Heritage Maximizer Enhanced Death Benefit Rider Option Boosts LibertyMark Value by 30%
This consumer-friendly rider boosts the annuity death benefit by 30% after contract Year 3, allowing consumers to leave their loved ones a substantial financial legacy.
Available as an option with LibertyMark non-bonus fixed indexed annuities issued by Americo Financial Life and Annuity Insurance Company, Heritage Maximizer provides a death benefit equal to 130% of the LibertyMark account value at death.
“The Heritage Maximizer helps clients reach their objectives without the need for underwriting,” explained Legacy Chief Marketing Officer Niju Vaswani. “Unlike other death benefit riders that base the benefit only on the growth portion of the annuity, Heritage Maximizer can enhance a client’s legacy by 30% of the entire annuity account value,” he said.
If, for example, the annuity’s account value grows from $100,000 to $150,000 at death, the Heritage Maximizer death benefit would be $195,000—or $45,000 more than beneficiaries would receive without the rider.
For an annual charge of 0.30%, Heritage Maximizer provides great value for consumers seeking to leave their annuity proceeds to loved ones. The rider is available in 35 states, including California, Florida, and Texas.
The LibertyMark Series and Heritage Maximizer rider are offered exclusively through agents contracted with Legacy which agents can access through Financial Security Associates.
