SILAC Secure Savings Elite 5 is a multi-year guaranteed annuity offering clients a guaranteed interest rate for 5 years with principal protection.
In order to get the highest interest, rate your annuity will have no annual free withdrawals.

- Surrender any amount of the contract free of charge.
- Renew the contract for another guarantee period of the same duration, if available.
