What Are Annuities?

Another way to prepare for retirement is through annuities. This is a contract between you and an insurance company, requiring that the insurer make payments to you now or in the future. To buy an annuity, you can either make a series of payments over a specified time or pay it all up front. The payout might then come back to you in one sum or through a series of payments. 


There are three benefits of annuities for retirement planning:

  • Tax-deferred growth so that you don’t have to pay taxes on investment gains or the income from the annuity until the funds are withdrawn.
  • Death benefits for your beneficiaries in the case that you pass before you receive any payments from the annuity. 
  • Periodic payments that could be for the rest of your life and that of your family. 


There are three types of annuities: indexed, fixed and variable. Annuities are great for building  retirement funds because the periodic payments can help with living expenses since a regular stream of payments mimic the monthly earnings one is used to while working. To find out more about annuities and if they are a good retirement option, simply give us a call or send an email. We’ll gladly see if annuities are a good fit for your retirement planning portfolio and help you with other avenues as well. 

*Note: Not all benefits are available in every state, but we can provide further information on this once you contact us.
