Transamerica Takes Over Servicing Vanguard Annuities
Vanguard Annuity has fully separated from Vanguard. If you own a Vanguard Annuity you will no longer access your annuity using the Vanguard Annuity Login, nor will you call Vanguard Annuity Customer Service.
Moving forward, you will access and manage your Vanguard Annuity via the Transamerica Annuity Login. You can jump directly to Transamerica customer service and Vanguard and Transamerica Annuity Login here.
In a June 19, 2019 Press Release Vanguard announced plans to transition the client service and account administration for the Vanguard Variable Annuity to Transamerica within the next 12 to 18 months.
Transamerica Discontinues Sales of VA's w/ Riders
In a December 10, 2020 presentation, Transamerica announced they were stopping sales of fixed annuities and variable annuities with income riders, with intentions of exiting those markets entirely.
“These closed businesses will be managed by a dedicated financial assets team to optimize financial outcomes through active operational risk and capital management,” Friese said. “
While we will continue our successful management of the long-term care book, the team that will manage our financial assets will look for possible solutions to offload the risk of the annuity book.
We will only do so once we have completed the review regarding our hedging of this book.”
Aegon has different plans for managing the long-term care and VA legacy blocks, CEO Lard Friese said during the presentation.
