Fixed Deferred Annuities in a Nutshell

A fixed deferred annuity is a contract between you and a life insurance company. It’s funded either through a one-time lump sum payment or through multiple payments over time.

An annuity offers a guaranteed rate of return over a fixed period of time and enables you to defer taxes on your earnings until you make a withdrawal.
Fixed deferred annuities offer the three things many people look for nowadays when investing:

  • Guaranteed income for life
    After the first contract year—and anytime before your 101st birthday—you can convert your annuity’s accumulated value into a regular income stream that you’ll never outlive.
  • Protection against market risk
    Your annuity never earns less than the guaranteed minimum interest rate stated on your contract. And your earnings are guaranteed.
  • Convenient access
    Fixed deferred annuities are designed for longer-term accumulation. But if you need to access some of your money, you can.
