A closer look at Fixed Indexed Annuities (FIAs)

A fixed indexed annuity is a type of annuity contract that can credit interest based on the performance of an index, like the S&P 500, without actually participating in the stock market.

Fixed Indexed Annuities Can Provide:

  • Tax Deferral
  • Guaranteed Accumulation Value
  • Guaranteed safety of premiums paid and interest earned
  • Potential for higher interest crediting than traditional fixed annuities
  • Death Benefit Protection – upon death, the accumulated value passes to your beneficiaries

The Power of Tax Deferral

Annuities receive a tax benefit in the form of tax deferral on earnings.

This means that the interest you are credited with today won’t be taxed until you decide to withdraw it and can help further build your retirement savings.

Already saving pre-tax?

If you are already saving through an IRA, 403(b) or 457, these plans allow you to save pre-tax and defer taxes on the interest you earn.

 National Life Group’s FIT Select Income annuity may be a good choice for your qualified retirement plan.

Remember, annuities offer the benefit of guaranteed accumulation and guaranteed safety of premiums and earnings.

Retire on Your Terms with a Guaranteed Lifetime Income Rider

Retirement is about more than what you save. It’s also important to make your income last a lifetime.

FIT Select Income with the Guaranteed Lifetime Income Rider can help you turn what you’ve saved into retirement income that you can never outlive.

When the GLIR benefit is activated, you are guaranteed a stream of income for the rest of your life!

What About Inflation?

Market risk isn’t the only factor that can impact your retirement savings.

Over time, inflation can erode your spending power as the cost of goods and services rises and your money just doesn’t go as far as before.

Increases in Lifetime Income

The PassThrough Feature provides the potential to increase your income any time-indexed interest is credited.

It’s like getting a raise in retirement to help meet the rising cost of living.

And, don’t worry – your guaranteed income will never decrease because you are protected by the 0% floor.

Are Annuities FDIC Insured?

Fixed annuities are not FDIC insured, but they have similar protections for your money. An annuity is an insurance policy guaranteed by the insurance company’s claims-paying ability. The insurance companies are members of the state insurance guarantee associations in each state where they do business. Each state insurance guarantee association protects consumers in the unlikely event that their insurance company fails and defaults on their obligations to their consumers (limits vary per state).
