Annuities are one of the best ways individuals have to set aside money on a tax-deferred basis.
A unique feature of an annuity, not found in any other investment vehicle, is that it can provide a stream of income that cannot be outlived. If the annuity benefits are to be paid over a lifetime, the monthly or annual benefit amount is guaranteed to come each and every month or year regardless of how long the individual lives. Several other payment options are also available. In the event of death, all proceeds can pass directly to a named beneficiary, without surrender charge, probate delay, estate settlement costs, or publicity.
