What Is an Annuity?
An annuity is an investment type. You provide funds to an insurance company in exchange for regular payments. Depending on the annuity type, you may be able to secure income that you can’t outlive. You may also be able to purchase an annuity with regular payments made to an insurance company over time.
There are two types of annuities to choose from, depending on when you want to start receiving payments.
There are three main types of annuities from which to choose:
Variable annuities rely on the performance of mutual funds chosen by the account owner. Payments are based on how the mutual funds perform. This type of annuity carries a certain level of risk.
Indexed annuities may provide a higher return than fixed annuities but are generally less risky than variable annuities. A portion of the interest earned on the account is tied to a market index. This type of investment has a guaranteed minimum payout.
How Are Annuities Calculated?
Your income from an annuity is determined by the type of investment you choose, the insurance company’s terms, and the amount of money you deposit into the account.
Your insurance agent can help you understand how each type of annuity may provide income, so it’s crucial to get a personalized quote before choosing an annuity.
