The Value of Annuities

What annuities can offer

Guaranteed, reliable income*

 

One of the most difficult problems in retirement is determining how much income you’ll need. Annuities provide reliable income that you can use however you wish.

Tax-deferred growth

 

Taxes on annuity earnings are deferred until you begin taking money out***. That may help you minimize the amount of tax you pay.

Flexible income options

 

Everyone’s situation is different. Annuities offer income options and choice of frequency so you can select what’s right for you.

How annuity payments can be used

How you use your annuity payments is up to you. Many people use the money to:

  • Pay everyday living expenses

  • Supplement Social Security payments or other income sources

  • Fund a grandchild’s education

  • Contribute to charity

  • Purchase other insurance products

* Guarantees are subject to the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company.

** Consult with a professional tax and/or legal advisor before taking any action that may have tax or legal consequences.

*** Withdrawals of taxable amounts from an annuity are subject to ordinary income tax, and if taken before age 59 1/2 may be subject to a 10% IRS penalty.
