One of the Few Guarantees In Life
Looking forward to a long and happy retirement? Consider an income source with guarantees. What is an annuity? Simply, an annuity is a contract with an insurance company that can ensure you have a guaranteed income. To help you reach a retirement you’ll enjoy, we offer variable annuities, fixed annuities, and income annuities. Watch the videos to learn more.
Annuity Types We Offer
A great retirement is knowing you can enjoy the life you imagined. Annuities can create a fixed stream of income, starting in as little as a month. Or, receive guaranteed income in the future. If you choose, this income could last for life.
Studies show that most people are happier in retirement when they have a level of steady income1. With fixed annuities, you know exactly how much you’ll earn each year. And, when you’re ready, you’ll receive a payout of set amounts, at intervals you choose. You’ve been saving for retirement. Plan on enjoying it.
When you’re retired, life is very much about income. Growth potential over time can be important, although there are always risks. Variable annuities tie in certain tax advantages, retirement income, and the possibility for growth when the market rises.

Roth IRA - For Tax-Free Growth
If your current income falls within government specified limits, and you expect to be in a higher income tax bracket at retirement, consider a Roth IRA. You will contribute to your account now with money that you‘ve already paid taxes on (after-tax contributions). Your earnings will grow federally tax-free, which should allow them to build faster. When it’s time to withdraw that money in retirement, you’ll typically be free from paying any taxes.

Keep Contributing to your Future Rollover IRA
If you’ve changed jobs or retired, and you still have savings left in a prior employer’s savings plan, consider a rollover IRA. Your assets will keep growing tax deferred and you’ll avoid taxes and penalties. More importantly, you can keep contributing to the new account, so your savings can grow.
