"We believe people are looking for ways to save with opportunities to grow
their savings, and annuities can be an attractive alternative because of the
combination of guarantees and benefits unique to annuities," said Harry N.

"Index annuities, such as the annuities in the ING Secure Index family,
offer protection from market risk with minimum guarantees and the potential
for higher credited interest than may be available with traditional saving

meets their desired balance of risk and the possibility of higher credited
interest. The four available index-crediting strategies are: Fixed Rate
Strategy; Point-to-Point Participation Index Strategy; Point-to-Point Cap
Index Strategy; and Monthly Average Index Strategy.
