What Are Fixed Annuities?
An annuity, much like an insurance policy, is a contract between a person and a financial institution. The individual will receive a lump sum or incremental payments after paying their premium for a predetermined time. A fixed annuity comes with an interest rate that is locked in (for a set period of time) when the investment is agreed upon. This provides the owner with safety and predictability.
Advantages of Fixed Annuities
Included below are some of the great benefits of fixed annuities:
- Safety – With a fixed interest rate, you know what to expect in the future.
- Tax deferral – Fixed annuities are tax-deferred investments, which means this money will not be taxed until the day you withdraw your investment.
- Shelter from creditors – In most situations, creditors are barred from annuity investments. Annuities are absolutely safe from probate proceedings.
