An annuity is a simple retirement option you can use to create income. In exchange for a sum of money, you receive income payments made up of interest and principal that are determined by your age (and in certain cases, your spouse's age), current interest rates, the length of time the payments are guaranteed for and the amount of money used to purchase the annuity.
Annuities can offer the highest guaranteed income amount possible from an investment at the time of planning. They are an exceptional choice for an investor who wants to help cover essential expenses in retirement, prefers a guaranteed income stream, is concerned about outliving his or her savings, wants to reduce tax on investment income or subsidize early retirement income. It is also useful where an investor wants to fund a child's ongoing educational costs.
