Annuities, like every other investment, are fantastic in a few situations and horrible in others. But if you’re seeking guaranteed returns, fixed annuities are a beautiful thing. 100,000 will be safe in a fixed annuity. But like money market accounts, they’re boring as it pertains to the earnings pretty. One year I put a client who really didn’t want anything to do with the currency markets volatility, and because CDs were paying much nothing pretty, I came across him a five-year fixed annuity paying 3%. That’s making inflation barely, folks. But hey, at least it was a assured return.

Another form of annuities that provide guarantees are fixed index annuities (FIA’s and also referred to as equity indexed annuities). These annuities are similar to set annuities in they provide principal protection. How they are different is how you make money distinctively. FIA’s use a combination of tracking various market indexes and interest caps to calculate your overall return. They can get really perplexing and trying to understand this is excatly why I don’t like them.
What I really do like about them is the “pension like” advantage that pays and income stream for the others of you as well as your spouse’s life. This contractual guarantee that the insurance provider offers can reduce the stress that is included with buying the currency markets. Annuities are also helpful when you can’t get life insurance or you want some long-term care benefits but don’t have the money to pay for it out of pocket. Understand that annuities have disadvantages and advantages.
Think through your options before signing up! If you speak to an insurance agent about trading, there’s a 99.9% chance they’ll ask you if you’d like to buy some sort of cash-value life insurance. This could be a whole life policy, universal life policy, or even an indexed universal life plan.
