rate decides how much of the increase in the index will be used to calculate index-linked interest. For
example, if the calculated change in the index is 10% and the fixed indexed annuity participation rate is
70%, the index-linked interest rate for your fixed index annuity will be 7% (10% x 70% = 7%). A company may set
a different participation rate for newly issued index annuities as often as each day. Therefore, the initial
participation rate in your fixed annuity will depend on when it is issued by the company. The company usually
guarantees the participation rate for a specific period (from one year to the entire term). When that period is
over, the company sets a new participation rate for the next period.
Some fixed indexed annuities guarantee that the participation rate will never be set lower than a specified minimum
or higher than a specified maximum.

An index annuity is different from other fixed annuities because of the way it credits interest to your
annuity's value. Some fixed annuities only credit interest calculated at a rate set in the contract.
Other fixed annuities also credit interest at rates set from time to time by the insurance
Fixed indexed annuities credit interest using a formula based on changes in the index to which the
annuity is linked. The formula decides how the additional interest, if any, is calculated and credited. How much
additional index interest you get and when you get it depends on the features of your particular fixed indexed
annuity. JEFFREY SCOTT McLEOD ANNUITIES
