Guaranteed lifetime income in any market.
With the Schwab Retirement Income Variable Annuity, you can secure lifetime income through annuitization or by purchasing the optional Guaranteed Lifetime Withdrawal Benefit (GLWB). The GLWB option allows you to lock in an annual retirement income equal to 5% of your contract's highest anniversary value for the single life rider (4.5% for the joint life rider) on any contract anniversary date after you purchased the rider. You can add the GLWB option on or after the date you purchase your annuity until age 85.
Your income can grow in up markets. | Your income is protected in down markets.
With the GLWB, you can stay invested in the market to help counteract the effects of long-term inflation—without jeopardizing future income.
A market downturn right before your retirement or in the first years of retirement could rob you of savings you’re counting on for income. The Schwab Retirement Income Variable Annuity™ gives you the option to protect your payment base.

1. The Guaranteed Lifetime Withdrawal Benefit (GLWB) is an optional rider available for an additional cost charged against the Protected Payment Base. The Protected Payment Base is not a contract value and is not available for withdrawal like a cash value. Your actual contract value and death benefit will deplete with each withdrawal, though you may continue to withdraw your Protected Payment Amount for life even after the account value has been depleted to zero. Withdrawals in excess of the specified annual payout amount (5% for single life rider and 4.5% for joint life rider), may significantly and permanently reduce the Protected Payment Base. Please see the prospectus for additional details.

4. When you invest in a variable annuity, you do not invest directly in the portfolios. You invest in sub-accounts that, in turn, invest in the portfolios you’ve selected. Your account is then credited with variable accumulation units in that sub-account. The fees and charges associated with the sub-accounts and the terms and conditions of your investments are detailed in the prospectus and are in addition to the fees for the variable annuity and optional GLWB rider or other riders.
5. Exposure to the asset classes is achieved through investments in ETFs and mutual funds, not through direct investment in the assets. ETFs are subject to risks similar to those of stocks. Some specialized ETFs can be subject to additional market risks. Investment returns will fluctuate and are subject to market volatility such that an investor’s shares, when redeemed or sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Unlike mutual funds, shares of ETFs are not individually redeemable directly with the ETF.
6. The investment adviser and its affiliates have agreed to limit the total annual portfolio operating expenses (excluding interest, taxes, and certain non-routine expenses) of each portfolio for as long as the investment adviser serves as adviser to the portfolio. Please see the Schwab VIT Portfolios prospectus for details on fees and expenses.
Variable annuities are sold by prospectus only. Before purchasing an annuity, you should carefully read the prospectus and consider the annuity’s investment objectives and all the risks, charges, and expenses associated with the annuity and its investment options. You can request a prospectus containing this and other information by calling 888-311-4889 or you can view one online.

Variable annuities are long-term investment vehicles designed for retirement purposes. Withdrawals of taxable amounts will be subject to ordinary income tax and, if taken prior to age 59½, may be subject to a 10% tax penalty. Withdrawals will reduce the death benefit amount in direct proportion to the percentage by which the contract value was reduced. This can increase or decrease the amount deducted from the death benefit.
International investments are subject to additional risks, such as currency fluctuations, political instability, and the potential for illiquid markets. Investing in emerging markets can accentuate these risks.
Investments in commodity-related products may be subject to significantly greater volatility than investments in traditional securities and involve substantial risks, including significant loss of principal value.
