Fixed and variable annuities can provide a steady stream of income


Whether you’re already retired or years away, you can feel more confident in your planning with guaranteed income from a fixed or variable annuity. Choose from fixed annuities with a stated payout rate, or variable annuities with a payout rate based on market performance. 

Benefits of investing in annuities

  • Guaranteed income for life - the only investment product that can provide guaranteed income for life, annuities are contracts between investors and insurance companies.
  • Tax benefits - annuities offer tax-deferred growth potential, which means your money can compound and grow tax-deferred until a withdrawal or an annuitized payment is made. 
  • Hedge against market fluctuations - annuities can offer several different guarantees that provide protection during market downturns, and may, for an additional cost, include guaranteed growth, guaranteed principal protection, or a stream of income that is guaranteed for life and will never decrease.
  • Higher payouts - annuity payments include interest and a portion of your principal contribution, and may even continue after you've recouped your principal, giving you higher payouts than comparable investments that provide income. 

Already have an annuity?

We may be able to help you save money. Our Annuity Specialists can review your existing annuity from another carrier to determine whether we can save you money in fees and potentially find a lower-cost alternative with our competitive solutions. They can also review your existing policy to make sure it aligns with both your goals and long-term investing strategy.

Investors should consider any policy replacements or exchanges carefully, as charges and loss of benefits may be associated with surrendering an existing policy.
