At the end of each term, earnings are credited; at that point, they may be affected by negative index performance. Earnings can, however, be limited by the policy's spread or cap rates. Some carriers may offer a feature that allows you to take advantage of index highs during your term.
You can pass assets to beneficiaries and avoid costly probate. Optional riders, available for an additional cost, can enhance the amount your beneficiaries may receive.
Most companies offer spousal continuation only upon the first spouse’s death and don’t pay a death benefit out until the second spouse passes. However, some carriers do offer a joint option that may cover the death of either spouse upon the first passing.
Growth potential can be achieved through the performance of the index or through a fixed interest rate earned on the fixed account — or a combination of the two. Your investment advisor can help you find the best combination for you.
