How Do Fixed Annuities Work?

As pre-retirees look for tax-deferred options for retirement assets, fixed annuities can be a lifetime income product as part of their overall retirement income plan. A fixed annuity is an insurance product and is a contract between the contract holder and insurance company.

Interest accumulates based on a fixed interest rate, which is set at the beginning of the contract. The fixed interest rate is guaranteed for a set period of time. 

American Equity of New York’s fixed annuities can help provide numerous benefits for people seeking practical retirement options. These benefits include growth potential, tax deferral and principal protection with all premiums. 

Since every retirement journey varies to fit people’s individual financial strategy, we aim to provide our customers with fixed annuities designed with simplicity, flexibility, stability and longevity to help with their unique retirement needs. We look forward to assisting you with your long-term retirement goals and financial future. 

Retirement Trends

People are living longer, staying more active and wanting to have the same quality of lifestyle in retirement that they grew accustomed to in their professional career. 

According to the Social Security Administration, approximately one out of every three 65-year-olds today will live past age 90, and about one out of seven will live past age 95. 1^Social Security Administration, “Benefits Planner: Life Expectancy”

With people having approximately 30 years in the retirement phase of their life, retirees want to enjoy their golden years, which could mean traveling across the country or moving closer to family.

To avoid harsh winters, retirees might also consider downsizing and spending those cold months in states with warmer climates. With more free time on their hands, retirees could also express an interest in starting a new hobby, business or exercise regimen.

According to the State of America’s Workforce Study, a 2018 study of over 2,000 working Americans ages 40-70, when workers envision their retirement lifestyle, more than three-fourths want to travel and more than half plan to spend time with family, pursue hobbies and be active. 2^Indexed Annuity Leadership Council, “Survey of America’s Workforce: A Study of Retirement Readiness by Industry and Occupation,” 2018

But, there’s also the issue of people making sure they have enough income to pay for their regular living costs. When it comes to these expenses, housing leads the retirement expense list, costing retirees approximately 34 percent of their average annual spending. 3^Based on responses from participants age 65 and older in a 2017 nationwide survey: "Consumer Expenditures Survey," U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 2018

Planning for retirement income sources can help pay for anticipated costs in retirement, such as housing, transportation, and health care costs, as well as unexpected costs. Creating a nest egg that has guaranteed lifetime income, financial security and a balanced portfolio can help ease those long-term retirement concerns.
