Lincoln New Directions® single premium deferred annuity (contract form 94-523, or state variation) is a fixed indexed annuity issued by The Lincoln National Life Insurance Company, Fort Wayne, IN. The Lincoln National Life Insurance Company does not solicit business in the state of New York, nor is it authorized to do so. Contractual obligations are backed by the claims-paying ability of The Lincoln National Life Insurance Company.

Not for use in New York.

All features may not be available in all states.

Taxes are due upon withdrawal, and if withdrawn before age 591/2, may be subject to an additional 10% federal tax penalty. Withdrawals and surrenders may be subject to surrender charges and a Market Value Adjustment. There is no additional tax deferral benefit for contracts purchased in an IRA or other tax-qualified plan, since these are already afforded tax-deferred status. Therefore, an annuity should only be purchased in an IRA or qualified plan if the client values some of the other features of the annuity.

The exact terms of the annuity are contained in the contracts and any attached riders, which will control the issuing company’s contractual obligations. For more information about the annuity, please also read the Disclosure Statement and Facts-At-A-Glance, or contact your Lincoln representative.
