Multi-Year Guaranteed Index Annuity

Guaranteed Growth Plus the Opportunity for More

As you prepare for retirement and a secure future, you may be considering the stability of a guaranteed return annuity. You also know from experience that the stock market can be a great way to grow assets. Ups and downs are to be expected but you may feel uncertain about the economic landscape overall.

So how can you participate in some of the ups with less concern about the downs?

American Fusion is a simple & powerful way to accomplish both objectives.

How does American Fusion work?
When you enter into a contract with American Life & Security Corp. (American Life), your initial premium has the opportunity to grow in two different ways. First, your initial premium will grow at a fixed, competitive interest rate for 5 years. This provides you with safe, predictable returns. This rate is locked in for the duration of the initial 5-year guarantee period and the interest grows tax-deferred.

Additionally, if the S&P 500 Index meets a defined performance threshold at the end of the contract term you will also earn a Bonus Interest Credit. This interest is credited to the accumulated value at the end of the contract term. In order to be eligible for the Bonus Interest Credit, no withdrawals may be taken from the contract except RMDs starting in year 2.

Consider a hypothetical situation where the guaranteed rate is 4.50%, index performance threshold is 25% and the bonus interest credit is 14%.

If the S&P 500 Index is up 25% or more at the end of the 5-year period, you are credited an additional 14% on your accumulated value which gives you a 7.27% annualized effective yield*.

If the S&P 500 Index returns less than 25% at the end of the the 5-year period, you receive the guaranteed fixed rate but you will not receive the bonus interest credit. You always receive the guaranteed interest rate, regardless of index performance.

*Annualized Effective Yield includes the Bonus Interest Credit, which is awarded at the end of the Guarantee Period if the S&P 500 Index reaches the 5-Year Index Performance Threshold at the end of the contract term and no withdrawals are taken other than RMDs. Annualized Effective Yield is not guaranteed.

Rates are as of 11/10/23 and are subject to change.
The options and flexibility you deserve:
Penalty-Free Withdrawals: You may withdraw your IRS-mandated Required Minimum Distribution starting in the second contract year without a penalty.* Any withdrawals except RMDs starting in year 2 will make the contract ineligible for the Bonus Interest Credit.

The Guaranteed Death Benefit pays the full account value without surrender charges or MVA to the beneficiary(ies) in the event of a policyholder’s death.

We also offer Spousal Continuation in the event that the policyholder dies and has a spouse as primary beneficiary. The contract then will continue for the remainder of the guarantee period.

At the end of the guarantee period**, you can choose to either withdraw the full value of the contract or roll your account into another term or new product.

Refer to the product rate sheet for more information about withdrawals, RMDs, and the Bonus interest credit rider.

*Not available until beginning of second contract year. Withdrawals of interest prior to age 59 1 ⁄2 may be subject to a 10% Federal income tax penalty. Withdrawals in excess of the 10% free withdrawal may be subject to contract surrender charges (see contract for details).

**There is a 30-day window at the end of the guarantee period where the contract owner must initiate a transfer or withdrawal of the assets without incurring a penalty. The contract will automatically renew at the same term with a 5% surrender schedule for each contract year at a renewal rate to be set at that time.
What makes us different?

Guaranteed growth PLUS the opportunity for more. American Fusion MYGIA makes it simple.

Guarantees are based on the claims paying ability of American Life & Security Corp. Withdrawals of taxable amounts are subject to income tax and may be subject to a market value adjustment, and if taken prior to age 591 ⁄2, a 10% IRS penalty may also apply. Withdrawals, which may be subject to surrender charges and a market value adjustment, have the effect of reducing benefits and values. Withdrawals in excess of the RMD (only available starting in year 2) will make the contract ineligible for the Bonus Interest Credit at the end of the contract term.

For Owners who are taking Required Minimum Distributions from IRAs, the annual RMD for the current year should be taken prior to qualified funds transfer to American Life. Any RMD in Year 1 is subject to surrender charge and MVA.

Investment in an annuity with qualified funds or in an IRA does not provide any additional tax benefits as the account is already tax deferred. There are no additional tax deferral benefits available for these assets and therefore an annuity should only be purchased to take advantage of the product’s other features, such as lifetime income and death benefits.

This material is intended to provide an overview of American Life’s Fusion MYGIA product and is not considered tax advice. You should consult with a tax advisor or legal counsel for advice specific to your personal financial situation. There are no additional tax deferral benefits for contracts held in IRAs as they are already a tax deferred account.
