The Century Plus is a deferred traditional fixed annuity issued by American National Insurance 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 first year yield is 6.80% (including bonuses if applicable) on premium amounts of $100,000 - $1,000,000. The highest 10 year term current annual yield is 2.29% (including bonuses if applicable) on premium amounts of $100,000 - $1,000,000. This assumes that the current base interest rate remains unchanged up to the first penalty free full withdrawal window, which is not guaranteed. The Century Plus 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.
Beginning with the first contract year, and each year thereafter, this annuity provides up to 10% (noncumulative) of the contract value may be withdrawn from the annuity each contract year without penalty.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.
