Equitable MYGA Rate Decreasing

Jun 24, 2019

Equitable's Secure Savings and Secure Savings Elite 5-year MYGA will be going down by 10bps to 3.90%. Even with the small change, this is still a very competitive rate with a lot of built-in features. It's RMD friendly, offers a 5% free withdrawal after year 1, free accumulated interest withdrawal after 30 days, and full account value at death.

Equitable announced the current 5-year Secure Savings MYGA rate of 4% on July 16, 2018, with the expectation that they would hold the rate for a period of 90 days. As it turns out, they have been fortunate enough to hold the rates for almost 1 year. In fact, they even increased the 2-year Secure Savings MYGA rates during this time period. However, with the continued decline in bond yields over the past several weeks, they no longer have a choice and need to reduce crediting rates for the Secure Saving Series. They are not making any changes to the Teton Series for the month of July.
