What Are Fixed Annuities?
An annuity, similar to life insurance, is an agreement between a person and a financial institution. The individual pays a premium that will, at a predetermined time, be returned back to the individual in a lump sum or as incremental payments. A fixed annuity comes with an interest rate that is locked in (for a set period of time) when the investment is agreed upon. This provides the owner with safety and predictability.
Benefits of Fixed Annuities
Here are a few of the advantages of fixed annuities:
- A safe investment – As an investor, you’re guaranteed to get back what you have invested.
- Tax deferral – Every cent put into your annuity will be safe from taxes until the day the investment is withdrawn.
- Shelter from creditors – Annuity investments are safe from probate proceedings and cannot be touched by creditors in most situations.
