National Western Life Makes "Revolutionary" Product Announcement

AUSTIN, Texas, Aug. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- National Western Life Insurance Company (NWLIC) has released two new fixed indexed annuities, the NWL® Revolution and the NWL® Revolution Plus Liquidity, for distribution by the company's independent wholesalers and agents.  These flexible premium products offer an Elevation Fee for potentially higher caps and participation rates and a "built in" Withdrawal Benefit Rider without a fee.

"Features for fees are common in fixed indexed annuities," said R. Bruce Wallace, CLU, National Western Life's Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer.  "In the case of the NWL® Revolution and the NWL® Revolution Plus Liquidity, the fee applies to the part of the policy that is central to fixed indexed annuities, accumulation potential, by way of possibly higher indexed linked interest terms."

Wallace concluded, "The NWL® Revolution and the NWL® Revolution Plus Liquidity are excellent additions to our already market relevant suite of annuity products."

These annuities are currently available in 38 states.  For more information, licensed insurance professionals are encouraged to contact their local National Western Life distributor or view at www.nationalwesternlife.com (product terms and availability may vary by state).
