Annuities Offered by Oceanview Life and Annuity

Oceanview Life and Annuity specializes in fixed annuity products. These annuities earn a guaranteed rate of interest during an accumulation period before converting the value of the contract into a stream of income payments. Oceanview sells two types of fixed annuities: multi-year guaranteed annuities and fixed index annuities.

Multi-Year Guaranteed Annuities

Oceanview’s Harbourview and Sky Harbourview annuity series are what’s known as multi-year guaranteed annuities (MYGAs). When you purchase a MYGA, the interest your contract will earn is locked in for the duration of the annuity’s term.

The Harbourview Fixed Annuity series offered by Oceanview lets customers choose from periods of two, three, four, five, six, seven and 10 years. The Sky Harbourview series allows for a three-year, five-year, seven-year or 10-year period. Both MYGA series also feature death benefits and spousal continuation options.

Fixed Index Annuities

In addition to MYGA annuities, Oceanview Life and Annuity also provides fixed index annuities (FIAs). These annuities earn interest based on two factors: a minimum fixed interest rate that’s guaranteed for the contract (1% for Oceanview’s FIA products) and a cap rate that’s tied to the performance of an equity market index like the S&P 500.

Oceanview Life and Annuity’s FIA products provide premium protection along with maximum growth potential. The contract on the FIA also allows you to withdraw up to 10% of your annuity’s value each year without penalty after the first year of the contract.
