  • Lincoln Financial Group Launches Lincoln Covered Choice 7 Fixed Indexed Annuity

    December 5, 2017 by Lincoln Financial Group

    RADNOR, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE:LNC) today announced that it has enhanced its fixed annuities offerings with the launch of Lincoln Covered ChoiceSM7, a single premium fixed indexed annuity with a seven-year surrender charge schedule. A fixed indexed annuity is designed for retirement or other long-term needs and is intended for a person who has sufficient cash or other liquid assets for living expenses and other unexpected emergencies.

    According to Brian Kroll, Lincoln’s head of Annuities Solutions, “As we celebrate our 50th anniversary in the annuities business, we are strengthening our suite of retirement products for our advisors and their clients. Lincoln Covered ChoiceSM7 will feature two living benefit rider options at an additional cost for retirement savers. The i4LIFE®Indexed Advantage option provides retirement savers income now if they need it, while the Lincoln Lifetime IncomeSMEdge provides retirement savers who have more time to grow their savings with the option to take income later. In addition, to provide retirement savers with more flexibility in their retirement income planning, the product moves from five-year age bands to one-year age bands starting at age 50 on Lincoln Lifetime IncomeSMEdge.

     

    Example of New Single Life Age Bands

     
    60   4.5%
    61   4.6%
    62   4.7%
    63   4.8%
    64   4.9%
    65   5.0%
    66   5.1%
    67   5.2%
    68   5.3%
    69   5.4%
    70   5.5%
     

    The chart above is a sample of the age-based income factors available. Age-based income factors range from ages 50 – 95+.

    For each age between 50 and 95, income factor bands will increase by 0.10%.

     

    “It’s all about giving clients the power of knowing they will have the income they need to live the retirement they want,” said John Kennedy, senior vice president and head of Retirement Solutions Distribution for Lincoln Financial Distributors. “Advisors want to give their clients an income solution that’s right for them, that’s why we continue to enhance our product suite to help meet the changing needs of the modern retirement saver.” According to Kennedy, Lincoln Covered ChoiceSM7 will be sold through the bank/wire/independent channels.
