Helpful Resources



You should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses of the variable annuity and its underlying investment options before investing. You may obtain a prospectus for the variable annuity and prospectuses or summary prospectuses (if available) for the underlying investment options by calling our Service Center at 800.888.2461. You should read the prospectuses carefully before investing. Investing in variable annuities involves risk and there is no guarantee of investment results.



Variable Annuities are long-term investments suitable for retirement planning.

Security Distributors is a subsidiary of SBL and SBL is a wholly owned subsidiary of Security Benefit Corporation ("Security Benefit").


Guarantees provided by annuities are subject to the financial strength of the issuing insurance company.

The NEA Retirement Program (“NEA Program”) provides investment products for retirement plans sponsored by school districts and other employers of NEA members and individual retirement accounts established by NEA members. Security Distributors and certain of its affiliates (collectively, “Security Benefit”) make these products available to plans and accounts pursuant to an agreement with NEA’s wholly owned subsidiary, Member Benefits (“MB”), which markets the NEA Program. Security Benefit has the exclusive right to offer the products directly or through other authorized broker/dealers, and MB in marketing the NEA Program generally may not enter into arrangements with other providers of similar investment programs or otherwise promote to NEA members or their employees any investment products that compete with the NEA Program products. Security Benefit pays an annual fee to MB under the agreement. You may wish to take into account this agreement and arrangement when considering and evaluating any communications relating to NEA Retirement products.
