We’re here to help. Is an annuity a good product for you? The best answer is this: it depends. There are several factors involved, but the first step is knowing something about them. By knowing what you may be buying, you’re in a far better position to answer the suitability question.

Annuities are long-term investment products designed for retirement purposes. Guarantees are based on the claims-paying ability of the issuer subject to their terms and conditions. Early withdrawals may be subject to surrender penalties and, if taken prior to age 59½, may be subject to an additional 10% federal tax. Annuities are not FDIC insured. Certain terms and conditions apply, so please read insurance company materials carefully.
