    Variable annuities

    A variable annuity is a financial investment that is, well, variable. This kind of annuity can either be paid for with a large payment or a series of smaller payments. This may sound just like other annuities, and there are many comparisons between the two (tax deferment, the choice of lump sums or regular payments, etc.), but there are huge differences between the two kinds of investments.

    The variable annuity death benefit is one difference. A specified amount will be given to your beneficiary if you pass away before you have received payments from your financial institution.

    There are more variables. Variable annuities mix features of mutual funds, life insurance, and tax-deferred retirement savings plans. Contact Retirement Income Strategies, your trusted financial professionals in Madison, to learn more about available investment opportunities.
