Canvas introduces D2C annuities

Canvas Insurance Agency , a Phoenix-based insurance agency licensed in 33 states and owned by Puritan Life, is now allowing customers to purchase annuity products online as well as “watch their balances grow” via a customer portal. Annuities can be purchased starting at $2,500. Licensed, non-commissioned agents are available to answer questions about the annuities online or by phone. Canvas provides all customers with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

The Signature Future Fund and Flex Fund annuities from Canvas are sold directly to consumers and guarantee locked-in interest rates of up to 3.5% for people saving for retirement. The Flex Fund allows for maximum flexibility with a return of premium feature that allows consumers to receive their initial premium back at any time during the contract term. The policies are issued by Puritan Life Insurance Company .

“Savings accounts and bank CDs generally provide low rates of return and investing in the stock market can leave you vulnerable to market volatility. Our commission-free, easy-to-understand Canvas annuities provide guaranteed rates and flexible terms to help your retirement savings grow quickly and safely.” – Dierdre Woodruff, a Canvas senior vice president.
