California Personal Choice Annuity Changes - Effective Immediately

As we have previously announced, all new California Personal Choice Annuity applications for policy holders age 65+ were required to purchase the Death Benefit Rider, resulting in a 35 basis point reduction to the crediting rate. 


Now, in order to comply with and minimize the cost of the new regulation, we will be adding the Death Benefit Rider to ALL Personal Choice applications. Subsequently, the crediting rate will be no longer be reduced by 35 basis points for policy holders age 65+; instead it will be reduced by 10 basis points to accommodate the inclusion of the Death Benefit Rider on all policies. 


What this means for you:

  • All new business must use the updated application packet which includes the Death Benefit Rider as part of the base policy as well as an updated disclosure form. The application packet is available on our Agent Portal. We will accept the old application until 10/31/2017.
  • Policies issued between 1/01/2016 and 10/31/2017 will have the Death Benefit Rider added to all issue ages 65+ without any change to their crediting rate. Pending rollovers and/or transfers must have funds received on or before 12/15/2017. 
  • Applications received on or after 11/01/2017, regardless of issue age, will include the Death Benefit Rider and the crediting rate will be decreased by 10 basis points.
