  • The Standard Launches Index Select Annuity with LPL Financial

    August 6, 2019 by Standard Insurance Company

    PORTLAND, Ore.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Standard Insurance Company (The Standard) announced today that the Index Select Annuity is now available through LPL Financial, LLC. LPL Financial is the largest independent broker-dealer in the United States.

    This single premium deferred fixed index annuity has returns based on the upside performance of the popular S&P 500® index. Clients can choose one or all of these options: index crediting with a cap rate, index crediting with a participation rate or fixed interest crediting.

    Using the participation rate index crediting strategy, clients earn interest based on a percentage of the growth of the S&P 500 index each year. The earnings are then locked into the index interest account value and will not be reduced because of negative index performance in the future.

    “The participation rate index crediting strategy is a great option because earned interest is not limited by an annual index rate,” said Rich Lane, director of Individual Annuity Sales and Marketing at The Standard.

    The Standard also has a longstanding track record of consumer-friendly annuity products and service practices, all backed by the financial strength of The Standard including 100+ years of “A” rating or higher from A.M. Best Company.

    For more information, please contact The Standard at 800.378.4578 or www.standard.com/annuities.
