Fixed annuities are an investment vehicle designed to provide safety and security in very turbulent and uncertain times. There are numerous different crediting methods for fixed annuities, but the common denominator is that your principal is always fully protected.
These investment products fit into the fixed income bucket of your portfolio and frequently offer a higher income than other comparable safe investment options.
For a fixed indexed annuity, the expected but not guaranteed return, might be between 3% and 7%. An added feature of the fixed annuity is that it is a tax deferred product. This product tends to be most beneficial to seniors, as those under age 59 ½ would incur a 10% IRA penalty on any withdrawal.
