  • Don’t plan to begin your retirement payments for at least a year (or many years from now).
  • Are looking for a source of retirement income that can generate more income through potential dividends.2
  • Seek a predictable1, guaranteed income payments that are not tied to the ups and downs of the market.
  • Are looking to create a guaranteed income stream in retirement that you can’t outlive.
  • Want to avoid the hassles of taking required minimum distributions during retirement.4
  • Want to create a guaranteed and predictable income stream with a one-time payment from available qualified or non-qualified funds, such as a:
    • 401(k), 403(b), IRA or Roth IRA
    • Savings account or certificate of deposit
    • Investment accounts
    • Inheritance or legal settlement
    • Sale of a business or property
  • Want a Cash Refund option so any money you don’t receive as income payments will go to your beneficiary upon your death—guaranteed.

Why choose a Select Portfolio Deferred Income Annuity?

When you purchase the Select Portfolio Deferred Income Annuity, you can feel confident that you’ll receive guaranteed income for life. Your guaranteed income payments will be unaffected by the economy and can grow through dividends. Whenever dividends are paid, you can use them to increase your lifetime income payments, take them as distributions in cash, or a combination of the two.

Flexible Income Plan Options

You have the option to choose income payments that continue for:

  • Your lifetime
  • Your lifetime plus another person’s lifetime (a spouse or partner, for example)

For either of the lifetime income plans, you also have the option to a guaranteed period of payments (called a Period Certain) of up to 20 years after your contract date.

Select the Deferral Period Death Benefit option when you choose your income plan for additional flexibility, including the ability to advance your start date, shorten or remove a Period Certain, or make a death benefit payable if you should die before you begin receiving income payments.

Cash Refund option

Once you start receiving income payments, safeguard your money with the Cash Refund option. With this option, any portion of your initial contribution—with the additional opportunity for growth through dividend additions and interest—that remain when you die will be paid to your beneficiary in a lump-sum amount … guaranteed! This option is also available with our Portfolio Immediate Income Plans, Select Portfolio Immediate Income Annuities, and Portfolio Deferred Income Plans.
