What Is An Annuity?

An annuity is an insurance contract that guarantees payments, along with tax-deferred interest, in exchange for premium. You may choose to receive those payments immediately or defer them to some date in the future. The defining characteristic of any annuity is the option to receive the payments as guaranteed income for the rest of your life. 

Key Benefits

  • Tax-deferred growth: An annuity earns interest that accumulates tax deferred until the gains are withdrawn.
  • Strong guarantees: An annuity guarantees payments back to the individual, beginning either immediately or at a future date.
  • Lifetime income: You have the option to receive guaranteed payments for the rest of your life.

How Can An Annuity Help You?

Annuities come in many different varieties, so let's start by identifying your financial stage in life.

Surrender-Free Access To Funds

Our annuities offer a number of ways to withdraw funds during the contract's surrender period without terminating the contract. After the surrender period ends, you may withdraw some or all of the annuity funds without incurring charges.
