Any Health plan purchased from United Health One now will guarantee your benefits through the balance of 2013 AND through 2014. This could mean tremendous savings for our clients.

Annuities, A Strong Retirement Tool

Annuities, A Strong Retirement Tool.

Many people, when they hear the word “annuities”, tend to want to escape to another planet. They really don’t know what an annuity is or what they can do for a good retirement plan, and that is too bad because an annuity used in a retirement plan can give the retiree so many benefits. Particularly, in an economy such as we have now. The stock market is and hopefully always will be a good choice for building retirement funds, “over a long haul”, but because of it’s volatility, timing becomes a priority consideration.

Consider what your retirement portfolio would have looked like if you retired right after the crash of the market in 2007 and 2008. Money market funds have been dismal, 401K’s not much better, and CD’s are abhorrent.

There are many advantages to diversifying into annuities. There are annuities to fit almost anyone’s needs in retirement. And, it is a misconception that an annuity ties up your funds for a long time.

First of all, an annuity is a contractual agreement between an individual and an insurance company. An individual gives an insurance company his/her investment dollars in what is called the “building phase”. For this investment, the insurance company guarantees to do a number of things. One of the most basic is, they promise to make regular payments to the contract holder at a later date, in effect, after retirement, and usually these payments last the lifetime of the annuity holder and can continue payments to a surviving spouse over a length of time or a one-time payout.

Money placed in an annuity can grow tax-free until funds are withdrawn. If money is withdrawn early or the contract is terminated by the owner, ordinary tax is paid on the “gain” of the annuity only.

When you purchase an annuity, the size of the ultimate payments you will receive depends on several factors: How much money you put into the plan, how old you are at the time of investment, and how long before you start withdrawing the funds.

There are many different types of annuities. A fixed annuity can be “immediate” or “deferred”. This one guarantees you an interest rate, and one can start drawing on it immediately, or they can let it grow (deferred) as the interest it earns is compounded and added to the value of the contract.

Another type is a “Fixed Indexed Annuity” which is most popular when one has a fairly long period of time to allow it to grow. This one allows you many choices of indexes, but how it works is, you choose an index such as the Dow, S&P500, Nasdaq, or a blended index (a percentage of four different indexes). Whenever the market goes up one earns a percentage of the increase. The greatest benefit is that when the market goes down, you don’t lose a penny as you do not actually own the stock. Annuities always guarantee your initial investment as long as you maintain it full term.

Another derivation of this type is the (Hybrid) Fixed Indexed Annuity which for a fee, guarantees you a certain percentage will be paid (Now around 6% for most companies) on your investment every year of the contract. This is in the form of a rider and has a cost to add it to an annuity, and these funds cannot be taken out in a lump sum, but will be paid out for life, even when your original investment is depleted. Also, most offer the advantage of taking out up to 10% of the accumulation value per year after the first year with no penalties, should a need arise for cash. Also, there are no fees for purchasing or maintaining an annuity. Every dollar one invests in an annuity begins earning value immediately. Also, many companies offer a bonus when you purchase an annuity which is immediately credited to your contract.

So the main advantages of an annuity are: The potential for growth and no risk of losing money, most allow you to add to a contract at it’s original rate for up to three years, Free withdrawals of up to 10% of your paid premium, flexible income options, including lifetime income.

In today’s economy, an annuity offers more potential growth and safety than just about anything else available and should be the obvious choice for anyone who wants to eliminate the risk of losing what they have spent a lifetime accumulating.
