Fidelity & Guaranty Life Launches Rewards Series Indexed Annuities

Dec 17, 2002, 00:00 ET from Fidelity & Guaranty Life

    BALTIMORE, Dec. 17 /PRNewswire/ -- Fidelity & Guaranty Life introduces
 their Equity Indexed Annuity Rewards Series(R), featuring two initial products
 in the series: Loyalty Rewards and Index Rewards.
     Loyalty Rewards is a flexible premium deferred indexed annuity that
 employs a 12% Account Value Escalator - a feature that adds a 1% guaranteed
 annual addition to the account value for 12 years.  Like the premium itself,
 the additions are eligible for future index growth.   With the Account Value
 Escalator, policyholders who stay with the company for the contract term find
 their loyalty amply rewarded.
     "The Account Value Escalator is like having an annuity within an annuity
 that ensures steady growth," said Mike Ebmeier, vice president of F&G Life's
 Brokerage Annuity channel.  "No matter what, the client receives annual
 additions equivalent to 12% of their initial premium if they stick with the
 policy.  These annual additions create a rising foundation on which to build
 future growth and retirement savings."
     Index Rewards, the companion product to Loyalty Rewards in the series, is
 a single premium deferred indexed annuity.  Index Rewards offers a shorter
 surrender charge schedule and a guaranteed 3% annual minimum guaranteed
 surrender value.
     Both Loyalty Rewards and Index Rewards include:
     -- The flexibility to choose from five account value options, including
        the Dow Jones Industrial Average(SM), the S&P 500(R) as well as a fixed
     -- A choice of annual point-to-point or monthly averaging
     -- 100% Participation for all index options, subject to a yearly cap
     -- Annual 10% free withdrawals
     -- The freedom to change account value options annually
     "Loyalty Rewards and Indexed Rewards are great products for the current
 marketplace," said Ebmeier.  "People are looking for guaranteed minimums, but
 want to have the flexibility to participate in any upswing potential in the
 market.  The Equity Indexed Annuity Rewards Series allows them to do that."

 Rewards or any other of F&G Life's annuity or insurance products.
