What are some other annuity tips I should know about?

  • Participate in any retirement savings plan available through your employer. Then determine how much additional savings you can put aside for retirement.
  • Talk to a licensed agent about what type of annuity may be right for your retirement portfolio.
  • If you are purchasing a fixed annuity, find out the current interest rate being credited under the annuity, how often it changes, and the minimum interest rate guaranteed.
  • Make sure you fully understand the annuity contract you are considering.
  • Learn about the variety of annuity payout options. If you and your spouse need to supplement your Social Security and pension benefits with a steady stream of income, annuities provide a variety of options to consider.
  • Make sure the company issuing the annuity is licensed in your state.
  • Look for a company that is reputable, consumer-oriented, and financially strong. A number of insurance rating services rate the financial strength of companies, and such information can be obtained from your agent or from public or business libraries. Rating agencies include A. M. Best Company, Standard & Poor's Insurance Rating Services, Duff & Phelps Inc., and Moody's Investor Services Inc.
  • If you have a complaint about your agent or the company issuing the annuity, contact the customer service division of the insurance company. If you are still dissatisfied, contact your state insurance department.
