In the list below, you will find information about a few types of annuities that are available through Gregory Ricks & Associates.

Immediate Annuities

With an immediate annuity, the owner will receive payout benefits soon, or up to 12 months after the contract is made. They are designed for retirees and pre-retirees who are in need of steady income checks.

Fixed Annuities

Fixed annuities include a “fixed” interest rate that guarantees the rate of interest for a specific time frame. These annuities feature low risk and high predictability.

Fixed Index Annuities

Fixed index annuities have a low guaranteed interest rate plus the possibility of additional interest based on an increase in value of the market index to which it’s linked. They also lock in gains, and can never lose those gains nor any principal, which protects owners from loss.

Variable Annuities

Variable annuities are a financial investment that are, well, variable. Variable annuities include a death benefit. This death benefit works by giving a specified amount to your beneficiary if you die before the insurer has made payments to you.
