Shield Level Select Access Benefits

Discover how protection and participation with no annual fees can lead to a brighter financial future.

Protect Your Retirement Assets
Rely on the Shield Option with a percentage level of protection specified for your investment.

Participate in Growth Opportunities
Through a selection of three market indices, Shield is an index-linked annuity, which doesn’t invest directly in the chosen index or indices but rather tracks their performance.

Pay No Annual Fee
Unlike many financial products, you pay no annual product fees with a Shield annuity. An asset-based fee is paid to your advisor.
