About Annuities

Annuities are long-term, tax-deferred vehicles designed for retirement purposes and are subject to investment risk, including possible loss of principal. Annuities issued in all states except New York by Transamerica Life Insurance Company, Cedar Rapids, Iowa and in New York by Transamerica Financial Life Insurance Company, Harrison, N.Y. Annuities are underwritten and distributed by Transamerica Capital, Inc. 1801 California St., Suite 5200, Denver CO 80202, FINRA member. References to Transamerica may pertain to one or all of these companies. 

Securities products are sold by prospectus. Before investing, you should consider investment objective, risks, charges and expenses. This and other information is contained in the prospectus. Go to for prospectuses containing this and other information. Please read carefully. 

All guarantees are based on the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company. Annuity fees and charges include mortality and expense risk fee and administrative charge, surrender charges, annual fee, and investment option management fee. Additional fees may apply to optional benefits selected, including living benefit riders. 

If you elect an optional living benefit, there are certain underlying investment options offered in the policy that use a volatility control strategy. If you elect one of the optional living benefits, Transamerica requires the Policy Value to be allocated in a manner described in the contract, which may include a volatility control strategy. 

In periods of high market volatility, volatility control strategies could limit your participation in market gains; this may conflict with your investment objectives by limiting the ability to maximize potential growth of the Policy Value and, in turn, the value of any guaranteed benefit that is tied to investment performance. 

Volatility control strategies are intended to help limit overall volatility and reduce the effects of significant market downturns during periods of high market volatility, providing policy owners with the opportunity for smoother performance and better risk-adjusted returns. 

You pay an additional fee for the living benefits which, in part, pay for protecting the living benefit base from investment losses. Since the living benefit base does not decrease as a result of investment losses, volatility control strategies might not provide any meaningful additional benefit. 

If you determine that underlying funds with volatility control strategies are not consistent with your investment objectives, other investment options are available under the living benefits that do not invest in funds that utilize volatility control strategies. You cannot directly invest in an index and the annuity does not participate directly in any stock or equity investments. Withdrawals of taxable amounts are subject to ordinary income tax and may be subject to a 10% additional federal tax if withdrawn before age 59½. Transamerica Structured Index Advantage Annuity may be referred to as a variable annuity or modified guaranteed annuity in some states. Not available in Missouri, New York or Oregon. All policies, riders, and forms may vary by state and may not be available in all states.
