What is an annuity?

An annuity is a type of financial product that is usually sold by insurance companies.

Annuities consist of a divided lump sum amount into small annual payments. This setup is typical for retirement plans. These payments are cashed out steadily over the years in the future. Often these are paid over five, ten, and twenty years.

What are the drawbacks of annuities?

As with any investment, it is essential to remember that the source of your purchase needs to be certified, legal, and trustworthy. If you do not, you run the risk of buying an annuity from a shady insurer that may never uphold the agreement.

Warning: Yes, there are unlicensed and unregulated companies out there, and while it will sound like a great deal, it will be high risk.

Annuities purchased from the wrong insurance company do have their drawbacks, so it's important to watch out for:

Expensive rates (discount rate) and unexplained administrative fees.

IRS fines should you cash in your annuity before the stipulated time.

Insolvency. Some insurance companies never pay their clients the designated monthly premium. You don't want that to happen to you.

Late payments; insurance companies may take too long to pay the required amounts. This will cause undue stress on you and your family.

It's essential to secure the services of a trusted third-party (such as us) to help you avoid the problems listed above to sell your annuity payments.

What is the difference between immediate and deferred annuities?

Immediate annuities pay you back almost immediately (which is where their name stems from), as their names suggest. Once the processing of your money completes in the annuity, you start receiving your return payment. This type of annuity works very well for people who are retiring. Of course, these payments depends on the financial institution that is providing it and the terms of the annuity.

A deferred annuity is the one that accumulates its returns over a more extended period. However, the catch of this type of annuity is that you can't take the money out before the time period ends, no matter how urgent your financial needs are.

What is the difference between fixed, indexed, and variable annuities?

Depending on whether you want to have a recurring stream of payments or a payment that can change, there are three different types of annuities. Let's explore them below:

Variable Annuity. A variable annuity provides you with alternatives to invest. This means you may decide where to invest the annuity. This can translate into a growth or a decrease in income, depending on the investment you choose.

Fixed Annuity. A fixed annuity guarantees a periodic income paid to you depending on the contract, the institution holding the annuity, the money you put into it, and the amount of time you are contracted.

Indexed Annuity An indexed annuity (also called equity indexed annuities) is technically a mix between a fixed and variable annuity. You obtain an annuity that works like a variable. The annuity can grow and decrease with the investments it holds, but it does guarantee a minimum return of money if things get tough.

Keep in mind that you can sell your annuity regardless of the type of annuity you have. Call to get help and guide you through the selling process. Should you decide to sell all or part of your annuity or structured settlement, the transaction can be handled from start to finish.
