What is a Death Benefit?

Another important feature of some annuities is the death benefit provision◊. The annuity issuer guarantees,* at a minimum, that upon your death the total amount of your premiums are paid to your beneficiaries.The annuity may also offer an increased payment that includes interest earned as part of the death benefit. However, if the annuity-owner has taken excess withdrawals or had payouts that equal or exceed the initial premium payment, the death benefit will be reduced or depleted.

ADVISOR INSIGHT

“Death benefit provisions are a great way to protect your funds for your beneficiaries in the event of your passing. They come standard on most annuities but you can also buy enhanced benefits as well to secure greater protection. These riders are often used when the health of the owner is unsure or to grow the assets for their heirs. These work as a nice alternative for someone that is uninsurable and wants to maximize protected growth for their beneficiaries.”
