Choose a path for retirement wealth building backed by the assurance of solid protection. Choose Marquis SP. A single premium deferred fixed indexed annuity issued and guaranteed by The Lafayette Life Insurance Company, Marquis SP helps you create your own path to retirement confidence.
Choice provides the opportunity to help shape your future. Potential offers avenues for your efforts – without the uncertainty of being invested in the market. Marquis SP gives you both choice and potential… in one annuity that helps ready your path to retirement security.
Marquis® SP offers the choice to split premium among four allocation options:1
Once interest is credited — for the indexed interest options at the end of the crediting period — the Marquis SP protects that interest from losses due to negative changes in the indexes associated with the options. The Marquis SP also provides access to guaranteed lifetime income.5
Predictable… sustainable… income for life. Marquis SP’s optional Guaranteed Lifetime Withdrawal Benefit (GLWB) can secure it for you. The “lifetime payout amount” cannot be exhausted by market losses or guaranteed withdrawals.6 The result: An income stream you can’t outlive.
Retirement certainty comes in knowing income is yours for the life of the covered person or persons (owner and spouse if the spousal benefit is elected7). Just choose the benefit at issue (covered persons must be between ages 45-80) for an added annual charge.8 If the younger covered person is 60 or older, you can begin annual withdrawals of the benefit immediately. Otherwise you can begin them the first index year after the younger covered person turns 60.
Marquis SP brings together choice and potential for your retirement goals. Now discuss your next steps with your financial professional.
1 The contract owner will choose one or more of the four allocation options at time of purchase. The contract is credited with the guaranteed minimum interest rate (GMIR) until the sweep date, when the account value will be transferred to the chosen allocation options. At the end of each crediting period, the owner may transfer the account value in that option among the four options. Options may be added or eliminated in the future.
2 Interest rates are declared in advance, guaranteed for one Index Year, and will never be less than 1%.
3 Interest is determined by a formula that factors in the performance of the S&P 500 during the crediting period, adjusted by a participation rate guaranteed to be no less than 10% and limited to a maximum amount of interest credited by an Interest Rate Cap guaranteed to be no less than 1%.
4 Interest is determined by a formula that factors in the performance of the Goldman Sachs GSMAC Index during the crediting period, adjusted by a Participation Rate guaranteed to be no less than 10%. There is no Interest Rate Cap.
5 Withdrawals may be subject to charges. Withdrawals of taxable amounts will be subject to ordinary income tax and, before age 59 ½, generally will be subject to a 10 percent IRS penalty tax.
6 If the owner withdraws more than the annual lifetime payout amount, the guaranteed amount will usually decrease and the rider may terminate. Once purchased the rider cannot be voluntarily terminated until the beginning of the 6th index year. Once terminated, it cannot be reinstated.
7 Spousal benefit not available in CT.
8 Annual charge for individual and spousal GLWB rider is 0.95% (1.50% maximum) charged on Benefit Base at start of Index Year. Instead of charging more for the spousal GLWB, the annual lifetime payout amount for the spousal benefit is 90% of the amount under the individual benefit. Spousal benefit not available in CT. The charge is deducted from Account Value at the end of Index Year (before interest crediting).
