Annuities Provided By Our Agency

What does retirement mean to you? You might look forward to spending time with your grandchildren, indulging in a favorite hobby, playing endless rounds of golf, or exploring the world. Whatever your goals, they likely depend on a reliable source of income.

That's where annuities come into play. These insurance products are designed to help you accumulate tax-deferred savings as you prepare for retirement and provide a steady income stream once you retire.

What are Annuities?

Annuities are long-term contracts insurance companies offer to help you grow your retirement income. You invest your money in these contracts, and in return, you receive income through regular payments.

An annuity is a long-term investment that guards against the possibility of outliving your income. Through a process known as annuitization, your purchase payments—what you contribute—are transformed into recurring payments that may last a lifetime.

Annuities are risky investments, and your money could lose value, but the guarantees and protections depend on the insurance company's capacity to pay claims. These assurances do not cover variable accounts because they are susceptible to investment risk, which includes the possibility of principal loss.

Types of Annuities

There are several types of annuities to choose from, depending on your specific goals, Whether it's for generating income, planning for your legacy, or providing protection for your spouse. Your financial professional can help tailor a plan for you. Some common types of annuities include:

Variable Annuities: Potential for higher earnings, but with more risk.

Registered Index-Linked Annuities: Limited downside risk with potential for increased earnings based on index growth.

Fixed Annuities: Investment grows at a guaranteed rate of return.

Immediate Annuities: Convert a lump sum into a stream of income.

Fixed Indexed Annuities: Potential for increased earnings based on index growth with downside protection.

Risks Involved in Annuities

Like any investment, annuities come with risks. For instance, if you pass away before the payout period, your beneficiaries may miss out on annuity payments. Additionally, accessing or withdrawing money from your annuity account can be challenging after you've invested it. It's crucial to research the insurance company underwriting the annuity. Key risks include:

Missing the Income Benefit
Annuities are designed to provide a lifelong income stream. You may miss out on this long-term benefit if you pass away suddenly. Some annuities allow you to name a beneficiary, but this may cost extra.

Tying Up Money
Once you've invested in an annuity, accessing or cashing out those funds can be difficult if you suddenly need them. For instance, some immediate annuities restrict access to your principal after investment, even though payments begin immediately.

Insolvent Insurance Companies
Since annuities are long-term investments, ensuring the issuing company is financially stable is important. Research the credibility, history, and credit standing of potential annuity providers.

Already have Annuities? Switching is easy
