A tax-deferred retirement investment option

Preparing for retirement is a fundamental financial objective for most Americans. A tax-deferred annuity allows you to put money away for retirement on a tax-deferred basis. This gives you the possibility of growth while putting taxes off until you’re ready to withdraw at retirement.

What is an annuity

An annuity is a contract between you and an insurance carrier. This contract requires the insurer to make payments to you, either immediately or in the future. You buy an annuity by making either a single payment or a series of payments. Similarly, your retirement benefit, or payout, may come either as one lump-sum payment or as a series of payments over time.

Types of annuities

  • Fixed Annuities – ensure steady income with a fixed rate of return for a set period of time
  • Immediate Annuities – manage risk for retirement by making a single payment that delivers a guaranteed income stream almost immediately
  • Index Annuities – yield returns based on an equity-based index while giving yourself protection against stock market declines
  • Variable Annuities – hedge against inflation with flexible investment options based on your risk tolerance
