Max Protect Fixed AnnuityGuaranteed product rounds out CUNA Mutual Group’s diverse roster of retirement solutions

MADISON, Wis. CUNA Mutual Group, a leading insurance and financial services company, announced today the launch of a new MaxProtect™ Fixed Annuity, underwritten by CMFG life Insurance Company, a multi-year guaranteed annuity providing investors a guaranteed rate of return while helping to protect their nest egg from market volatility. MaxProtect™ joins CUNA Mutual Group’s already-robust portfolio of annuities, which had fourteen mentions in Barron’s 2020 Top 100 Annuities list.

MaxProtect™ is designed with transparency and simplicity in mind, while still allowing customers the flexibility to meet their retirement goals. Product features include:

  • Guaranteed interest rate periods of 3, 5, or 7 years
  • A market value adjustment and book value version
  • An optional return of principal guarantee
  • The option to receive payouts on a fixed installment or fixed life basis

“If the past nine months have taught us anything, it’s that few things in life are guaranteed,” said Dave Hanzlik, Vice President of Annuity and Retirement Solutions, CUNA Mutual Group. “With market ups-and-downs continuing to roil the economy, many investors in or nearing retirement fear a market downturn will cause them to lose the money they worked so hard to save. But MaxProtect™ provides a crucial defense against today’s volatility, offering guaranteed growth and protection from economic uncertainty. We’re pleased to add this product to our suite of annuities and further expand the options available to our customers to help them work towards a more secure retirement.”

Accessibility is also an important feature for MaxProtect™. With the minimum purchase amount starting at $10,000 and no fees, customers are able to clearly understand what they’re paying for and what to expect.

“One of CUNA Mutual Group’s core philosophies is helping people build a brighter financial future, and we believe the best way to do that is to provide easy-to-understand, no-gimmicks vehicles so that customers can more effectively plan and work towards their retirement goals,” added Hanzlik.

Currently available in 44 states, MaxProtect™ is underwritten by CMFG Life Insurance Company, a subsidiary of CUNA Mutual Group. To learn more about CUNA Mutual Group’s annuity products, visit
