The Investment Preservation Rider-FP Series or IPR for short is designed to protect against decreases in the Accumulation Value of certain New York Life variable annuites due to negative investment performance for a certain period of time (10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 or 20 years). The rider is only available at the time of application in jurisdictions where approved.
The policyowner may choose to reset to increase the Guaranteed Amount under the IPR. The following section answers commonly asked questions about the reset process.
For more information on the IPR, including fees, Investment Division restrictions and other rules please refer to the Prospectus.
There are three types of reset options available:
You can request to reset the rider at any time while the IPR is in effect as long as the Owner (oldest Owner, if the policy is jointly owned) and the Annuitant (oldest Annuitant) are age 75 or younger (for the 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15 year Holding Periods. For the 20 year Holding Period the maximum age to reset the IPR is 70 or younger.

Yes. A policyowner may cancel an IPR Reset at any time prior to or within (30) days after Rider Reset Effective Date.

Yes, including, but not limited to the following:
The IPR is an optional rider made available for an additional fee. The IPR guarantees all premium payments from losses that were made in the first policy year (less any proportional withdrawals) after the completion of the holding period. The IPR does not protect the account value from dayto-day market fluctuation or against losses that could be realized prior to the completion of the holding period. That means the rider will not provide a benefit if you do not keep the policy for the entire holding period after it is elected or reset.
Variable annuities are long-term financial products designed for retirement purposes. There are fees, guidelines, limitations, restrictions and risks to consider. Withdrawals or surrenders may be subject to ordinary income taxes and, if made prior to age 59½, may be subject to a 10% IRS penalty. Variable annuities are subject to market risk including loss of principal
Please note that the IPR should not be used as the sole criteria to make a decision to purchase a variable annuity. Investors should only consider buying a variable annuity if it makes sense because of the annuity’s combination of features, including the death benefit protection.
