Type Summary
Fixed Index Annuity

Fixed index annuities are tax-deferred insurance products that provide market upside, while protecting principal from market losses. Assets are allocated into indices that are designed to replicate market performance. These fixed index annuity indices are typically accompanied with cap rates, spreads, or participation rates.

Variable Annuity

Variable annuities are tax-deferred insurance contracts with an underlying value that fluctuates based on the performance of the underlying investments. These products often offer insurance benefits such as guaranteed income or a death benefit. The ability to annuitize assets into a guaranteed lifetime income stream is the fundamental feature that qualifies a...

We already have a provider for annuity rescue, what advantage does DPL bring?

The core premise of annuity rescue is to reduce product cost when possible. DPL takes that premise further by looking to not only reduce cost, but also meet other client needs. DPL consultants discuss client scenarios with advisors to provide different solutions that can improve clients' financial plans. Clients often want low-cost guaranteed income, tax efficient withdrawal strategies and/or principal protection, and DPL can provide these solutions.

My firm doesn’t address annuities clients already own, why should we?

Clients can often save thousands of dollars in product fees when it makes sense to move from a commissioned insurance product to a low-cost, commission-free product. In addition to providing potentially improved financial outcomes to your clients, offering insurance solutions as part of a holistic financial planning process enables you to expand services, potentially attract new clients and increase AUM.

My client owns a variable annuity, if they exchange it, do they need to get another VA?

No. A 1035 exchange can be used to move from a variable annuity into any other type of annuity. Your DPL consultant can work with you to find the product that best fits with the needs of your client’s financial plan.

Does DPL perform analysis of annuities my clients already own?

One of the services we provide to our members is the evaluation of clients' existing annuity policies to determine if it is possible to leverage current benefits to help meet the goals of the financial plan, or, if it makes sense to use the policy to fund a no-load annuity that may be able to achieve client goals more efficiently.
