Product description

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.

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.
