Retirement Annuities: Understanding the Benefits
As you plan for retirement, you may be looking for alternative ways to protect and grow your wealth. So, a retirement annuity may be an option to consider. An annuity is a type of insurance product that offers guaranteed* income.
Benefits of Fixed Indexed Annuities (FIAs)
FIAs can be used as a part of your retirement strategy in order to provide a number of benefits. Here's a breakdown of the main advantages of FIAs:
FIAs grow earnings tax-deferred. Interest is not taxable until you withdraw money. This enables compound interest growth.
Retirement annuities are designed to provide a steady stream of income. As a result, you don’t have to worry about running out of money late into retirement.
A fixed indexed annuity may earn interest based on the performance of an external index (for example, the S&P 500) without being directly linked to the stock market.
FIA Interest Rates
The issuing insurance company typically determines the FIA’s interest rate. Additionally, it’s the claims-paying ability of the company that backs the guarantees of the annuity. Our company, however, works with highly reputable and reliable insurance providers. An annuity policy guarantees* lifetime retirement income.
