With Mutual of America's Flexible Premium Annuity (FPA ), a variable annuity contract, you can continue to save more for your future, even after you contribute the maximum allowed each year to your company's retirement plan and your IRA.
Mutual of America's FPA can help ease your concerns about not having sufficient retirement savings, because it provides the following advantages for retirement and other long-term savings needs.
Unlimited Contributions: You can contribute any amount you want, at any time you want, without restriction.
Tax-Deferred Growth Potential: You make after-tax contributions, and any interest or investment earnings grow tax-deferred until you make a withdrawal.
Interest Accumulation Account: For more risk-averse individuals, the Interest Accumulation Account provides a guarantee of principal and credited interest to protect against market risk. This guarantee is based on Mutual of America's financial strength and claims-paying ability.
Wide Selection of Investment Funds: You can choose from a diverse array of Separate Account investment funds in both equity and fixed income.
Under the Separate Account investment funds, participants benefit from gains and bear the risk of losses when the market fluctuates.
No Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs): You are not required to take RMDs from your FPA contract.
No Withdrawal or Surrender Fees and No Sales Commissions:1 There is a contract fee (unless you elect to receive documents electronically), and investments in the Separate Account investment funds are subject to Separate Account charges (now reduced2) and underlying funds investment management fees and expenses.
