The Preserve Multi-Year Guaranteed Annuity 10 is a deferred multi-year guarantee annuity issued by Guggenheim Life & Annuity Company.
This annuity is a premium banded product. The interest rate you earn will vary depending on the amount of premium you deposit (see Rate Details below). Currently, the highest 10 year guarantee period annual yield is 4.45% on premium amounts of $250,000 - $1,000,000. This is the guaranteed annual yield, including bonuses if applicable, for the initial guarantee period term, up to the first penalty free full withdrawal window. The Preserve Multi-Year Guaranteed Annuity 10 has a full penalty free withdrawal window after 10 years.
During the time in which the annuity is subject to surrender penalties, there are policy provisions that allow partial access on a penalty free basis. In the first contract year, this annuity provides interest only withdrawals. Beginning in the second contract year, up to 10% (noncumulative) of the contract value may be withdrawn from the annuity each contract year without penalty.
This annuity also waives withdrawal penalties upon death. Your named beneficiary(ies) will receive a death benefit equal to the full accumulation value. A beneficiary may choose to receive their death benefit in either a lump sum or select an available annuitization option.
Details on additional penalty waivers can be found in the Penalty Free Withdrawal Provisions section below.
