First Choice Insurance understands the value of saving for and investing in your future. If you’re like many Americans, you work diligently each day and take the right steps in preparing you with a comfortable income after you retire. That’s why it’s smart to have the right coverage options under your retirement plan because in some cases, you can actually outlive your income.
The last thing you’ll want to experience as a retiree is a loss of your financial resources. With an Annuity Policy from a First Choice Insurance agent, you can suppliment some of your previous income – and hopefully make retirement a little easier. Annuities can help provide steady income, depending on your specific circumstances. Based on your chosen plan, you may receive money either on a set schedule or in a lump sum.
First Choice Insurance can offer two types of Annuities: Deferred and Immediate Annuities.
Deferred Annuities are investments that you make either over a period of time or all at once. Since these Annuities are tax-deferred, you only have to start paying taxes upon withdrawal. Deferred Annuities are either fixed or variable, meaning your payout is either a fixed sum or an amount in accordance to the performance of the market/group of investments.
Immediate Annuities are payments that you can receive right after you make your investment. This type of Annuity is typically for those around the retirement age who want to Obtain a lifetime income. Like Deferred Annuities, you only pay taxes upon withdrawal.
It’s important to discuss your options with a representative from First Choice Insurance who is committed to helping you with your financial decisions.

An annuity is a long-term, tax-deferred investment designed for retirement that will fluctuate in value. It allows you to create a fixed or variable stream of income through a process called annuitization and also provides a variable rate of return based on the performance of the underlying investments. But, as with most things in life, an annuity does have limitations. If you decide to take your money out early, you may face fees called surrender charges. Plus, if you're not yet 59½, you may also have to pay an additional 10% tax penalty on top of ordinary income taxes. A death benefit is available with most variable annuities and naturally, if you do take an early withdrawal, your death benefit and the cash value of the annuity contract will be reduced. You should also know that an annuity contains guarantees and protections that are subject to the issuing insurance company’s ability to pay for them. But these guarantees don’t apply to any variable accounts that are subject to investment risk, including possible loss of your principal. An annuity is a contract between you and an insurance company and it’s sold by prospectus. While it may take some time, you should read these documents. They describe risk factors, fees and charges that may apply to you. Variable annuities have fees and charges that include mortality and expense, administrative fees, contract fees, and the expense of the underlying investment options.
