What is an annuity?

Annuities are tax-deferred investments that allow you to earn a post-retirement income — which means you can earn money even after you're off the clock.

Explore annuities as an option for your future

Learn about the four types of annuities.

Single premium immediate annuity
This can be a great way to create a guaranteed "paycheck." It could provide predictable, guaranteed immediate income for life or a set period of time while limiting downside market risk

Fixed annuity
A low-risk option that guarantees a fixed interest rate over a specific time period and offers low investment minimums

Variable annuity
A higher-risk option that provides the potential for a greater opportunity for growth based on your investment's marketplace performance

Index and equity-linked annuity
Offers some protection from downside risk and has the potential for more earnings as the stock market rises

How does an annuity work?

Whether retirement is far off or it's fast approaching, here's a step-by-step look at how annuities work.

1. Choose your best option
We can help you determine what might work best based on your expected retirement date and income needs after the fact

2. Begin contributing
Unlike traditional retirement accounts such as 401(k)s and IRAs, most annuities don't have an annual contribution limit so you can contribute as much as you want

3. Start earning
Choose to receive payment in a lump-sum or over a period of time
