PETALUMA, CA, September 19, 2017—Legacy Marketing Group® is excited to announce the launch of FlexMark Select(SM) Series single premium deferred index annuities, its newest custom-designed proprietary FIA series. Developed with “A” rated Ameritas Life Insurance Corp.,* FlexMark Select is designed for consumers seeking more choice, control, and flexibility, and offers opportunities for upgraded earnings potential, upgraded income riders, and up to 20% liquidity potential.
“This product series is designed to give Producers the ability to work together with their clients to customize their FIA to meet their needs,” said Legacy President, Preston Pitts. “With FlexMark Select, consumers have the power to experience retirement their way.”
Consumers looking for greater earnings potential can receive higher caps and participation rates for a fee, move from a “standard” to “upgraded” rate band once their accumulation value reaches $200,000 or more, and select from interest crediting strategies that include two no-cap participation rate strategies based on a multi-asset proprietary index. “With this structure, consumers have the flexibility to get more for their money,” added Mr. Pitts.
This strong growth potential coupled with multiple income options that include a no-cost and an upgraded income rider (for fee)** provides powerful income opportunities. With an upgraded rider, consumers have their choice of payout options, including a lifestyle payout that provides higher initial income, and an optional income doubler for qualifying health conditions.
Consumers concerned about life’s emergencies have multiple ways to access their money, penalty free, including one-time extra emergency access starting the second year and waivers for declining health.† FlexMark Select is available with or without a premium bonus.
This new product series is offered exclusively through agents contracted with Legacy and is currently available in 28 states and the District of Columbia, with more state approvals coming.
