What is an annuity?

In the world of retirement saving and planning, you need products to help you achieve growth with built-in security features.

An annuity is an insurance product you can use to accumulate funds for retirement and other long-term objectives. It is a contract between the purchaser and the insurance company where money is paid to the insurance company now in exchange for the value of the contract or income payments at a later time.

By including annuities in the strategy you develop to meet your financial goals, you can gain several important benefits:

Arrow

Competitive interest rates

Arrow

Tax-deferred growth

Arrow

Minimum rate guarantees

Arrow

Guaranteed death benefits

Arrow

Guaranteed lifetime income

Arrow

Possible avoidance of probate with its cost and delay

Arrow

Current tax savings

Your money can grow faster in a tax-deferred product like an annuity because interest compounds on top of the money you ordinarily would have paid in current income taxes. A tax-deferred product will always outperform a taxable one because you have three components working for you:

Arrow

Your premiums earn interest

Arrow

The earnings on your premiums earn interest

Arrow

And most importantly, the money you don't pay in current taxes earns interest
