R. RETURN WITHOUT RISK. Get the upside of the market growth without the downside risk (certain restrictions). The worst scenario is to earn ZERO. Remember: Zero is a Hero.
I. INCOME THAT YOU CAN NEVER OUTLIVE. Receive “Permanent” income instead of “Maybe” Income. You can turn on or turn off the income stream as needed. Receive secure income for life that can never be reduced. Purchased riders can offset and often outpace inflation.
N. NO FEES, CHARGES, SURPRISES, GUESSWORK. 100% of your money goes to work for you. If you choose to add enhancement riders, you know upfront what the cost will be. Everything is stated in the contract and can’t be altered.

(Taxes will be paid only when withdrawals are made.) This enhances the compounding factor. Most financial professionals will tell you: “Never pay taxes on money you are not using.”
