What is Market Shield Plus? 

Market Shield Plus is a single premium deferred annuity with fixed and index-linked options. It allows you to build your long-term savings by earning interest as the market increases, while protecting your principal during periods of decline. Your funds will be growing on a tax-deferred basis, too.

Market Shield Plus offers three allocation options. There are 2 index-linked allocation options that earn interest on an annual basis, based on S&P500® performance. There is 1 fixed allocation option, which earns interest at a competitive current rate on an annual basis. 

No annual service charge
Earnings will never be less than zero.
