We accept non-qualified stretch business on a
variety of our competitive annuity products

A non-qualified stretch is one strategy than can extend the tax-deferred status of an annuity when passed to a beneficiary1. Check out our non-qualified stretch brochure for more information. Here’s how it can work with our products:

For new business beginning July 16…
Available on the following fixed index annuities:

  • Performance Choice® 8 and 12
    Not available on premium bonus versions; 8 Plus and 12 Plus
  • NAC RetireChoice® 10
    Not available if the optional additional benefit rider (ABR) is elected
  • NAC VersaChoiceSM 10
    Available with or without optional enhanced liquidity benefit (ELB) rider; not available if a guaranteed lifetime withdrawal benefit (GLWB) is elected
For current inforce contracts…
Non-qualified stretch is available at the time of death claim on most inforce annuities including traditional fixed, fixed index, and multi-year guarantee annuities. If the inforce contract had a GLWB, and has any remaining accumulation value, the GLWB will terminate and the remaining accumulation value (death benefit) is eligible for non-qualified stretch.
