What Are Fixed Index Annuities?
Annuities are similar to other retirement investments and share the goal of long-term financial security for you and your family. But they possess a few unique characteristics.
To get started, we'll talk a little bit about all annuities. They are available in four basic forms: immediate, fixed, variable, and fixed index annuity. They all share certain features. Annuities are a contract between an individual and a financial institution. The individual agrees to make premium payments, which the financial institution will return (with interest) as incremental payments or in a lump sum. Any investment into an annuity is tax deferred.
So what are the specifics of fixed index annuities? This type of annuity is directly connected to a specific financial index, such as the S&P 500. With a flexible interest rate, there is more risk with this annuity, along with greater potential for a stronger return. Most types of retirement investments pay back the premium and a little interest. Fixed index annuities allow you to experience the benefits of a solid interest rate without major stock market risks.
