What are Annuities?
An annuity is a contract between you and an insurance company that 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 payout may come either as one lump-sum payment or as a series of payments over time.
Why do people buy Annuities?
People typically buy annuities to help manage their income in retirement. Annuities provide three things:
Periodic payments for a specific amount of time. This may be for the rest of your life or the life of your spouse or another person.
Death benefits. If you die before you start receiving payments, the person you name as your beneficiary receives a specific payment.
Tax-deferred growth. You pay no taxes on the income and investment gains from your annuity until you withdraw the money.
Deferred annuities help your clients accumulate assets for retirement and provide them with the peace of mind of knowing that their investment will not decline in value by offering tax-deferred growth and a fixed rate of return. For a single initial investment, deferred annuities earn a fixed rate of interest over time and your client’s money grows tax-deferred until they decide to begin receiving annuity payments.
Income annuities provide your clients with a guaranteed, reliable income stream that they can’t outlive, which can help ease their financial worries in their retirement years. If your clients are nearing retirement age or are already retired, income annuities provide a supplement to their retirement income through a series of income payments throughout their lifetime or for a specific period. Your clients can use the income however they wish, including paying for basic day-to-day living expenses.
