California Life Insurance and Annuities Attorney: Annuities Issued by Athene Annuity and Life Company (formerly Aviva Annuity and Life Company)


Full and Partial Surrenders or Cancellations of Athene Annuity and Life Company Annuities

Athene Annuity and Life Company, formerly Aviva Annuity and Life Company,[1] issues fixed indexed annuities in California.  These contracts, like all deferred annuities, include penalties for early withdrawals, known as surrenders.  Surrenders may be full (withdrawing the entire value of the contract) or partial (withdrawing less than the total value).  California law has specific rules which all carriers, including Athene, must follow regarding disclosure of these surrender charges in policies issued to consumers 60 years of age and over.

If you or a loved one is a California resident over age 60 who has made a full or partial surrender of an annuity issued by Athene Annuity and Life Company (formerly Aviva Annuity and Life Company), or any other carrier at any time since 2013, call the California annuity lawyers today at Evans Law Firm, Inc. (415) 441-8669 for a free evaluation of all the terms of your policy and any full or partial surrender.

For your reference we provide a list of California annuity carriers below. Carriers market annuity contracts under a wide variety of tradenames.  Space does not permit a listing of all tradenames.  As an example, Athene Annuity and Life Company (formerly Aviva Annuity and Life Company) issues fixed indexed annuities under the tradenames Athene Benefit 10©, Athene Agility©, Athene Ascent Pro Bonus©, Athene MaxRate©, Athene Target Horizon©, and Athene Performance Elite©.  If you are over 60 and live in California, our annuities lawyers can review your policy for free.  Call us today at 415-441-8669.
