Can you cite even ONE case since WW II where a US annuity holder has lost money?

Life & Annuity Blocks
All active life and annuity policies have been assumed up to guaranty association's limits

On October 13, 2004, the Commonwealth Court approved the Liquidator’s petition for a final distribution to affected policyowners and the discharge of the estate.

Through a series of distributions since 1996 the Liquidator made a 89.3% total distribution to policyowners via ACACIA.


So, annuity holders in excess of annuities valued at $100k lost 11.7% of their value.
