GLENMONT, N.Y., Nov. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Effective immediately, American National announces the addition of a new tax-deferred fixed annuity and a limited premium whole life product, Limited Pay Whole Life Insurance.

Century Plus Annuity

This single premium, fixed, deferred annuity may be the right choice for someone who is a conservative investor who wants to protect their principal while safely growing their money at a fixed rate. Regardless of market conditions, the original premium will remain protected.

Century Plus Annuity:

  • Allows for tax-deferred growth.
  • Includes a 5.0% first year interest rate enhancement.

  • Includes a minimum guaranteed interest rate based on the NAIC Index.

Limited Pay Whole Life

This whole life insurance product is designed for individuals purchasing life insurance for any qualified 401(a) plan, including section 412(e)(3) plans.  Rather than paying premiums for the life of the policy, premiums are paid for a set number of years while keeping the level, guaranteed death benefit and cash value common to whole life policies. Premiums are payable either to age 65 or for 10 years, depending on the issue age of the insured.
