Variable Annuities Variable annuities offer investors the powerful advantage of tax deferral and a guaranteed death benefit* to help supplement their retirement savings plan. According to the Social Security Administration (2015), personal investments, savings, and earnings will generate 67% of your retirement income. With Social Security only generating 33%, your quality of life in your golden years will depend on how well you save for retirement.For an additional cost, today’s variable annuities typically offer Living Benefits* that can guarantee a lifetime income stream as well as the return of your initial investment (adjusted for withdrawals). While qualified retirement plans (401(k), 403(b), etc) typically offer participants the best savings vehicle for retirement, each have annual contribution limitations. IRAs and Roth IRAs carry contribution limitations as well. However, tax-deferred variable annuities, though contributions are not tax-deductible, have virtually no contribution limits and assets grow completely tax-deferred until withdrawn. Mutual fund-type investment options, called sub-accounts, are available from some of the world’s best managers.The bottom-line: assets growing tax-deferred will grow faster than those in taxable accounts earning the same rate of return.Nelson Securities, Inc. is registered for annuity business in the majority of states across the country and offers extensive variable annuity services that take advantage of our investment advisory research.
