Products Variable Annuities
A variable annuity is a long-term investment designed to create lifetime income in retirement. Investment returns will fluctuate and the principal value, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original investment. Withdrawals or surrenders may be subject to contingent deferred sales charges. Withdrawals and distributions of taxable amounts are subject to ordinary income tax and, if made prior to age 59 1/2, may be subject to an additional 10% federal income tax penalty. Withdrawals can reduce the living and death benefits and account value.
Variable annuities offered by Prudential Financial companies are available at a total annual insurance cost of 0.55% to 1.85%, with an additional fee related to the professionally managed investment options. Please see the prospectus for additional information
All guarantees, including optional benefits, are backed by the claims-paying ability of the issuing company and do not apply to the underlying investment options. Guarantees do not apply to the safety or investment performance of the underlying subaccounts in the variable annuity.
Optional living and death benefits may not be available in every state and may not be elected in conjunction with certain optional benefits. Optional benefits have certain investment, holding period, liquidity, and withdrawal limitations and restrictions. The benefit fees are in addition to fees and charges associated with the basic annuity. Please see the prospectus for more information.
Tax deferral is provided by an Individual Retirement Account (IRA) and other qualified retirement plans. A variable annuity contract should be used to fund a qualified retirement plan to benefit from the annuity’s features other than tax deferral, including lifetime income payout option, the death benefit protection, and the ability to transfer among investment options without sales or withdrawal charges.
