Let’s Talk the ABCs of Annuities

This week, Annuity Alliance is going back to the basics – the ABCs of annuities! What do each of the letters stand for? Why don’t you find out below!

  • A is for annuity, which keeps us far from woe
  • B is for beneficiary, where one day the money will go
  • C is for contract, the policy the owner files away
  • D is for deferral, delaying the taxes you pay
  • E is for exclusion ratio, or the income that is tax-free
  • F is for fixed, where safety of principal is key
  • G is for guarantees, that investments never provide
  • H is for the rich history which annuities have on their side
  • I is for interest accrued every year
  • J is for joint life, meaning a spouse need not fear
  • K is for knowledge, annuities are for the wise consumer
  • L is for liquidity, most annuities have it (it’s not just a rumor)
  • M is for money, annuities let you keep more on your plate
  • N is for NAIC, providing oversight from all fifty states
  • is for obligation, a promise you’ll not be caught unaware
  • P is for principal (which is protected from bears)
  • Q is for qualified, even IRAs may hold an annuity
  • R is for risk which annuity owners avoid through acuity
  • S is for safety, from stock market loss
  • T is for tangible, annuity dollars are real, not dross
  • U is for unique, an annuity’s retirement role no can dismiss
  • V is for value (an annuity brings each owner much bliss)
  • W is for withdrawal; deferred annuities offer access to cash
  • X is the line we sign – your signature is right after the dash
  • Y is for yearly, when annuity interest is credited
  • Z is for zero, the odds your annuity will ever be discredited
