-capitalization companies are more likely to fail than larger companies. Securities issued by non-U.S. companies (including related depositary receipts) are subject to the risks related to investments in foreign markets (e.g., increased price volatility; changing currency exchange rates; and greater political, regulatory, and economic uncertainty). Those risks are typically more acute when issuers are located or operating in emerging markets. Emerging markets may be more likely to experience inflation, political turmoil, and rapid changes in economic conditions than developed markets. Emerging markets often have less uniformity in accounting and reporting requirements, less reliable valuations, and greater risk associated with custody of securities than developed markets.

MSCI KLD 400 Social Index: The MSCI KLD 400 Social Index is comprised of equity securities that provide exposure to companies with outstanding Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) ratings and excludes companies whose products have negative social or environmental impacts. Since the primary objective of this Index is to track companies with a positive social or environmental impact, this Index may underperform the market as a whole or other indices that do not screen for ESG standards. The Index may include large-, mid-, and small-capitalization companies. In general, large capitalization companies may be unable to respond quickly to new competitive challenges and may not be able to attain the high growth rate of other successful smaller companies, and the securities of smaller capitalization companies may be more volatile and may involve more risk than the securities of larger companies. Smaller companies are more likely to fail than larger companies.


Impact of Withdrawals

Withdrawals before the end of a term are subject to an interim value adjustment.  The interim value adjustment may have a positive or negative impact on the contract value at the end of the term which may be significant.

For Jackson Market Link Pro II, withdrawal charges will apply to withdrawals during the first six years of the contract which will result in a reduced contract value. Withdrawal charges as a percentage of remaining premium. The withdrawal charge schedule is 8%, 8%, 7%, 6%, 5%, 4%, 0%

For Jackson Market Link Pro Advisory II, a market value adjustment (MVA) will be applied to certain amounts withdrawn or annuitized during the first six contract years.  The MVA may result in an increase or decrease to amounts removed from the contract.


Index Account

An account within the Index Account for allocation of Premium. Each Index Account Option is defined by term, index and crediting method and has an Index Adjustment Factor tied to its Issue Date, index and crediting method during the withdrawal charge period. Upon expiration of the withdrawal charge period, each Index Account Option is defined by its index and crediting method.

MSCI EAFE Index: The MSCI EAFE Index is comprised of equity securities of large- and mid-capitalization companies and it is designed to measure the equity market performance of developed markets, including countries in Europe, Australasia, and the Far East. In general, large-capitalization companies may be unable to respond quickly to new competitive challenges and may not be able to attain the high growth rate of successful smaller companies, and the securities of mid-capitalization companies may be more volatile and may involve more risk than the securities of larger companies. Securities issued by non-U.S. companies (including related depositary receipts) are subject to the risks related to investments in foreign markets (e.g., increased price volatility; changing currency exchange rates; and greater political, regulatory, and economic uncertainty).

MSCI Emerging Markets Index: The MSCI Emerging Markets Index is comprised of equity securities of large- and mid-capitalization companies in emerging markets. In general, large-capitalization companies may be unable to respond quickly to new competitive challenges and may not be able to attain the high growth rate of successful smaller companies, and the securities of larger companies. Mid-capitalization companies are more likely to fail than larger companies. Securities issued by non-U.S. companies (including related depositary receipts) are subject to the risks related to investments in foreign markets (e.g., increased price volatility; changing currency exchange rates; and greater political, regulatory, and economic uncertainty). Those risks are typically more acute when issuers are located or operating in emerging markets. Emerging markets may be more likely to experience inflation, political turmoil, and rapid changes in economic conditions than developed markets. Emerging markets often have less uniformity in accounting and reporting requirements, less reliable valuations, and greater risk associated with custody of securities than developed markets.

MSCI KLD 400 Social Index: The MSCI KLD 400 Social Index is comprised of equity securities that provide exposure to companies with outstanding Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) ratings and excludes companies whose products have negative social or environmental impacts. Since the primary objective of this Index is to track companies with a positive social or environmental impact, this Index may underperform the market as a whole or other indices that do not screen for ESG standards. The Index may include large-, mid-, and small-capitalization companies. In general, large capitalization companies may be unable to respond quickly to new competitive challenges and may not be able to attain the high growth rate of other successful smaller companies, and the securities of smaller capitalization companies may be more volatile and may involve more risk than the securities of larger companies. Smaller companies are more likely to fail than larger companies.
