Understanding Fixed Annuities
Fixed annuities can help you grow your savings, protect your lifestyle, and avoid the risk of outliving your retirement income.
What Can You Expect When You Purchase a Fixed Annuity?
Deciding to purchase a fixed annuity reflects a conservative and thoughtful approach to meeting your long-term financial goals.

Tax-qualified contracts such as IRAs, 401(k)s, etc., are tax deferred regardless of whether or not they are funded with an annuity. If you are considering funding a tax-qualified retirement plan with an annuity, you should know that an annuity does not provide any additional tax-deferred treatment of earnings beyond the treatment by the tax-qualified retirement plan itself. However, annuities do provide other features and benefits such as income options.
