Choosing the Right Fixed Annuities
Fixed annuities provides a guarantee between you and the insurance company based on both the rate of return (interest rate) and the payout to you as the investor. The predictability of a fixed annuity make it a very popular option for investors who want a guaranteed income stream to supplement their other investment and retirement income. Each contract will explain how and when interest rates may adjust and the terms of the payouts.

Fixed annuities are long-term investments designed for retirement purposes. Guaranteed interest rates are based on the claims-paying ability of the underlying insurance company. Surrender charges may apply. Withdrawals are subject to ordinary income taxes, and if made prior to age 59 1/2 may be subject to a 10% penalty. Additional benefits and riders may increase the cost of the premium or lower the interest rate. Tax deferral is of no additional benefit if annuity is held in a retirement account such as an IRA or 457 (b) plan.
