Understanding Annuities

Annuities are contracts with insurance companies to protect your assets and/or provide a guaranteed source of income. There are four types:

  • Fixed- The annuity's value accumulates at a constant rate.
  • Indexed- The value of your annuity is linked to an index but is protected from market fluctuations.
  • Immediate- You purchase the annuity for a one-time price and begin receiving payments immediately.
  • Variable- You invest the annuity in stocks, subject to the normal risks of the market.

With the exception of immediate ones, annuities develop in two phases: accumulation and distribution. During accumulation, you put money in the annuity, either through a single deposit or through gradual payments, and allow it to appreciate over time. During distribution, you begin withdrawing this money, either through regular withdrawals or on an as-needed basis to supplement your other sources of income.

Annuity Advantages

Like 401(k)s, 403(b)s, and other retirement savings plans, annuities are tax-deferred, meaning you don't have to pay taxes on the growth until you withdraw it. Unlike those plans, there is no limit to the amount of money you can contribute per year. This makes annuities ideal for those with savings or retirement accounts and a desire to grow or receive income off there assets while being protected.

Annuities offer a wide range of options to savers of all ages. Pre-retirees can use them to protect and expand their assets, while retirees can use them to enhance their assets and set aside money for their loved ones or produce more income. Whatever your age or financial status, annuities are worth considering.
