Retirement Planning

Whether it's a short five-year horizon or a long-term 25-year plan, preparing for retirement is essential for everyone. Smart decisions regarding how much to save and which retirement savings plan to choose are crucial. These choices can determine whether you'll enjoy a comfortable lifestyle in retirement or face financial challenges.

Tax Free Retirement Annuities

What is an Annuity?

An annuity is a financial product that pays out a fixed stream of payments to an individual, typically used as an income stream for retirees. It's a contract between an individual and an insurance company where the individual makes a lump-sum payment or a series of payments. In return, the insurer agrees to make periodic payments to the individual at some future date. These payments can last for a fixed period, such as 10 or 20 years, or for the lifetime of the individual, providing a steady income stream in retirement.

Annuities come in various types, including:

  • Fixed Annuities: Provide regular, guaranteed payments.

  • Variable Annuities: Payments vary based on the performance of the investment options chosen.

  • Immediate Annuities: Begin payments shortly after the initial investment.

  • Deferred Annuities: Payments begin at a future date.

Annuities can be a valuable tool for retirement planning, offering benefits like income stability and tax-deferred growth. However, they can also come with fees and limitations, so it's important to understand the terms and conditions before purchasing.

Annuities are income for Life

Preparing for retirement presents a significant financial hurdle for many Americans. The decline of company pension plans, uncertainties surrounding Social Security, and the contribution caps on 401(k) and IRA plans can restrict your ability to amass sufficient savings. Annuities offer a solution by providing the advantage of tax-deferred growth, along with a stable, guaranteed income stream during retirement.
