Annuities

What Is An Annuity?

An annuity is a long-term investment between you, the annuitant, and an insurance company, the annuity issuer. Under this contract, you may roll-over qualified funds or pay after-tax funds to the annuity issuer, who then invests your principal to meet your financial objectives and pays you or your beneficiary back with earnings.

If you have a fixed annuity, your interest rate is guaranteed. Unlike other investment plans, there is no limit to how much you can invest in an annuity. Your funds will steadily grow with a tax-deferred status, and you pay your regular tax income rate on only your earnings upon withdrawal.

What annuity options are available?

An immediate annuity can begin paying you right away. You can choose whether you want your income guaranteed for a specific time period or if you want lifelong payments. The amount of your payments is calculated based on your principal and your life expectancy.

A deferred annuity is broken up into two phases:

  • Accumulation: This is when you add money to your annuity, whether you pay in a lump sum or you make a series of payments. You can continue to let your account grow tax-deferred for an indefinite amount of time.
  • Distribution: This is when you begin withdrawing money from your annuity whether you take out systematic withdrawals or you annuitize to supplement your finances with a regular stream of income for life.

Why Buy a Fixed Annuity?

An annuity is a good investment option for individuals who want protection from the risk of the open market but still looking for higher potential return. Your earnings can then be used for supplemental income during retirement, guaranteed financial independence as you age, or a monetary legacy to leave behind for your loved ones. An annuity can help you continue living comfortably well into old age.

“By the way, as I said, my husband went in for a knee replacement, had a stroke and was there 3 weeks and then needed a nursing home/rehab place.

The one recommended to us was fully covered by Mutual of Omaha. Had we chosen the Medicare Advantage plan, he wouldn’t have been able to go there. They won’t pay. the hospital person helping me was relieved to here we had straight Medicare and a supplemental.”

Jim, Just a quick note to say Thank You for your help in selecting a Medicare supplement plan.

Testimonials

I would like to thank you for helping me with my Medicare Supplement Plan. It can be a very confusing time trying to sort out everything. Mr. Fred Lewis is truly a great asset to your company. He explained everything in a very logical and concise manner. He had a lot of patience for all of the questions that I asked. He always was able to answer them and make me feel comfortable about everything. When Fred told me that somebody else would contact me about the drug plan, that is exactly what happened. Everything that Fred told me would be sent to me, was. I really appreciated the time and knowledge that was put into helping me. I now feel much better knowing that everything has been taken care of and handled.
I would recommend your company to anyone who is interested in getting a Medicare Supplement Plan. Thank you again for all of your help and for Mr. Fred Lewis.
