Most Beneficial Rate: Indexed Annuity Care offers your clients the opportunity to receive the best declared interest (or cap, or par) rate available between the date their application is received in the Home Office, and the effective date of the contract, if fully funded within 60 days of application. This feature is intended as an easy-to-do-business provision to provide you and your clients the peace of mind to know that they can receive the best declared rates during the application process. Annuity Care also offers this feature for 1035/transfer monies only.
