Guaranteed increases each year you wait
Your lifetime income will be calculated based on the lifetime payout percentage in the year you begin taking lifetime income withdrawals. High Point 365® Select features some of the highest payout percentages in the industry. This graph shows how each year you wait to begin taking lifetime income withdrawals, your payout percentage is guaranteed to increase, so long as you follow the terms of the contract and rider.2
Lifetime payout percentages vary by New Heights Select product, age at contract issue, completed contract years, which version of the rider was selected and whether the single life or joint life option was elected. Your experience may be different. Excess withdrawals will reduce your future income. If an excess withdrawal reduces the contract value to zero the contract and rider will terminate.
