Midland National's Oak ADVantage MYGA offers a guaranteed interest rate for 3-, 5-, and 7-years, allowing advisors to utilize durations in line with client time horizons.
In 2020, fixed-rate deferred annuity sales, including MYGAs, totaled $51.7B, a 9% increase from 2019, and the highest fixed-rate deferred annuity sales since the Great Recession. Sustained market uncertainty in 2020 made MYGAs appealing to investors seeking saftey from market volatility with greater returns than CDs.
Why DPL Likes Oak ADVantageSM
Oak ADVantage offers multiple durations, each with its own interest rate. Premium is protected from market downturns and accumulates tax-deferred, allowing for greater growth potential when compared to traditional fixed income instruments like bonds.
With a minimum purchase of $50,000, Oak ADVantage may be more accessible for clients wanting a guaranteed rate of return without tying up significant assets. Additionally, the multiple durations can provide advisors with the opportunity to use multiple OakADVantage MYGAs in a laddered approach.
How to Think About Commission-Free MYGAs
When your client needs:
PRINCIPAL PROTECTION: Fixed annuities are typically used for clients nearing or in retirement, as they protect principal from market downturns, yet provide a minimum guaranteed rate of return.
FIXED INCOME: Fixed annuities provide a consistent stream of income for clients that are looking to de-risk their portfolios from equities.
CASH REPLACEMENT: Fixed annuities can be used instead of cash investments, such as CDs or money market funds, to help generate better returns subject to the terms of the contract.2

The purchase of an annuity within a retirement plan that already provides tax deferral under sections of the Internal Revenue Code results in no additional tax benefits. An annuity should be used to fund a qualified plan based upon the annuity’s features other than tax deferral. All annuity features, risks, limitations, and costs should be considered prior to recommending the purchase of an annuity within a tax-qualified retirement plan. In addition to surrender charges, withdrawals are subject to income tax.
Withdrawals prior to age 59 1/2 may also be subject to a 10% federal tax penalty.
