WHAT IS A DEFERRED ANNUITY USED FOR?

Deferred annuities are primarily used as an accumulation vehicle for retirement savings. The most used type of single premium deferred annuity is the Multi-Year Guarantee Annuity.

The MYGA has an initial term from 1-10 years. The rate on a MYGA is set at issue and will not change during the initial term. After the initial term, the full accumulation value is available for withdrawal or transfer. This gives the ability to know the exact account value at any time in the future. An advantage to the MYGA is the comfort in knowing the rate will not reduce during the initial term and after the initial term the full accumulation value is available for withdrawal or transfer. An MYGA is a guarantee for your financial future.

TAX DEFERRAL

Tax-deferral means postponing your taxes on interest earnings until a future point in time. In the meantime, you earn interest on the money you're not paying in taxes. You can accumulate more money over a shorter period of time, which ultimately will provide you with a greater income.

With an MYGA, taxes are not paid on the interest earned until a withdrawal is made, unlike a bank CD where interest is taxed annually. (Please note that money not previously taxed is taxed as income when withdrawn. Withdrawals from a Tax-Qualified Plan before age 59˝ may be subject to a 10% federal tax penalty.)

To illustrate - the increased earnings capacity of tax-deferred interest compared to fully-taxable earnings. $100,000 at 6.0% will earn $6,000 of interest in a year. A 30% tax bracket means that approximately $1,800 of those earnings will be lost in taxes, leaving only $4,200 to compound the next year. If these same earnings were tax-deferred, the full $6,000 would be available to earn even more interest. The longer you can postpone taxes, the greater your gain.


How Effective is Tax-Deferred Growth?

Interest earnings in a fixed annuity accumulate free from current taxation until you make a withdrawal.  This can have a significant impact on the growth of your savings over time.

This example assumes a hypothetical $100,000 initial allocation, a 5.5% annual rate of return, and a 28% tax rate. (The actual tax results of any distribution will depend upon an individual’s personal tax circumstances.) This illustration is hypothetical and not intended to reflect the past or future performance of any product.

SAMPLE MYGA RATES

6 Year Initial Term MYGA (Terms range for 1-10 years call 800-373-9697 for personalized assistance)

Assuming no withdrawals are made, a $100,000 premium placed into an MYGA with a guaranteed rate of 3.00% for 6 year initial term would grow to $119,405 after 6 years, based on rates as of 04/22/2016. That is over a 19.41% gain on the initial premium after the 6 years, GUARANTEED.  There is a wide variety of MYGA annuities available and FSD Financial shops the market constantly to find the highest rates with the strongest companies.

Like a bank CD, fixed annuities offer a guaranteed rate for a specified period or term. The difference is at renewal, unlike a CD, fixed annuities are guaranteed.
