Interest Credit Lock In

Once interest has been credited, it is locked in and cannot be lost due to future market changes.


Most Indexed Annuities have multiple crediting strategies to choose from and can chage your mind each strategy term.

Fixed Interest Strategy

A fixed interst strategy provides a guaranteed rate or interest.  Interest is credited daily, and the fixed interest reate will be declared annually.

Indexed Crediting Strategies

Indexed crediting strategies provide interest credits that are tied to the performance of an external market index. Interest is credited at the end of the crediting strategy’s term. You’re guaranteed to never earn less than 0% interest for the strategy term – even during market downturns. This is one of the key features of a fixed indexed annuity.  In order to provide the annual floor protection of 0%, indexed crediting strategies limit the total interest you can receive. This limit is in the form of an adjustment – a cap, participation rate or spread. Next year’s adjustments will be declared at the end of each crediting strategy’s term.
