The Pursuit of Retirement Freedom. Today, with many people living longer, healthier, and more active lives, retirement has become a turning point — not an end point. But the prospect of a longer retirement raises important questions about whether traditional retirement income streams — such as Social Security, pensions, and personal savings — will be sufficient for you to sustain a comfortable lifestyle as you age.
With these challenges in mind, Jackson® offers Perspective II, one of America's top-selling* variable annuities that offers you the freedom to create your own distinctive portfolio plan with quality investments, optional benefits†, and tax deferral‡. It's a retirement investment vehicle designed to let you adapt your investment choices to your evolving needs and goals.
*LIMRA Secure Retirement Institute U.S. Individual Annuities Sales Survey, First Quarter, 2016. Jackson was first in total annuity sales out of 62 participating companies that provided LIMRA with quarterly data.
†Optional benefits are available for an extra charge in addition to the ongoing fees and expenses of the variable annuity.
‡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 not be available if the annuity is owned by a "non-natural person" such as a corporation or certain types of trusts.
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 Earnings are taxable as ordinary income when distributed and may be subject to a 10% additional tax if withdrawn before age 59½.

**On the contract anniversary on or immediately following the owner's (or older joint owner's) attained age 59½, the for-life guarantee becomes effective provided: 1) the contract value is greater than zero and 2) the contract has not been annuitized.
