Additional Important Information about Index Annuities

Index annuities are not a direct investment in the stock market. They are long-term insurance products with guarantees backed by the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company. They provide the potential for interest to be credited based in part on the performance of the specified index, without the risk of loss of premium due to market downturns or fluctuations. Index annuities may not be suitable or appropriate for all clients.

Index annuities offer the potential for index interest to be credited to the annuity but index interest is not guaranteed. It is possible that there will be periods where no interest is credited based on the performance of the underlying index. Index rate caps, spreads and participation rates on the index interest crediting accounts can also limit or reduce the amount of interest credited. Withdrawals may be subject to withdrawal charges.

Withdrawals may also be subject to federal and/or state income taxes. An additional 10% federal tax may apply if clients make withdrawals or surrender their annuity before age 59½.

Annuities are issued by American General Life Insurance Company (AGL) or by The Variable Annuity Life Insurance Company (VALIC), 2727-A Allen Parkway, Houston, Texas 77019. AGL and VALIC are members of the American International Group, Inc. (AIG) family of financial services companies. AIG is a leading global insurance organization serving customers in more than 100 countries and jurisdictions. The financial and contractual obligations are the responsibility of AGL or VALIC, and not AIG.
