What is a Variable Annuity?

Variable annuities are long-term, tax-deferred investments designed for retirement, involve investment risks and may lose value. 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.

*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.

Select up to a maximum of 99 investments and adjust options or allocations up to 25 times each contract year without transfer fees. To prevent abusive trading practices, Jackson restricts the frequency of transfers among Variable Investment Options, including trading out of and back into the same subaccount within a 15-day period.

An add-on benefit is available for an extra charge in addition to the ongoing fees and expenses of the variable annuity. Once elected, the benefit may not be canceled or changed; please see prospectus for specific benefit availability. The long-term advantage of the add-on benefit will vary with the terms of the benefit option, the investment performance of the Variable Investment Options selected, and the length of time the annuity is owned. As a result, in some circumstances the cost of an option may exceed the actual benefit paid under that option.

Tax-efficient investing

Tax deferral* can provide you with tax control while also potentially allowing your assets to grow more quickly than in a taxable account — pay taxes when you withdraw your money, not while you earn it.

Maximize your accumulation opportunity and invest your way

If you're not yet ready to take income, or in cases where you will not need income to support your retirement, the Elite Access Suite is designed to provide maximum growth and accumulation. Markets have historically moved up more often than down, staying invested for the long term may work in your favor and diversifying your portfolio can help smooth the ride*. Jackson's Investment Freedom allows you to invest your way to pursue your goals for the future.

The market's been a bumpy ride

Even though it can be unpredictable, waiting for the market to stabilize could mean missing out on much-needed gains.

*Diversification does not assure a profit or protect against loss in a declining market.

Select up to a maximum of 99 investments and adjust options or allocations up to 25 times each contract year without transfer fees. To prevent abusive trading practices, Jackson restricts the frequency of transfers among Variable Investment Options, including trading out of and back into the same subaccount within a 15-day period.

 

Legacy benefits that can help build generational wealth

Over time your financial goals may shift from building wealth to a focus on providing for future generations. Elite Access Suite provides a safeguard for the legacy you leave behind with included and add-on death benefits*

Return of Premium death benefit

This included benefit allows you to:

-Preserve more of what you leave behind in a tax-efficient way

-Avoid the time-consuming probate process for your heirs

EarningsMax® death benefit

This add-on benefit allows you to:

-Potentially offset federal and state income taxes that could erode beneficiaries' proceeds

Jackson non-qualified stretch

Our non-qualified stretch option permits beneficiaries of nonqualified annuities to "stretch" distributions over a period of time and may offer greater flexibility and control.

Protect your wealth & legacy

Jackson offers "Control from the Grave"— a program that can help your beneficiaries effectively manage their inheritance.

*An add-on benefit is available for an extra charge in addition to the ongoing fees and expenses of the variable annuity. Once elected, the benefit may not be canceled or changed; please see prospectus for specific benefit availability. The long-term advantage of the add-on benefit will vary with the terms of the benefit option, the investment performance of the Variable Investment Options selected, and the length of time the annuity is owned. As a result, in some circumstances the cost of an option may exceed the actual benefit paid under that option. 

Return of Premium death benefit and EarningsMax death benefit are not available in New York.

*Select up to a maximum of 99 investments and adjust options or allocations up to 25 times each contract year without transfer fees. To prevent abusive trading practices, Jackson restricts the frequency of transfers among Variable Investment Options, including trading out of and back into the same subaccount within a 15-day period.

Market value adjustment may apply to certain amounts withdrawn or annuitized.

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

Annuities are long-term, tax-deferred vehicles designed for retirement.  Variable annuities and registered index-linked annuities involve investment risks and may lose value. Earnings are taxable as ordinary income when distributed.  Individuals may be subject to a 10% additional tax if withdrawn before age 59 1/2 if an exception to the tax is not met.

Add-on benefits are available for an extra charge in addition to the ongoing fees and expenses of the annuity and may be subject to conditions and limitations.  There is no guarantee that an annuity with an add-on living benefit will provide sufficient supplemental retirement income.
