Are annuities protected? The short answer is yes. Are they used for protection? Yes, it’s not that complicated. Here’s the gist: Annuities are long-term investments that are issued by an insurance company and are designed to help protect you from outliving your income. They provide the benefits of tax-deferred growth potential and a guaranteed income stream throughout retirement.
But not everyone understands how they can fit into a secure retirement, so let’s find out what annuities do and how they work. Today, Bryan will give us the answer as to why annuities are used solely for protection. He’ll also give us a basic overview of the individual nature of annuities.
