To help meet the needs of today’s changing 403(b) marketplace, we’ve introduced Personal Retirement Planner, which offers you and your employees a competitive qualified group variable annuity.

  • Transparent fee structure
  • Wide range of investments in multiple asset classes
  • Easy administration and recordkeeping
  • Guaranteed minimum death benefit

This information represents Horace Mann Personal Retirement Planner™ Flexible Premium Deferred Fixed Indexed Annuity II contract form ICC17-471 and indexed account endorsement forms ICC16-A01 andICC16-A02.

HMLIC reserves the right to limit premium payments after the first contract year to a maximum of $25,000 each contract year. The maximum cumulative premium that may be placed in the contract is $1 million without our prior approval.

In order to offer these benefits, there will be additional fees included in the annuity. There are no additional tax benefits in an annuity when used in a qualified plan.
