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.

At the end of your contract term, you have the following options.
1. Withdrawal any amount free of charges and fees.
|death benefit provision||If 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.|
|taxes||Annuities 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.
