Securian Expands Suite of Annuity Solutions to Give Advisors, Clients More Options

Issued by: Securian Financial Group

Date: Nov. 29, 2016

ST. PAUL, Minn., November 28, 2016 -- Securian Financial Group has added four new annuity solutions to its suite of products designed to help financial advisors meet their clients’ retirement income needs.

“The number of Americans seeking retirement income guarantees increases literally every day,” said Chris Owens, Securian’s national sales vice president for retail life insurance and annuities. “Securian’s new solutions give financial advisors more options to meet this growing need.”

SecureLink Future: Fixed indexed annuity

Securian is adding a fixed indexed annuity — SecureLink Future™ — to its product lineup. For clients seeking retirement asset growth plus the protection of guarantees, SecureLink Future provides:

  • Four account options to allocate purchase payments
  • Indexed accounts linked to indices from S&P 500® and Barclays
  • Choice of seven or nine year surrender charge periods
Achiever Lifetime Income: Guaranteed lifetime withdrawal benefit for SecureLink Future

Advisors can offer clients more guarantees, along with flexible access to their SecureLink Future annuity, with Achiever Lifetime Income — an optional guaranteed lifetime withdrawal benefit (GLWB). Available at contract issue for an additional cost, Achiever Lifetime Income provides:

  • Guaranteed annual income of 3.5 percent to 7 percent of the benefit base (single), or 3 percent to 6.5 percent (joint)
  • An 8 percent enhancement added to the benefit base in each year with no withdrawals during the first 10 years
  • A 200 percent benefit base guarantee if no withdrawals are taken in the first 10 years
Premier Protector: Accelerated death benefit with spending flexibility

Premier Protector is a unique variable annuity optional death benefit available at contract issue for an additional cost. Beyond protecting and growing assets for beneficiaries, Premier Protector allows a client to accelerate access to the death benefit upon experiencing a permanent chronic or terminal illness. Once accelerated, the client has complete flexibility in how the benefit proceeds are spent.

MultiOption Advantage: Variable annuity for fee-based platforms

Securian has developed MultiOption® Advantage — a new variable annuity for fee-based platforms — for advisors and broker-dealers interested in diversifying their variable annuity product offerings.

Advisors can learn more about Securian’s expanded suite of annuity solutions by calling the company’s sales desk at 1-866-335-7355.

Annuities are issued by Minnesota Life.

An annuity is intended to be a long-term, tax deferred retirement vehicle. Earnings are taxable as ordinary income when distributed, and if withdrawn before age 59½, may be subject to a 10% federal tax penalty. If the annuity will fund an IRA or other tax qualified plan, the tax-deferral feature offers no additional value. Qualified distributions from a Roth IRA are generally excluded from gross income, but taxes and penalties may apply to non-qualified distributions. Please consult a tax advisor for specific information. There are charges and expenses associated with annuities, such as deferred sales charges for early withdrawals. Variable annuities have additional expenses such as mortality and expense risk, administrative charges, investment management fees and rider fees. Variable annuities are subject to market fluctuation, investment risk and loss of principal.

Guarantees are subject to the financial strength and claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company. Please consult with your firm before providing any products/services or materials listed here. Some products and optional features may not be available in all states and features may vary by state.

The Premier Protector Death Benefit is not long term care or nursing home insurance. Individuals may not elect this benefit if they are currently in a nursing home, skilled nursing facility or unable to perform any one of the six ADLs. Please review the prospectus for additional information on the ADLs. Withdrawals or surrender of contract value during the acceleration period will be subject to taxation in the same manner as any other withdrawal. Individuals may wish to consult a tax advisor before electing to accelerate the benefit. Variable products are not available in New York.

The Achiever Lifetime Income optional benefit establishes a Benefit Base for calculating guaranteed annual income. The Benefit Base provides no minimum contract value and is not available for withdrawal. Withdrawals exceeding allowed guidelines, or taken before the Benefit Date, may have a negative impact on the guarantees of this optional benefit. Optional benefits are available for an additional cost.
