Penn Mutual Launches Two New Annuities
Designed to keep pace with consumer retirement needs
HORSHAM, Pa. – September 29, 2015 – In support of its ongoing commitment to meeting the evolving retirement needs of consumers, The Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company (Penn Mutual) is pleased to announce the immediate availability of two new annuity products, Premier Foundation Indexed Annuities and Guaranteed Foundation Fixed Annuity.
These additions to Penn Mutual’s annuity offerings will significantly enhance the company’s ability to serve a broad range of consumer needs.
Premier Foundation Indexed Annuities are designed to offer consumers market based growth potential tied to the performance of leading market indices (up to a cap)—without the downside risk of direct market investment. With a choice of three products, offering five, eight or 10 year surrender charge periods, Premier Foundation Indexed Annuities are geared for consumers with various time horizons who want tax deferred growth potential without risk to their principal. Each of the products also offers a unique combination of options and flexibility through:
- Two diverse indexed account options and a fixed account option
- Ability to allocate funds to multiple accounts and change allocations annually
- Optional living benefit riders for those with growth or inflation concerns
- Access to contract value through free withdrawals, Required Minimum Distributions (RMD’s), or partial annuitization*
Guaranteed Foundation Fixed Annuity is designed for consumers seeking growth to help build a source of lifetime retirement income, fill retirement income gaps or safeguard a portion of retirement savings to allow for more aggressive investing of other assets. It is geared for those who prefer predictable, tax advantaged growth with more flexibility than alternative savings vehicles, such as certificates of deposit.
The product offers:
- Guaranteed, tax-deferred, growth
- Guaranteed lifetime retirement income
- Access to contact value through free withdrawals, RMD’s, or partial annuitization*
- Competitive interest rates and a choice of guarantee periods
“When developing new products, we work hard to deliver solutions that fill a consumer need and enhance what is currently available to them in the marketplace,” says Andrew Martin, VP of Product Management at Penn Mutual.
Martin explains, “With the addition of these new products, we are able to offer consumers an expanded range of options to meet a broader spectrum of goals and risk tolerances. We believe these two annuities can help our clients achieve one of their ultimate life goals— living a financially secure retirement.”
