A fixed indexed annuity is intended for retirement or other long-term needs. It is intended for a person who has sufficient cash or other liquid assets for living expenses and other unexpected emergencies, such as medical expenses. A fixed indexed annuity is not a registered security or stock market investment and does not directly participate in any stock or equity investments, or index. The index used is a price index and does not reflect dividends paid on the underlying stocks.
Lincoln Impact AdvantageSM fixed indexed annuity (contract form 15-619 and state variations) is issued by The Lincoln National Life Insurance Company, Fort Wayne, Indiana, and distributed by Lincoln Financial Distributors, Inc., a broker-dealer. The Lincoln National Life Insurance Company does not solicit business in the state of New York, nor is it authorized to do so. Contractual obligations are subject to the claims-paying ability of The Lincoln National Life Insurance Company.
Contract may be referred to as "policy" or "certificate" in certain states (certificate may not be available in all states).
