  • Lincoln Financial Group Enhances Its Fixed Indexed Annuities With Innovative Crediting Strategies

    March 18, 2024 by Lincoln Financial Group

    RADNOR, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE: LNC) continues to innovate by introducing the 1 Year S&P 500® Dual Trigger (Dual Trigger) account option for its fixed indexed annuities – designed to provide upside growth potential in up, flat and even down markets. The Dual Trigger offers investors a dynamic solution that is adaptive to the market, providing more growth opportunities with 100% downside protection.

    This enhancement comes as consumers express concerns about inflation (66%), losing money on investments (42%) and market volatility (38%), according to recent data from Lincoln Financial1. The same recent study also shows that most consumers (61%) are looking for investments that offer an equal mix of growth and protection.

    “The demand for products that protect principal and offer growth opportunities will continue to be strong in the coming years, with industry experts forecasting that fixed indexed annuity sales will reach nearly $100 billion in 20252,” said Daniel Herr, senior vice president, Annuity Product Management at Lincoln Financial Group. “Lincoln Financial’s product enhancements are designed to help meet market needs by simplifying strategies to allow investors opportunities to grow their account value while remaining protected against volatility.”

    In addition to the Dual Trigger option, Lincoln is introducing the 1 Year S&P 500® 10% Daily Risk Control Trigger for Lincoln OptiBlend® fixed indexed annuity to offer opportunities for more growth potential in up or flat markets. With a trigger on the S&P 500® 10% Daily Risk Control index, clients may have the potential for a higher trigger crediting rate than one associated with the traditional S&P 500® index.

    Lincoln Financial fixed indexed annuities offer a variety of crediting strategies to support individuals’ unique investing goals.

    “Approximately 4.1 million Americans will turn 65 this year – and every year through 20273. As this historic surge reaches retirement age, Lincoln Financial is committed to helping investors protect their hard-earned savings,” said Tim Seifert, senior vice president and head of Retirement Solutions Distribution at Lincoln Financial Group. “With these new crediting strategies, financial professionals can provide clients with more choices to build wealth and confidence, no matter how the market performs.”

    As the most trusted annuity provider among all financial professionals4, Lincoln Financial continues to broaden its annuity product portfolio to help clients reach their retirement income goals. In 2023, Lincoln Financial worked with over 22,000 financial professionals to provide new annuity contracts to clients.

    A fixed indexed annuity is intended for retirement or other long-term needs. It is intended for a person who has sufficient cash or other liquid assets for living expenses and other unexpected emergencies, such as medical expenses. A fixed indexed annuity is not a registered security or stock market investment and does not directly participate in any stock or equity investments, or index.

    Lincoln OptiBlend® fixed indexed annuities (contract form ICC1515-619 and state variations) are issued by The Lincoln National Life Insurance Company, Fort Wayne, IN, and distributed by Lincoln Financial Distributors, Inc., a broker-dealer. The Lincoln National Life Insurance Company does not solicit business in the state of New York, nor is it authorized to do soContractual obligations are subject to the claims-paying ability of The Lincoln National Life Insurance Company.

    This annuity does not participate directly in any stock or equity investment and does not include the purchase of shares of stock or an index. The indexed accounts use an outside market index as a benchmark for determining indexed account earnings. Any dividends paid on the stocks on which the index is based do not increase the annuity earnings. All payments and values provided by the contract, when based on performance of the indexed account, are not guaranteed to be equivalent to the benchmarking index. The composition of the index and the methodology used by the index to calculate its performance are not guaranteed and may be changed at any time by the index provider.

    The exact terms of the annuity are contained in the contracts and any attached riders, endorsements and amendments, which will control the issuing company’s contractual obligations.

    Income taxes are due upon withdrawal and if withdrawn before age 59½, an additional 10% federal tax may apply. Withdrawals and surrenders may be subject to surrender charges and a Market Value Adjustment.

    There is no additional tax-deferral benefit for contracts purchased in an IRA or other tax-qualified plan, since they are already afforded tax-deferred status.
