Income Rider Terminology
Income Account Value (IAV)
A separate but theoretical account value maintained along side of the traditional account value. The IAV determines the annual amount of income that can be withdrawn upon activation of the income stream. The IAV can never be withdrawn in one lump sum. See Withdrawal Percentage.
A one-time bonus to the Income Account Value, credited at issue.
The rate credited to the Income Account Value on an annual basis.
A percentage of the Income Account Value, which is available annually, based on the owner/annuitant’s age. This rate is set at the time income is started. This rate is usually based on age of the owner/annuitant at the time income begins.
Represents an estimate of the percentage of initial premium the client will receive for their first income payment. This score provides a simple way to rank and compare the withdrawal payments of different riders.
Minimum Start Age
The minimum age at which the owner/annuitant can begin taking income from the rider. This age is set between 50 and 60 years for most riders.
The number of years in which the owner/annuitant must wait in deferral before starting income withdrawals from the rider.
The annual fee charged to the Account Value as a percentage of either the Income Account Value or the Account Value. Most riders use the IAV as the basis for the charge. In either case, the fee is always taken from the AV.
