At Intellicapital, we've made it our mission to help retirees and those new to investing navigate the complex world of annuity investing. An annuity is a contract between you and an insurance company that guarantees regular payments in exchange for a lump sum or a series of payments. This can be a valuable addition to your retirement savings account, providing a reliable source of income for life.
Fixed annuities offer a guaranteed interest rate, ensuring that you receive a steady stream of income no matter how the market performs. On the other hand, variable annuities offer the potential for higher returns based on the performance of the underlying investments. Annuities can also offer tax-deferred growth, allowing your money to grow without being taxed until you start withdrawing it.
Investing in an annuity can provide peace of mind, knowing you have a regular stream of income, even if you outlive your savings. But it's important to note that annuities are not a one-size-fits-all solution. You must consider the fees and surrender charges before investing.
That's why we've partnered with DPL to offer a commission-free turnkey insurance marketplace for fee-only financial planners. Our aim is to offer retirees annuity products are clear, transparent and easy to understand to help them make informed decisions. We understand that retirement planning can be overwhelming, which is why we've made it our mission to simplify the process and help you achieve your financial goals.
