There are various types of Annuities available, such as Fixed, "Hybrid" (Fixed Index/Equity Index) and Variable Annuities, but only Fixed & "Hybrid" Annuities are considered 'Safe-Money Retirement Vehicles,' as variable annuities are subject to market volatility and have excessive fees.
Offered by insurance companies, fixed annuities pay guaranteed interest rates, usually much higher than a bank CD. Unlike a CD however, fixed annuities enjoy tax deferred annual growth. Many people in retirement choose to invest in fixed annuities rather than a bank CD as a way to avoid stock market losses.
Fixed Index Annuities
A fixed index annuity may be a good choice if you want the opportunity for accumulation, but don’t want to risk losing money in the market. Also known as an “EIA,” or “Equity-Indexed Annuity,” Fixed Index Annuities offer the upside of stock market growth (such as the S & P 500 Index), up to a “cap.” When the stock market declines, the value in the Fixed Index Annuity does not decrease.
