risk investment options which offer better returns than are available in

Protective Indexed Annuity fills that need."

Annuity offers two indexed interest crediting strategies, annual

nursing home confinement.

downside, but given the opportunity for a higher rate of return, all
with an optional return of premium benefit."
Johnson continued, "This product is further proof that Protective is
