Triple Compounding Makes Fixed Annuities an Ideal Retirement Vehicle


Albert Einstein once stated that “compound interest is the eight wonder of the world.” With a fixed annuity you receive triple compounding interest on the principal, interest on the interest, and interest on the tax deferred earnings. This triple compounding through tax deferred allows your money to grow faster than it would in a certificate of deposit or other taxable investment.

Let’s assume you are investing $100,000 for 5 years and your growth is 3.5% per year. If this account grows tax deferred in an annuity, the account would grow to $118,543. If this same $100,000 grew at 3.5% in a taxable account, the account value after 5 years would be $112,480. This assumes a tax rate of 32%.

Taxes can have a major impact on your retirement income. It is very important to do tax planning so that you control when and how much tax you will pay. IF you are interested in the benefits of tax deferred annuities, please contact our office for more information.
