The Transamerica PrincipiumSM III Variable Annuity offers a lower-cost, 5-year surrender-charge schedule.
A comprehensive lineup of investment options from some of the most recognized money managers in the industry.
Automatic asset rebalancing
Maintains the asset allocation balance selected by automatically transferring money between investment options on a regular basis without generating a taxable event, so the original allocation objectives are maintained. Restrictions apply. Please see prospectus for details.
Dollar cost averaging
Allows for gradual investment over time, systematically buying more units when prices are low and fewer units when prices are high. This can potentially lower the average cost of variable units.
Dollar cost averaging requires regular investing regardless of fluctuating prices and does not guarantee profits or prevent losses in a declining market. Individuals should consider their financial ability to continue transfers through periods of both high and low price levels. Amounts allocated to the subaccounts of the separate account are subject to investment risk, including possible loss of principal. Restrictions apply. Please see prospectus for details.
During the accumulation phase, 12 free transfers between subaccounts are allowed each year without a fee. Restrictions apply. Please see prospectus for details. ($10 fee per transfer, thereafter.)
The opportunity to receive guaranteed lifetime payments through a variety of payment schedules and options, should the policy be annuitized. Annuitization is permitted after the 3rd policy anniversary. 1st policy anniversary in New York and Florida.
All guarantees, including optional benefits, are based on the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company.
1 M&E&A is an annual fee assessed daily and is a percentage of the subaccount policy value.
2 Up to $35 may be waived with net premiums paid or policy value of $50,000 or more; up to $50 may be waived with net premiums paid or policy value of $250,000 or more.
3 10% of premium payments, less any prior withdrawals in the same policy year. ($500 minimum)
Variable annuities are subject to investment risk, including possible loss of principal. Due to fluctuating market conditions, at the time of distribution, your annuity value may be more or less than the total of all premium payments.
