Retirement Isn’t The End. It’s The Beginning.

The day you stop working is a brand new stage in life. Ideally, a long and happy one.  But to live this new beginning to the fullest, you’ll need income.

In an optimal portfolio that’s part of a retirement plan, you’ll have the benefit of an array of savings and investment strategies. If you’ve been looking at retirement possibilities, you may have asked yourself: how does a variable annuity work? A variable annuity allows you to accumulate tax-deferred savings and then, during the payout period, provides you with the option to start receiving regular payments year after year for your lifetime, or for a specific time period.


  • Tax-deferred growth. Gains earned during the life of your variable annuity can continue to grow, tax-deferred. This means that you don’t pay taxes until the gains are withdrawn. Pay in and accumulate money now while you’re earning a salary. By the time you are receiving annuity payments, you could be in a lower tax bracket.

  • Protecting your beneficiaries. A variable annuity offers a number of options that can help you give your beneficiaries a form of financial protection, typically referred to as a death benefit, in the event that you die during the accumulation period, before you have begun to receive payments.
