|Can be a good fit for someone who||Has at least $50,000 to contribute, is at least six years from retirement (due to EWC), is looking for potential growth, and would benefit from a 3% account bonus on net contributions made within the first six months of opening an account. This may be a good fit for someone changing jobs or becoming self-employed who has one or more 401(k) plans at former employers. Through consolidation into the LiveWell® Plus Mutual Fund IRA, your client may be able to save time and money through reduced fees and only one statement.
Before considering an IRA rollover, you and your client should carefully consider other options available, including: leaving money in the current retirement plan, rolling assets into the new employer plan, or installments or annuity payments (if applicable). Each situation is unique. In some cases, it may be beneficial for a client to leave assets in their current plan.
|3% account bonus1||When your client makes a contribution, including a rollover contribution within six months of opening the IRA, Sammons Institutional GroupSM, Inc. will add an additional 3% based on the net contribution(s) (adjusted for any prior withdrawals) to the IRA ("account bonus").|
|Early withdrawal charge (EWC)||An early withdrawal charge (EWC) will be applied to withdrawals in excess of 10% of the account anniversary value (or required minimum distribution amount if greater) within six years of the account anniversary. The date the first contribution is received is known as the account anniversary.
The EWC also applies to withdrawals by a beneficiary after your client's death.
The EWC is eliminated six years after the account anniversary.
The EWC schedule that applies during the first six years of the IRA is as follows:
|EWC-free withdrawals||During the first six years of the IRA, your client may take an annual EWC-free withdrawal of up to 10% of the account anniversary value (or the RMD amount if greater) without being subject to an EWC.
The amount of this withdrawal is not cumulative and will apply to withdrawals upon death of the IRA owner.
Note for first-year account holders: In the first account year, the EWC-free amount is calculated on all contributions received and includes the account bonus. In subsequent account years, the amount available without an EWC is calculated on the account anniversary value.
