What Are Fixed Index Annuities?
Annuities serve the same purpose as all other retirement options; they are designed to provide long-term financial security for you and your family. But they have some distinct properties.
First, a little about the basics of annuities. The four basic forms of annuities are fixed, immediate, variable, and fixed index annuity. All of them share certain features. Annuities work as a contract between a financial institution and an individual. The individual agrees to make premium payments, which the financial organization will return (with added interest) in a lump sum or as incremental payments. All money placed into an annuity is tax-deferred.
So how do fixed index annuities differ from other annuities? Fixed index annuities are linked to a specific financial index, such as Nasdaq. With a flexible interest rate, there is more risk with this annuity, along with the possibility for a stronger rate of return. With many investments, you can expect little more than a return of your premium and a little interest. On the other hand, fixed index annuities let you experience the benefits of a higher interest rate without leaving you exposed to major risks associated with the stock market.
