ABCs of annuities
What is an annuity?
You may have heard about annuities – but how do they work, and what makes them different from other financial products? Watch to learn the two phases of an annuity and what it can offer to new and soon-to-be retirees – including a level of protection from market downturns, lifetime income, a death benefit during the accumulation phase, and additional customized benefits.

Protection and income benefits may be built into the contract and provided through optional riders that are available for an additional cost.
Variable annuities are subject to investment risk, including loss of principal, and contract values fluctuate daily. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate with market conditions so that units, upon distribution, may be worth more or less than the original cost.
