What Are Fixed Annuities?
Like life insurance, annuities function as an agreement between a financial organization and an individual. The owner of the annuity pays a premium that will, at a predetermined time, be returned to the individual in a lump sum or as incremental payments. A fixed annuity includes an interest rate that is “fixed” (for a set period of time) when the investment is made. Anyone looking for a low-risk option will appreciate this investment.
Benefits of Fixed Annuities
Fixed annuities have been lauded for years as a effective investment strategy that includes major benefits. Here are a few of them:
- Low-risk investment – You get a fixed interest rate and guaranteed return on your investment.
- Tax deferral – Your money will not be taxed until you withdraw your investment.
- Shelter from creditors – In most situations, creditors are barred from annuity investments. Annuities are safe from probate proceedings.
