What Is an Annuity?
An annuity is a savings contract between you, the annuitant, and an insurance company, the annuity issuer. There are four kinds of annuities and Social Security: fixed, immediate (SPIA), indexed, and variable. If you have a fixed annuity, your interest rate is guaranteed. An indexed annuity allows you to link your assets to certain indexes and allows you to link certain riders to your annuity to accomplish specific goals in mind -- some people call this a "Hybrid Annuity." An immediate annuity (SPIA) allows you to turn in lump sums of money for income streams. With a variable annuity, your earnings are linked with the fluctuating performance of your investments and may be worth more or less than your principal when redeemed.
Unlike other investment plans, there is no limit to how much you can put into an annuity. Your funds will grow with a tax-deferred status, and you pay your regular income tax rate on any taxable money upon withdrawal.
What Annuity Options Are Available?
An immediate annuity can begin paying you right away. You can choose whether you want your income guaranteed for a specific time period or if you want lifelong payments. The amount of your payments is calculated based on your principal and your life expectancy.
A deferred annuity is broken up into two phases:
- Accumulation: This is when you add money to your annuity, whether you pay in a lump sum or you make a series of payments. You can continue to let your account grow tax-deferred.
- Distribution: This is when you begin withdrawing money from your annuity, whether you take out systematic withdrawals or you annuitize to supplement your finances with a regular stream of income for life.
Why Buy an Annuity?
An Annuity is a good option for individuals who are looking for safety and peace of mind while still having the opportunity to grow or turn their assets into income for life to cover the gap in their cost of living. Your earnings can then be used for supplemental income during retirement, guaranteed financial independence as you age, or a monetary legacy to leave behind for your loved ones.
