Bonus Annuity Remains for this month

As a follow-up to January’s article, I want to remind all readers that the 35% bonus on our annuities continues throughout the month of February. Recall this very lucrative bonus? Bonus remains for both qualified and non-qualified money. To receive this bonus the minimum investment is $10,000, maximum investment is $1,000,000.

Recall annuities are a powerful addition to a savings plan, especially since they offer the combined benefit of tax deferral, compounding and protected income generally not present in many other investments. The tax-deferral is made more powerful because by not paying taxes on the asset each year, a larger dollar amount will compound going forward. To be clear, all qualified accounts, including IRAs receive tax-deferral compounding. The annuity advantage over taxable products is that no IRS 1099 form is triggered until a withdrawal is made and the portfolio attains a level of protection.

Further annuities provide tax deferral even when funded by after-tax dollars. When any funds (before or after tax) are placed in an annuity, taxes on gains are not due until a withdrawal is made, often later in life and at a lower tax bracket. However, even if one’s tax bracket remains the same over time, it is still better to pay taxes later. Keep in mind, the purchase of an annuity within a retirement account such as IRA, provides no additional tax deferred benefit beyond that provided by the retirement account itself.

Annuities are available for both qualified and non-qualified plans. There are no contribution limits with after-tax (non-qualified) annuities – except those that may be imposed by the insurance company – effectively allowing for tax deferral and compounding on a larger dollar amount. Conversely, the IRS imposes annual contribution limits on traditional plans such as 401Ks, 403Bs, IRAs may hamper an investor’s ability to save. But remember the non-qualified annuity has no limit on contributions. And shares in the benefits of tax deferral, compounding, and protection.

We currently have available a special index annuity that is offering a 35% bonus.

Contact us for additional details. Remember Warren Buffett’s quote that “investing is simple, just not easy”? At times, it’s easy to overlook the simple things. While compounding and tax deferral are not new, they are key investing concepts. Now add that tremendous bonus to help maximize returns.

Recall our split annuity concept? Let’s review! No insurance company issues a “Split Annuity.”

But there is an investment plan in which a sum – rather qualified or non-qualified money is divided between an immediate and a deferred annuity. The immediate annuity of course provides an immediate monthly income and is spent down to $0 at the end of the immediate annuity period (typically 5 to 7 years). While the immediate annuity provides income, a second part of this ‘split’ is a deferred annuity that replaces the income received from the immediate annuity. Encourage you to call us or send us a email requesting additional details on this wonderful strategy. Call us at 563.332.2200 or email.

That 35% bonus will enhance split annuities objective of replacing income.
