If you have a CD about to come due, you have a decision to make. Where to put those funds next. And, while retirement may look different for all of us, regardless of age, you want to make sure what you do now with your money will guarantee that it lasts in your retirement years. To make the most out of your retirement, choosing a fixed annuity is a safe choice to fund your future and your fun!
But first, let’s refresh!
The Basics – What is an annuity?
An annuity is a contract between you and an insurance company in which the company promises to make payments to you either immediately (Immediate Annuity) or in the future (Deferred Annuity). Essentially, with a fixed annuity, you are guaranteed* that you’ll have a stream of retirement income.
The perks, the advantages and all the good stuff
Perk: Fixed annuity rates are guaranteed.
As you head into retirement, factors such as stock market conditions are out of your hands and nothing you can control. Fixed annuities can take the risk out of retirement planning because the rates do not fluctuate with the market. Once you purchase a fixed annuity product, that rate locks in and you can simply calculate how much your income payments will be in the future.
Advantage: Annuities can reduce risk in your return
Because fixed annuity rates are guaranteed, the risk of maximizing your return is inherently reduced. But wait, there’s more! There are other features to take advantage of. Annuities typically don’t have management fees, unlike most 401(k)s and other investment vehicles. With a KSKJ Life fixed annuity, we offer flexible options if you need to withdraw a portion of your funds early. This eliminates the risk of harsh penalty fees in case you need access to your funds sooner than expected.
All the good stuff: Annuities have built-in flexibility
Did you know annuities come packaged in two ways? Choice one is an Immediate Annuity and choice two is a Deferred Annuity. Deferred annuities delay payments and are usually the best option for people planning for retirement, but not quite ready. Immediate annuities offer payments instantly with no delay and are typically best for retirees who are looking for additional income.
