Former Equitable Life With-Profits Annuities - special bonus 2008

In 2008, Prudential announced on behalf of Equitable Life that a Special Bonus of 3.01% had been awarded.

The Special Bonus had arisen because the amount transferred to Prudential in respect of the transferring With-Profits Annuities was greater than the minimum amount required to fund these annuities. Therefore the difference was distributed by means of a Special Bonus which was used to increase the non-guaranteed part of those annuities (known as the Total Annuity).

Please note that if we were paying you a Guaranteed Annuity, then you may not have seen an immediate change in your gross annual income; this is because the terms of your annuity stated that we must pay the greater of your Guaranteed Annuity and the Total Annuity.
