FIVE Plus Case Study This hypothetical case study shows how the flexibility of Kansas City Life Insurance Company’s FIVE Plus variable annuity rider can provide clients with predictable, guaranteed withdrawals regardless whether their investments go up or down.


• • •

After Quinn and his wife Barbara sat down with their representative, they learned that if Quinn structured a Kansas City Life Century II variable annuity with the FIVE Plus option, they will have a set amount of income at retirement if no withdrawals are made until then. The 5 percent FIVE Plus bonus will give Quinn’s account a chance to grow 50 percent within the first 10 years after the rider is issued. The step-up benefit gives his account the opportunity to rise much faster if his investments go up. Quinn’s account is tax-deferred until withdrawals start and, if he likes, Quinn could start taking lifetime withdrawals at age 65.

Quinn Age 55 10 years to retirement

How it works Quinn received a $200,000 inheritance from his grandfather. Because he has 10 years before retirement and other retirement assets, he has two goals for his inheritance: protecting his future income source from downturns while taking advantage of his investments increasing in value.

Quinn’s initial investment of $200,000 with FIVE Plus at issue, no additional desposits were made and withdrawals will begin year 11. $400,000 IN AN UP MARKET If Quinn’s contract value is more than the GWB value on any step-up dates, he can choose the automatic step-up of his GWB.


$21,589 annually for life

$200,000 $15,000 annually for life

$100,000 IN A DOWN MARKET Income will continue for life even if contract value is depleted.

Variable annuities are long term investments designed for retirement. The value of the variable investment options will fluctuate and, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Withdrawals and other distributions of taxable amounts, including death benefit payouts, will be subject to ordinary income tax. If withdrawals and other distributions are taken prior to age 59½, a 10 percent federal tax penalty may also apply. A withdrawal charge may also apply. Withdrawals will reduce the value of the death benefit and any optional benefits. FIVE Plus withdrawals are not annuity payouts until the settlement phase begins. Annuity payouts generally receive a more favorable tax treatment than other withdrawals. FIVE Plus bonuses are not treated as earnings but the rider charges will increase. Once the FIVE Plus is elected, it may not be canceled for five years after the rider effective date. Asset allocation matches risk to a portfolio. It does not guarantee future results, assure a profit or protect against loss. All guarantees made within this document are backed by the claims-paying ability of Kansas City Life and assume compliance to the FIVE Plus rules and conditions outlined in the product prospectus.
