What Are Fixed Annuities?
Annuities operate as a contract between a person and a financial organization, similar to an insurance policy. After making premium payments, the individual will receive a lump sum or incremental payments. A fixed annuity includes an interest rate that is “fixed” (for a set period of time) when the investment is agreed upon. This option is ideal for anyone looking for something that is safe and low-risk.
Benefits of Fixed Annuities
Fixed annuities have been lauded for years as an effective investment strategy that includes incredible benefits. Here are a few:
- A safe investment – You get a fixed interest rate and guaranteed return on your investment.
- Tax deferral – Every cent invested into your annuity will be free from taxes until you withdraw your investment.
- Shelter from creditors – Annuity investments cannot be touched by creditors in most situations and are safe from probate proceedings.
