Plan for Steady Income with WoodmenLife Freedom Series Deferred Fixed Annuities
With a guaranteed minimum interest rate, deferred fixed annuities1 are a good option for planning how much income you’ll have available in retirement. You’ll choose whether you want to receive fixed or varying income payments. Varying income payments may be helpful if you plan to have higher expenses at certain times, like paying off property at the beginning of retirement or healthcare costs in your later years.
How a Deferred Fixed Annuity Works
What is a Freedom Series Deferred Fixed Annuity
A WoodmenLife Freedom Series deferred fixed annuity begins with an accumulation period where the money you put into the annuity (minus any applicable charges) earns tax-deferred interest as long as it remains in the annuity. At a future date, WoodmenLife will begin paying income to you or someone else you choose.
Why Choose a Freedom Series Deferred Fixed Annuity
5 Reasons to
Choose a Deferred Fixed Annuity
Build earnings in the annuity that are not taxable until you begin receiving payments, at a time when you may be in a lower tax bracket2.
Keep Adding Money
Continue contributing even after you’ve retired*.
Leave Money for Your Loved Ones
Leave the annuity value to a loved one you choose (if you pass away before receiving payments from the annuity). Your beneficiary will have to pay taxes on the amount he or she receives.
Count on a Minimum Guaranteed Interest Rate
Guaranteed interest rates are something you can count on. No matter what the current interest rate is, WoodmenLife Freedom Series fixed annuities will never earn less than the minimum guaranteed rate.
Access Funds Conveniently
Withdraw up to 10 percent of your annuity value each certificate year without paying a surrender charge3.

After you attain age 72, minimum distributions required by the IRS exceeding 10 percent of your annuity value can be withdrawn without paying a surrender charge. If you are under age 59 1/2 at the time of any withdrawal, a 10 percent IRS penalty may apply.
