Securian variable annuities are issued by
MultiOption annuities and MyPath optional living benefits may not be approved in all states and product features and availability may vary by state. We reserve the right to limit or discontinue acceptance of future purchase payments after the contract is issued. This may limit the ability to increase the contract value through additional purchase payments. If an optional benefit is elected in the contract, this may also limit the ability to increase the value used to calculate the optional benefit.
The MyPath lifetime income suite of optional living benefits establishes a benefit base for calculating guaranteed annual income. The benefit base provides no minimum contract value or investment return and is not available for withdrawal. Withdrawals exceeding allowed guidelines, or taken before the Benefit Date, may have a negative impact on the guarantees of these optional living benefits. These benefits cannot be cancelled and require use of an approved asset allocation strategy. The guarantees are based on the financial strength and claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company and have no bearing on the performance of the variable investment options.
An annuity is intended to be a long-term, tax-deferred retirement vehicle. Earnings are taxable as ordinary income when distributed and, if withdrawn before age 59˝, may be subject to a 10% federal tax penalty. If the annuity will fund an IRA or other tax-qualified plan, the tax deferral feature offers no additional value.
There are charges and expenses associated with annuities, such as deferred sales charges for early withdrawals, mortality and expense risk, administrative charges, investment management fees and rider fees. Variable annuities are subject to market fluctuation, investment risk and loss of principal.
Variable annuities are sold by prospectus. You should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses of a portfolio and the variable insurance product carefully before investing. The portfolio and variable insurance product prospectuses contain this and other information. You may obtain a copy of the prospectus from your representative. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing.
