New York Life offers multiple Fixed Deferred annuities that may have different features, such as different initial interest rate guarantee periods, current interest rates, return of premium benefit, and guaranteed lifetime withdrawal benefits. A policy’s initial interest rate will be guaranteed for a specific term of years, and that once that term ends, a new interest rate will apply. The new rate could be lower than the original rate.
During the initial rate guarantee period, a surrender charge may apply to any withdrawal that exceeds the surrender charge free amount provided by the policy. Although longer initial rate guarantee periods traditionally provide a higher guaranteed interest rate, this is not always the case. Similar or higher rates could be available at shorter durations. Over time, interest rates may increase or decrease based on then-prevailing market conditions. As a result, selecting a longer rate guarantee period may forgo the potential to receive higher interest rates during that period, but also protects against lower rates during that same period.
