Created for financial advisors to explain the value and resources Jackson offers for your business.
Annuities are long-term, tax-deferred vehicles designed for retirement. Variable annuities involve investment risks and may lose value. Earnings are taxable as ordinary income when distributed and may be subject to a 10% additional tax if withdrawn before age 59½.
Jackson and its affiliates do not provide legal, tax or estate-planning advice. For questions about a specific situation, please consult a qualified advisor.
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 “non-natural person” such as a corporation or certain types of trusts.
1 Guarantees are backed by the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company.
2 Optional benefits are available for an additional charge.
