Annuity liquidity options

Add a 4-Year L-Share Liquidity Option or a C-Share Liquidity Option to your annuity and reduce or eliminate your contingent deferred sales charge (CDSC). Just keep in mind that liquidity options may have an additional charge and may not be available in all states or territories, or in combination with other options or features.

A CDSC pays for sales expenses such as commissions, promotions and sales materials. It is deducted from your cash value if you end your contract before the end of your surrender charge period.
