These Lincoln Financial products are complex and fees and charges may erode returns. Remember that these products are essentially illiquid for long periods – up to ten years. Sales commissions are paid out up front, however. Fees and other charges may increase over the life of the policy so that actual returns may be less than advertised. The subaccounts you elect for your annuity investment also charge fees that will diminish your return.
