Guaranteed Income Annuity

The Guaranteed Income Annuity can help protect your future from risk while also growing your retirement money. This innovative annuity is designed to guarantee savings that last the entirety of a client’s life, provide a bright future and financial legacy to beneficiaries, or a combination of the two for those not completely sure of their retirement goals. This income driven annuity offers three riders, each addressing a different goal, making it versatile to cater to any retirement plan.


  • Retirement Protection with Minimal Risk
  • Guaranteed Income for Life
  • Additional First Year Premiums
  • Premium Bonus of Up to 10%
  • 10 Year Contract
  • Flexible Issue Ages


The Interest rates for the Guaranteed Income Annuity is based on the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR). The LIBOR is a benchmark rate used throughout the world. LIBOR is used by many of the world’s leading banks to know how much they should charge one another for loans. Thanks to LIBOR, Sentinel is able to offer our clients potential to earn rewarding return in a rising rate environment. Typically as general interest rates increase, so does LIBOR, and vice versa.




With the Guaranteed Income Annuity, you are given three different benefit riders tochoose from, each designed to help you achieve your retirement goals. Select the rider that best suits your needs.
