Tax deferred annuities are retirement savings vehicles, designed specifically to address the uncertainties of retirement income planning:
- How much money will I need to live a comfortable retirement?
- Will I outlive my income?
- How can I protect my family after I am gone?
Fixed annuities are issued and guaranteed** by insurance companies. They offer competitive interest rates, with all the interest accumulating tax-deferred for the life of the annuity. In this way, your earnings remain in your annuity and compound without being taxed, so your money could earn more over time, as expenses and rates can negate some returns and provided no withdrawals are taken.
Immediate annuities are contracts, between an individual and an insurance company. With an immediate annuity, you exchange a lump-sum of money for a guaranteed income stream. The insurance company takes ownership of your money, and agrees to pay you a set amount of income, for a pre-determined amount of time.
With an Indexed Annuity, the interest earnings are tied to the performance of an equity index such as the S&P 500 or the Dow Jones Industrial Average. With an Indexed Annuity, your interest earnings may increase if the market performs well, but if the market performs poorly, your principal is not reduced by market losses.
