What are fixed annuities?
An annuity, much like an insurance policy, is an agreement between an individual and a financial organization. After making premium payments, the individual will receive a lump sum or incremental payments. Fixed annuities get their name from their interest rates that are locked in at the time of purchase. This gives the owner an option that is safe and predictable.
Benefits of fixed annuities
Here are a few of the benefits of fixed annuities:
- Safety – You get a fixed interest rate and guaranteed return on your investment.
- Tax deferral – Fixed annuities are tax-deferred, which means this money won’t be taxed until you withdraw your investment.
- Shelter from creditors – Annuities are safe from probate proceedings and cannot be touched by creditors in most situations.
