Variable annuities are long-term investment vehicles designed for retirement purposes. All guarantees are based on the financial strength and claims-paying ability of Great West-Life & Annuity Insurance Company, or in New York, by Great-West Life & Annuity Insurance Company of New York, not Schwab. The value of the annuity may be more or less than the premiums paid and it is possible to lose money. Variable annuities offer tax deferral on potential growth. Withdrawals prior to age 59½, however, may be subject to a 10% Federal tax penalty in addition to applicable income taxes. Variable annuities are subject to a number of fees including mortality and risk expense charges, administrative fees, premium taxes, investment management fees, and charges for additional optional features. Although there are no surrender charges on the variable annuities offered by Schwab, such charges do apply in the early years of many contracts. GWFS Equities, Inc., or one or more of its affiliates, may receive a fee from the investment option provider for providing certain recordkeeping, distribution and administrative services.
