Modern Woodmen expands product offerings with fixed index annuity

The MyLinked℠ Annuity is now available

Modern Woodmen of America has introduced its new fixed indexed annuity, the MyLinked℠ Annuity. This single premium deferred annuity with index-linked crediting options is the newest product in the fraternal financial services organization’s lineup.

Available in most states, Modern Woodmen’s MyLinked℠ Annuity has more growth potential than a traditional fixed annuity, without the risk of market losses. It’s intended to help those close to retirement who want to protect and build their nest egg.

This product offers a fixed-interest track and four index-linked tracks. All designed to help people align their potential for growth with their risk appetite.

The fixed-interest track offers a current interest rate, guaranteed for one-year terms. The four index-linked tracks buy at the current index value and are credited on the annual renewal date, based on the change in index value over that period.

Interest crediting for the indexed tracks is linked to two indices designed by Franklin Templeton – the Franklin US Core Index and Franklin US Core Balanced Index.  For information about these index options, visit these Franklin Templeton websites:

Available at additional cost, is an optional guaranteed lifetime withdrawal benefit rider which can provide future guaranteed lifetime income during retirement.

“We’re proud to offer this new product,” says Modern Woodmen’s Chief Distribution & Marketing Officer and Senior Vice President Jeff Sowards. “It’s a way to help people secure hard-earned retirement money, with the opportunity for growth. It’s another way Modern Woodmen can support strong financial futures.”
