Believe it or not, you can get a “paycheck” without working.

Designed to help prepare you for retirement, annuities are an effective way to grow and protect your retirement assets. They can also transform your savings into a steady stream of income whenever you’re ready.

Income Annuity** 

This type of annuity provides guaranteed income payments for life. You’re in control and can determine how much income you want and how long you’ll receive it. All so you can have what you need, when you need it.

Fixed Annuity**

With this type of annuity, your money will grow at a guaranteed interest rate for a set period of time. No matter how the market fluctuates, your money will consistently grow. Then when you’re ready to access these funds, you can reliably receive the “paychecks” you planned on. 

Variable Annuity**†

With variable annuities, your account’s performance is dependent on how your investment choices fare in the market. This kind of annuity may offer more growth potential than a fixed annuity, and may be a good option in the lead-up up to retirement, when the risk-reward balance makes sense. When you’re ready to receive payments, you’ll simply convert your account value to income.
