The insurance company agrees to pay the insured an agreed upon benefit either in the form of regular interval payments or in lump sum. Saunders Learning Group, Newton, KS Financing Your Future
  34. 34. How An Annuity Works " In its simplest form, you pay money to an annuity issuer, and the issuer pays out the principal and earnings back to you or to a named beneficiary. " Life insurance companies first developed annuiKes to provide income to individuals during their reKrement years. Saunders Learning Group, Newton, KS Financing Your Future
  35. 35. Different Types of Annuity " Single Premium Immediate Annuity: The amount is paid in lump sum and the benefits are derived from the immediate next month onwards. " Single Premium Deferred Annuity: Again, the amount is paid in lump sum but the withdrawals can be made only aVer specified Kme limit. " Annual Premium Deferred Annuity: The premium paid to the insurance company is either in form of quarterly, or monthly or bi-­‐annual or annual installments. Withdrawals are deferred to a later date. " Variable Annuity: This is more of a combinaKon annuity scheme where you can chose either to pay a lump sum amount or in installments. You can choose the investment vehicle as well. Thus, the growth of your fund depends on vehicle chosen. Saunders Learning Group, Newton, KS Financing Your Future
  36. 36. Tax Deferral " One of the alracKve aspects of an annuity is that its earnings are tax deferred unKl you begin to receive payments back from the annuity issuer. " In this respect, an annuity is similar to a qualified reKrement plan. " Over a long period of Kme, your investment in an annuity can grow substanKally larger than if you had invested money in a comparable taxable investment. Saunders Learning Group, Newton, KS Financing Your Future
  37. 37. Structure of Annuity 1. Premiums are paid to annuity company 2. Premiums are in company’s general account 3. The General Account accumulates funds 4. Fees and expenses are deducted 5. Death benefits paid out (it applicable 6. Withdrawals occur (6,7 & 8) 9. Taxes are paid Saunders Learning Group, Newton, KS Financing Your Future Slide 37
  38. 38. Immediate Annuity If you want to start receiving payments within the first year, you'll purchase an immediate annuity. " You can elect to receive payments over both your lifeKme and the lifeKme of another person (known as a joint and survivor annuity). " Under a joint and survivor annuity, the annuity issuer promises to pay you an amount of money on a periodic basis (e.g., monthly, quarterly, or yearly). Saunders Learning Group, Newton, KS Financing Your Future
  39. 39. " If you are age 65 and elect to receive annuity distribuKons over your enKre lifeKme. " The amount you will receive with each payment will be less than if you had elected to receive annuity distribuKons over five years. Saunders Learning Group, Newton, KS Financing Your Future
  40. 40. Distribution Options The distribuKon phase is when you begin receiving distribuKons. " You have two opKons: — Under the first opKon, you can withdraw some or all of the money in the annuity in lump sums. — The second opKon (referred to as the guaranteed income or annuiKzaKon opKon) provides a guaranteed income stream for your enKre lifeKme (no maler how long you live) or for a specific period of Kme (e.g., 10 years). (Guarantees are based on the claims-­‐paying ability of the issuing insurance company.) This opKon can be elected at any Kme on your deferred annuity. Saunders Learning Group, Newton, KS Financing Your Future
  41. 41. Annuity Payments The amount you receive for each payment period will depend on: " how much money you have in the annuity " how earnings are credited to your account (whether fixed or variable) " the age at which you begin the annuiKzaKon phase. " The length of the distribuKon period will also affect how much you receive. Saunders Learning Group, Newton, KS Financing Your Future
  42. 42. Early Withdrawals and Taxes " Like a qualified reKrement plan, a 10 percent tax penalty may be imposed if you begin withdrawals from an annuity before age 59½. " Unlike a qualified reKrement plan, contribuKons to an annuity are not tax deducKble, and taxes are paid only on the earnings when distributed.
