*Annuity guarantees rely on the financial strength and claims-paying ability of the issuing insurer.
**Some annuities may have a lifetime income guarantee as part of the base policy; others may have riders available for additional premium that provide this benefit.
***Increased income possible with JD Signature Annuity Strategies over using one annuity alone. This approach follows a strategy suited to your financial goals and may require buying multiple annuities. Results will only be realized by working closely with your agent over an extended period of time to help make sure the strategies are used correctly. You will have to keep the annuity product(s) purchased for the full term, and your results could vary. These results are not possible in case of excess withdrawals or complete surrender, and you may incur penalties. Not available in all states. All interest is taxed upon withdrawal.
§Tax-free income may be realized through one of several strategies such as: using an existing Roth IRA in conjunction with an indexed annuity for guaranteed* income, converting traditional IRA to a Roth IRA, or utilizing a strategy incorporating a life insurance policy contract. Income taxes will apply to traditional IRA distributions and conversions.
^Most annuities have a withdrawal (surrender) period for the first five to 15 years of ownership. After the first year, however, you may be able to withdraw up to 10% of the account value without penalty. Excess withdrawals and any withdrawal prior to age 59-1/2 may significantly reduce the guaranteed withdrawal benefit amount and be subject to an additional 10% federal income tax penalty.
