By providing this content, The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America, The Guardian Insurance & Annuity Company, Inc. and their affiliates and subsidiaries are not undertaking to provide advice or recommendations for any specific individual or situation, or to otherwise act in a fiduciary capacity. Please contact a financial representative for guidance and information that is specific to your individual situation.

This material is for information use only. It should not be relied on as the basis to purchase a variable, fixed or immediate annuity or to implement a retirement strategy.

The information provided herein is not written or intended as investment, tax or legal advice and may not be relied on for purposes of avoiding any federal tax penalties. This information supports the promotion and marketing of annuities.

There are no additional tax benefits if you purchase an annuity to fund an IRA or qualified retirement plan. Therefore, an annuity should only be purchased in an IRA or qualified plan if you value some of the other features of the annuity and are willing to incur any additional costs associated with the annuity to receive such benefits.

Current tax law is subject to interpretation and legislative change. Tax results and the appropriateness of any product for any specific taxpayer may vary depending on the particular set offa cts and circumstances. Entities or persons distributing this information are not authorized to give tax or legal advice. Individuals are encouraged to seek specific advice from their personal tax or legal counsel.

Variable annuities are long term investment vehicles designed to help investors save for retirement and involve certain contract limitations, fees, expenses and risks, including possible loss of the principal amount invested. The investment return and principal value may fluctuate so that the investment, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than original cost. As with many investments, there are fees, expenses and risks associated with these contracts. All guarantees including the death benefit payments are dependent upon the claims paying ability of the issuing company and do not apply to the investment performance of the underlying funds in the variable annuity. Assets in the underlying funds are subject to market risks and may fluctuate in value.

Withdrawals of taxable amounts from a variable or fixed deferred annuity will be subject to ordinary income tax and possible mandatory federal income tax withholding. If withdrawals are taken prior to age 59½, a 10% IRS penalty may also apply. Withdrawals may also be subject to a contingent deferred sales charge.

Variable annuities and their underlying variable investment options are sold by prospectus only. Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. This and other information are contained in the prospectus or summary prospectus, if available, which may be obtained from your investment professional. Please read it before you invest or send money.

Fixed and variable annuities are issued by The Guardian Insurance & Annuity Company, Inc. (GIAC). All guarantees are backed exclusively by the strength and claims paying ability of GIAC. Variable annuities are issued by GIAC, a Delaware corporation, and distributed by Park Avenue Securities LLC (PAS). Both GIAC and PAS are wholly owned subsidiaries of The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America, 10 Hudson Yards, New York, NY 10001.
