What are fixed annuities?
Like an insurance policy, annuities function as an agreement between a financial organization and an individual. The owner of the annuity 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 includes an interest rate that is “fixed” (for a set period of time) when the investment is agreed upon. This option is great for anyone looking for something that is safe and low-risk.
Advantages of fixed annuities
Fixed annuities have several great benefits that make them an attractive investment option. Here are a few:
- A safe investment – Unlike many investments, ou’re certain to have your money returned to you.
- Tax deferral – Every cent invested into your annuity will be safe from taxes until your investment is withdrawn.
- Shelter from creditors – In most situations, creditors are barred from annuity investments. Annuities are absolutely safe from probate proceedings.
