Introduction to Deferred Annuities

Deferred annuities are a way to build capital to provide future income for you and your heirs. Annuities are not a new financial concept. They have been around for hundreds of years as a way to make guaranteed payments to someone who cannot outlive the payments. A deferred annuity provides a convenient way to accumulate the principal to be used in an annuity.

Because they are intended for long-term growth and income, deferred annuities come with some tax advantages not found in other accumulation vehicles. If you will be looking for guaranteed future income, you ought to consider the benefits of a deferred annuity program.
