What is a Fixed Indexed Annuity anyway?
Fixed Indexed Annuities
Fixed Indexed Annuities are contracts between you and an insurance company. Regardless of market swings, FIAs guarantee a minimum rate of return for a fixed number of years. Interest is earned based in part on changes in a market index, which measures how the market, or part of the market, performs. Other benefits of FIAs include no risk to your principal, tax-deferred growth, and the ability to create an income stream you can’t outlive. State insurance commissioners serve as the regulatory authority and states are required to have life insurance licenses to sell the product. For FIAs, the insurance company assumes the risk.
Fixed annuities are contracts in which the insurance company makes fixed dollar payments to the annuitant for the term specified in the contract, usually through the lifetime of the annuitant. Like FIAs, the insurance company guarantees both earnings and principal. Other benefits include tax-deferred growth. State insurance commissioners serve as the regulatory authority and states are required to have life insurance licenses to sell the product. Once again, the insurance company assumes the risk.
