Episode Show Notes:

Annuities can be confusing, but we are here to help. We’ll share some different kinds and how they might work for you.

An annuity, first and foremost, can be a guaranteed income stream. Annuities are not exciting, but they are important to understand.

Immediate annuity

An immediate annuity is a lump-sum contribution that’s converted into an ongoing, guaranteed stream of income for a specified period of time.

Tax-deferred annuity

A tax-deferred annuity plan is a retirement plan that compliments your employer’s base retirement plan. Sometimes, it is also referred to as a voluntary savings plan, a supplemental plan, a tax-sheltered annuity or 403(b) plan.

Fixed annuity

A fixed annuity guarantees a specific rate of return and provides an income stream in retirement.
