The Destinations fixed index annuity offers protection from index volatility while letting them choose how to grow their assets, either by using a fixed rate or selecting an exclusive index-linked crediting strategy option.

Here a just a few of the exciting benefits of the new Destinations FIA:

  • S&P 500 NeXt Monthly Point to Point with Replacement Rate – The three highest monthly S&P 500® index changes are replaced with the replacement rate declared at the beginning of each contract year.
  • An Innovative Index: American Equity’s exclusive volatility controlled multi-asset index. This index aims to deliver stability in many market conditions with a target volatility level of 5%. The dynamic design balances risk and adjusts toward recently outperforming assets across U.S. equities, U.S. treasuries and Gold futures.
  • Rate Integrity Rider: This rider allows for a waiver of surrender charges upon termination of the annuity contract. During the waiver election period, American Equity will waive surrender charges if they declare a participation rate for any crediting strategy included in the Rate Integrity Rider that is less than or equal to the surrender charge waiver rate. The surrender charge waiver rate for each crediting strategy is determined at the date of purchase. 
  • Free Withdrawals: After the first contract year, contract owners have the opportunity to take withdrawals up to 10% of the Contract Value without expense.
