Is your future as financially secure
as you think?
Chances are Social Security and
your pension wont be enough to pay for the retirement
you have in mind. Even if you contribute to a 401(k) plan and
an IRA, you may come up short in cash later in life. With increasing
life expectancies, your retirement could last 30 years or longer.
Plus, the effects of inflation will erode your purchasing
power throughout your retirement years. Considering all of these
challenges, how can you reach your retirement income goals?
An annuity may help you get there.
Put the power of an annuity to work
Annuities are long-term vehicles
specifically designed to supplement retirement income. They
can supply you with retirement income that you cannot outlive.
With annuities, there are no IRS imposed annual contribution
limits and any earnings grow tax-deferred until they are withdrawn
or you begin to receive annuity income payments.
You have many options when the time
comes to start drawing income from your annuity, including payments
guaranteed for life. Annuities can also offer you liquidity
and an opportunity to keep up with or outpace inflation. Please
note that withdrawals may be subject to surrender charges and,
if taken prior to age 59 ½ , withdrawals of earnings
are subject to ordinary income tax to the extent of gain and
a 10% federal income tax penalty may also apply.
If you die before you use the money
in your variable annuity, the issuing company will pay a death
benefit to your beneficiaries.
