INCOME

ANNUITY.

A retirement income solution now

with a Death Benefit Guarantee.

A CommInsure Lifetime Income Annuity now offers even more comfort, protection and value with a Death Benefit Guarantee that allows retirees to provide for their loved ones, in the event of an untimely death.

A smooth transition and comfortable, enjoyable retirement lifestyle requires careful planning.

Fortunately, retirees don’t have to do it alone. With the help of a professional financial adviser, they can build a robust savings and investment portfolio which will deliver a regular, reliable income for life. CommInsure also offers a range of innovative retirement income solutions to help retirees achieve their retirement goals while managing key risks like market risk, interest rate risk and longevity risk.

With the CommInsure Lifetime Income Annuity, investors and advisers can secure a regular, stable income stream regardless of how investment markets are performing. CommInsure’s annuity payments aren’t affected by share market volatility or interest rate fluctuations which is critically important in the prevailing lower growth, lower return environment.

With the CommInsure Lifetime Income Annuity, investors have the peace and security of knowing they have a guaranteed income stream for life.

RETIREMENT IS

AN EXCITING NEW

CHAPTER IN A

PERSON’S LIFE.

It’s a time to unwind, relax and explore different

possibilities, but for many Australians it also brings

new challenges.

(3)

In addition, a CommInsure Lifetime

Income Annuity now offers even

more comfort, protection and value

with a Death Benefit Guarantee,

allowing retirees to provide for

their loved ones in the event of

their untimely death.

By choosing a CommInsure Lifetime Income Annuity with a Guaranteed Period, new investors will now receive CommInsure’s Death Benefit Guarantee.

(4)

WHAT IS THE DEATH

BENEFIT GUARANTEE?

The Death Benefit Guarantee ensures that if an investor

dies after starting their annuity but before the end of their

chosen Guaranteed Period, a guaranteed lump sum

payment will be paid to their beneficiary or estate.

The value of the Death Benefit Guarantee will depend on the initial amount invested and the total number of regular payments that have already been made at the time of death.

The value of the Death Benefit Guarantee decreases as the policy approaches the end of the Guaranteed Period. After this point, investors will continue to receive their regular income payments but when they pass away, no additional payment will be made to their estate.

THE FORMULA FOR CALCULATING

THE DEATH BENEFIT GUARANTEE IS:

(See example to the right) Purchase price

Total number of regular payments to be paid over

the Guaranteed Period

The number of

regular payments made as at the date of death

The Guaranteed Period is any full year term (up to the

owner’s life expectancy) of a Lifetime Income Annuity

chosen by the investor.

WHAT IS THE

GUARANTEED PERIOD?

The term, or length of time, is chosen by the investor at the commencement of the policy and ensures that an amount at least equal to the Death Benefit Guarantee will be paid to their beneficiaries or estate if they die during that period. During the Guaranteed Period the annuity also has a withdrawal value which is determined at the time of withdrawal with reference to the remaining guaranteed payments.

With a CommInsure Lifetime Income Annuity, retirees have the option of choosing a maximum Guaranteed Period up to their life expectancy. The table to the right shows the maximum Guaranteed Period for men and women, based on their age at investment. The maximum Guaranteed Period is based on a person’s age and their life expectancy.

Maximum Guaranteed Periods

While it’s common for retirees who want maximum security and peace of mind to choose a Guaranteed Period up to life expectancy, investors also have the option of choosing a shorter Guaranteed Period or no Guaranteed Period, depending on their personal circumstances.

HOW IT WORKS

They own their apartment and both receive a part pension. John has set up an account-based pension, which comfortably covers their living expenses.

John is concerned about how long his account-based pension will last given the recent market volatility. He’s also concerned about outliving his savings. He wants to supplement his existing income and better manage his cashflow to spend more on lifestyle costs like travel, new furniture and renovations while protecting Julie and himself against market risk, longevity risk and potential changes to the Age pension. John’s financial adviser has

recommended that he use the remainder of his superannuation to buy a lifetime annuity, as part of a broader retirement savings portfolio.

He chooses to invest the remainder of his superannuation of $100,000 in a CommInsure Lifetime Income Annuity with a Guaranteed Period of 20 years. Based on John’s age, the superannuation annuity income stream he will receive annually will be tax-free income for life, even if he lives beyond his current life expectancy of age 85. John has peace of mind knowing that should he unexpectedly pass away in the next 20 years, CommInsure’s Death Benefit Guarantee gives Julie, as the reversionary beneficiary, the option of receiving a lump sum payment or continuing to receive regular payments. The table to the right illustrates how the Death Benefit Guarantee is calculated in this scenario if regular payments are made annually.

HOW IT WORKS ( cont )

MARGARET

85 WIDOW

Case study:

She recently sold the family home and downsized to an apartment in a retirement village. As a result, Margaret is no longer eligible for the Age Pension because her assets now exceed the assets test threshold.

Margaret would like to invest the money left over from the sale of her home to create a regular income stream which would cover her living expenses, any aged care and medical costs, and allow her to continue spoiling her grandchildren. However, at her age, Margaret won’t accept any market risk. Her main priorities are preserving her wealth to make sure she doesn’t become a burden on her family, and leaving an inheritance for her grandchildren. Margaret decides to invest $200,000 in a CommInsure Lifetime Income Annuity, nominating annual payments with a maximum Guaranteed Period up to life expectancy.

The annuity guarantees Margaret will receive annual income payments for the rest of her life.

Importantly, if Margaret passes away during the Guaranteed Period of 8 years, her nominated estate will receive a lump sum payment.

For example, if Margaret passed away at age 88, she will have already received

$59,460 in annual payments, and importantly, her estate would receive a lump sum DBG payment of $125,000. If, however, Margaret lives beyond her life expectancy, she still has the peace of mind of knowing that her annuity will provide a regular income for as long as she lives.

The table to the right illustrates how the Death Benefit Guarantee is calculated in this scenario.

WITHDRAWAL

BENEFIT AND HOW

IT’S CALCULATED

Life is full of unexpected surprises which is why a

CommInsure Lifetime Income Annuity with a Guaranteed

Period provides investors with the flexibility to withdraw

funds from their investment early should their

circumstances change.

While an annuity is designed to provide investors with a regular guaranteed income and not on-call access to capital, a CommInsure Lifetime Annuity offers a Withdrawal Benefit during the Guaranteed Period.

The value of the Withdrawal Benefit depends on three factors:

• Prevailing interest rates at the time of withdrawal;

• Regular payments remaining to the end of the Guaranteed Period; and

• Requirements under the Life Insurance Act.

The tables to the right illustrate the value of the Withdrawal Benefit based on current interest rates and the impact if interest rates were to rise or fall by 1 per cent.
