Allianz 222 Fixed Index Annuity


Allianz 222 fixed index annuity is a 10-year retirement savings plan designed for a future retirement income for the rest of your life, and enhancing a death benefit for beneficiaries. 

First, Allianz 222 Annuity is a fixed index annuity that gives you the potential to earn interest in two different ways: You can earn interest based on your choice of several index options, or you can choose to receive fixed interest.

Second, you can receive a bonus on the Protected Income Value (PIV) of your annuity – which we describe later in this brochure – in two ways. You’ll receive a 15% premium bonus on any premium you place in your annuity in the first three contract years. You’ll also receive an interest bonus equal to 50% of any fixed and/or indexed earned interest for as long as you have your contract.

Third, you can receive lifetime withdrawal income increases in two ways once income withdrawals begin. The income from your PIV will increase each year based on the interest rate credited to your allocations, plus the 50% interest bonus. And if you should later be confined to a nursing facility, hospital, or assisted living facility, you can receive up to double your annual maximum income withdrawal with the Allianz Income Multiplier Benefit rider.

Finally, Allianz 222 Annuity gives you two death benefit options. Your beneficiary(ies) can receive the full accumulation value as a lump sum (this option doesn’t include any bonuses). Or, they can receive the PIV – including the premium and interest bonuses –in payments over a minimum of five years.

Allianz 222 may be a good addition to your overall retirement portfolio if you want a premium bonus, the potential for indexed interest and interest bonuses, and retirement income with the opportunity to increase but don’t plan to receive income right away.

Are Annuities FDIC Insured?

Fixed annuities are not FDIC insured, but they have similar protections for your money. An annuity is an insurance policy guaranteed by the insurance company’s claims-paying ability. The insurance companies are members of the state insurance guarantee associations in each state where they do business. Each state insurance guarantee association protects consumers in the unlikely event that their insurance company fails and defaults on their obligations to their consumers (limits vary per state).
