Sales Week: Offer potential tax advantages with our simple Roth IRA conversion process

Sales Week header image


Available on all inforce EquiTrust deferred annuity contracts


Have you had conversations with clients about Roth IRAs and converting money over from a traditional vehicle? 


Good news — we make it easy. Partial Tax Conversion (PTC) is available on any Qualified, inforce EquiTrust deferred annuity. With PTC, your clients with an EquiTrust Traditional, SEP or SIMPLE IRA can transfer money over time into a Roth IRA contract.


Why should your client transfer money to a Roth IRA?

  • Ability to spread taxes out over a period of time rather than having to pay them all at once
  • Flexibility to choose when and how much to convert (one PTC allowed per contract year)
  • Paying taxes now on partial conversion amounts may offer tax advantages
  • Potential for tax-free growth
  • Tax-free distributions after age 59½1
  • No Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs)
  • Nontaxable income for beneficiaries2

Our mirrored contract process makes it easy

Our systematic process generates a new contract that mirrors the original contract, except for the tax qualification, with the same:

  • Effective date
  • Client roles
  • Agent
  • Account allocations
  • Credited rates
  • Riders
