WEST DES MOINES, IA – June 19, 2013 -- Midland National Life Insurance Co. has introduced a flexible annuity solution featuring an enhanced death benefit. The MNL SecureVantageSM is the first fixed index annuity from Midland National that offers a built-in enhanced death benefit equipped with a stacking roll-up feature to help grow the death benefit value for heirs. Along with the growth potential for stock-market linked index accounts, this new fixed index annuity has a built-in Guaranteed Minimum Death Benefit (GMDB) which provides multiple growth opportunities through a combination of bonuses and a GMDB Stacking Roll-Up Credit, plus Interest Credits. This combination is designed to grow the GMDB Amount over the years to maximize the death benefit available to beneficiaries. The annuity product also provides clients the opportunity to add an optional lifetime income rider for a cost with stacking roll-up potential as well, which gives clients more flexibility.
“Clients are looking for flexibility and a way to provide a valuable death benefit for their families. Our focus was to create an annuity product with a built-in, enhanced death benefit at no additional charge, that offers the upside potential of stacking roll-up credits, ultimately increasing the payout to heirs,” stated Kevin Paulson, Vice President and Chief Distribution Officer. “This new annuity enhances our line of Midland National Vantage products, with our previous two successful annuity products that focused on accumulation with the MNL RetireVantageSM, and income with the MNL IncomeVantageSM. Now we offer even more flexibility with an enhanced death benefit, a lifetime income option, the upside growth potential from stacking, and increased withdrawal liquidity.”
The new annuity expands Midland National’s annuity product offerings and strengthens the value and solutions for those clients looking for accumulation, income, and a death benefit for heirs.
