In today’s financial market, a retirement strategy wouldn’t be complete unless part of it provided for growth while making sure that the underlying assets are not subject to market risk. What’s more, with employer pensions becoming rare, you need a way to have guaranteed income throughout your retirement.
Whether you’re planning for, nearing or already in retirement, we have fixed annuity products that can help you achieve financial security and accomplish your financial goals. Few other financial products offer a guaranteed return. And no other products available in the marketplace can assume the entire risk of providing income to you for your lifetime. Only annuities offered by insurance companies can make this unique guarantee.
Generally speaking, American General Life offers two types of annuity products:
- Deferred Annuities: used to accumulate assets while deferring taxes; can later be used to create guaranteed income.
- Immediate Income Annuities: immediately provide guaranteed income; essentially, an income annuity lets you instantly create your own pension.
