The question was: Which of the following is not a liquidity feature of a fixed indexed annuity?
a) Contract term
b) Maturity date
c) Penalty-free withdrawals
d) Nursing home waiver
e) Income riders or settlement options
f) d) and e)
g) None of the above
The answer is: g). These are 5 liquidity features that can be found in FIAs. Danette Kennedy, president of Gorilla Insurance Marketing, Inc., Waukee, Iowa, says these features are key to determining when and how much money the client needs from an FIA.
