Retirement is more complicated than it ever has been. Traditional pension plans are disappearing or are already gone. The cost of healthcare has skyrocketed. Life expectancy has increased, and along with it, the need for more sophisticated retirement strategies. When you take all these factors into account it is obvious that more money is going to be needed for retirement and you now have a greater responsibility to save.
Annuities are can be an excellent retirement strategy, but what exactly are they? A fixed index annuity is simply a contract between you and an insurance company that may help you reach your financial goals for retirement. You pay your premiums like other insurance products, but in exchange the insurance company provides you with income. This can start immediately or sometime in the future.
Fixed Index Annuity Roles
Insurance Company: This is the company that issues the annuity. The insurance company is responsible for backing the annuity’s guarantees.
Contract Owner/Annuitant: These usually are the same person, but they can be different. The owner makes decisions about the annuity, such as who the beneficiaries are. The annuitant is the person whose life expectancy is used to calculate annuity payments.
Benefits of an FIA
Understanding the benefits of a Fixed Index Annuity (FIA) will help you make an informed decision about whether they are right for you. These products offer tax deferrals, indexed interest potential and other optional benefits to protect you. Your retirement assets and income could be in a safer place with an FIA. Let’s take a closer look at these 3 key benefits.
Tax Advantages & Deferrals
During the accumulation phase of your contract your fixed index annuity (FIA) offers a tax advantage. Any interest growth is tax-deferred. This is extremely beneficial if you purchase your FIA with after-tax dollars! This means you will only pay ordinary income taxes on your earnings, NOT on your premium payments, when you start to withdraw money.
Indexed Interest Potential
Some fixed index annuities offer you a choice of indexes rather than just one. This means you have an opportunity to accumulate interest based on changes in one of these external indexes. You have the ability to choose the ones you want and you can determine the portion of your annuities value that you assign to each index. It is important to note you are not buying shares of any stock or funds.
Available Protection Benefits
There are 3 important advantages of an FIA. One of those is the range of guarantees and optional protection benefits that are available. These benefits transfer the risk to the insurance company that has issued the FIA. This is a form of protection for your beneficiaries, your retirement income and your assets.
