ForeThought ForeAccumulatioon Annuity Facts

Issue Ages

The issue ages for this annuity product is 0-85 years.

Minimum and Maximum Premiums

The minimum premium amount is $25,000.

The Maximum premium amounts are:

  • Ages 0-80 years – $1 million
  • Ages 81+ – $500,000

GMAV – Guaranteed Minimum Accumulation Value

This is a separate value that’s tracked separately from the contract’s value. If you wait till the end of the withdrawal charge duration without taking any withdrawals, your contract value will be compared to the GMAV, and you’ll receive the larger of the two. However, if you withdraw during the withdrawal charge duration, the GMAV equals to zero and automatically terminates.

Withdrawal Charges

Investors in the ForeAccumulation annuity may withdrawal up to 10% of their contract value without any charges annually. Amounts withdrawn above the 10% threshold are subjected to withdrawal charges according to either a 6-year or an 8-year withdrawal charge duration (based on what the annuity owner elected).

Nursing Care Waiver

Annuity owners can access their contract value without being subjected to any withdrawal charges if they’re confined to a nursing facility for a period of time not less than 90 consecutive days.

Terminal Illness Waiver

If an annuity owner suffers from a terminal illness after the first contract anniversary, they’re allowed to access their contract value free of any withdrawal charges.

Death Benefit

The remaining value of the contract is passed to elected beneficiaries with no additional charges upon the annuity owner’s demise.

Possible Advantages

  • Unlike many other annuities, where the nursing care waiver is only available after the first contract anniversary, investors can access this waiver immediately on or after the issue date of the policy.
  • Guaranteed Minimum Accumulation Value (GMAV) – for investors who do not take withdrawals within the withdrawal charge duration, the GMAV can potentially boost the contract value.
  • Flexible Investment – investors can choose from various interest crediting features, and customize their investment to their preferences.
