Standard & Poor’s 21 ratings are a measure of claims-paying ability and range from AAA (Exceptionally Strong) to R (Regulatory Action).

Fitch’s 19 ratings are a measure of insurer financial strength and range from AAA (Exceptionally Strong) to C (Distressed).
While ratings can be objective indicators of an insurance company’s financial strength and can provide a relative measure to help select among insurance companies, they are not guarantees of the future financial strength and/or claims-paying ability of a company and do not apply to any underlying variable portfolios. The broker-dealer, insurance agency, and any affiliates from which an annuity is purchased make no representations regarding the quality of the analysis conducted by the rating agencies.
Index annuities are not a direct investment in the stock market. They are long-term insurance products with guarantees backed by the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company. They provide the potential for interest to be credited based in part on the performance of the specified index, without the risk of loss of premium due to market downturns or fluctuations. Index annuities may not be suitable or appropriate for all individuals. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.
Withdrawals may be subject to federal and/or state income taxes. An additional 10% federal tax may apply if you make withdrawals or surrender your annuity before age 59. Consult your tax advisor regarding your specific situation.

Tax-qualified plans such as IRAs, 401(k)s or 403(b) plans are tax deferred regardless of whether or not they are funded with an annuity. If you use X5 Advantage to fund a tax-qualified plan, you should know that an annuity does not provide any additional tax-deferred treatment of interest beyond the treatment by the tax-qualified plan itself. You should only use an index annuity in a tax qualified plan if you want to benefit from features other than tax deferral. If you intend to take Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs), please consult with a tax advisor concerning your particular circumstances. X5 Advantage may not be appropriate if you plan to make ongoing contributions.
Indices are not a permanent part of the contract and may be removed due to circumstances beyond the control of American General Life Insurance Company. Such circumstances include, but are not limited to, the discontinuation of an index, a change in the composition or calculation of an index, the inability to license the use of an index and the inability to hedge risks associated with the index. Special rules govern how assets in an index account with a discontinued index may be reallocated. These rules may differ by state.
