Fixed Annuities - Planning Ahead
There are limits to how much an individual can contributed to IRAs and employer-offered 401(k) retirement plans. As one of the biggest retirement risks is outliving your savings, fixed income annuities may help to avoid that pitfall, allowing you to plan for a lifestyle you’ve worked hard to achieve.
Advantages to fixed income annuities include:
- No contribution limits
- Steady income now or in the future
- Tax-deferred earnings for retirement
Fixed annuities provide several payout options – payments for a specified period, payments for life, post retirement payments. Provided you’ve been able to consistently contribute to your fixed annuity, it’s a great way to provide regular income during your retirement years.
This is where professional expertise can be incredibly valuable. A good financial advisor understands each individual’s unique situation and will really listen and help guide you through investing in fixed annuities and provide sound advice based upon your concerns.
