The money you’ve accumulated in retirement savings plans won’t be tax-deferred forever. Required minimum distribution (RMD) rules apply to your individual retirement arrangement (IRA), 401(k), or other qualified retirement plans. A qualified retirement plan is an employer-sponsored plan that meets the requirements established by the Internal Revenue Code (IRC). It is important to familiarize yourself with these requirements to learn how they apply to your situation – especially from a tax and financial perspective.

Purchasing an annuity within a retirement plan that provides tax deferral under sections of the Internal Revenue Code results in no additional tax benefit. An annuity should be used to fund a qualified plan based upon the annuity’s features other than tax deferral. All annuity features, risks, limitations, and costs should be considered prior to purchasing an annuity within a tax-qualified retirement plan.
All annuity contract and rider guarantees, or annuity payout rates, are backed by the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company. They are not backed by the broker/dealer, registered investment advisor, or field marketing organization from which this annuity is purchased, by the insurance agency from which this annuity is purchased, or any affiliates of those entities, and none makes any representations or guarantees regarding the claims-paying ability of Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America. For variable annuities, guarantees do not apply to the performance of the variable subaccounts, which will fluctuate with market conditions.
