Fixed annuities are for conservative investors who want safety, security, and guarantees.

You will preserve your principal and earn a fixed rate of return.

You might hear fixed annuities also called CD-like annuities or multiple-year guarantee annuities (MYGA's).

If you are sensitive to loss and don't want to lose a penny, a fixed annuity might be a good fit for some of your savings.

market-value adjustment (MVA)

A market value adjustment is basically an additional charge or credit for taking money out early from an annuity.

They allow companies to pay a higher rate and make longer-term investments.

MVAs only affect you if you withdraw funds early. If you own the contract to maturity, they do not apply.

options at
maturity

At the end of your contract term, you have the following options.

1. Withdrawal any amount free of charges and fees.
2. Renew the contract for the same term, if available.
3. Renew the contract for a different term, if available
4. Transfer the balance to another company via a 1035 exchange.
5. If you do nothing, the contract usually renews for the same term at the rates available at that time. Renewal letter are mailed, but we suggest you track this.

death benefit provisionIf you pass away before the end of your annuity contract, your beneficiaries will receive the accumulated policy value. This value will include all interest you have earned and be passed without any charges or fees.
taxesAnnuities typically grow tax-deferred. If you withdrawal money that has never been taxed, withdrawals are 100% taxable. Non-qualified withdrawals have been taxed already, so only interest is taxed. This is called an exclusion ratio. Interest would be taxed, but the principal would not. Please work with a qualified specialist.
