There are many types of annuities, but immediate annuities are one of the most popular options. These annuities are purchased with one lump-sum payment and begin paying out the agreed-upon amount right away. But, to be sure this annuity type is right for you, ask yourself these questions:

  1. Do you favor safety and guarantees* over more risky options?
  2. Are you healthy and do you think there’s a fair chance you’ll live longer than the average person?
  3. Is less than 50% of your predictable retirement expenses covered by guaranteed sources of income, like Social Security and pensions?
  4. Are you worried about spending too much early in your retirement, running out of money later, and defending yourself from poor cognitive decisions in the future?1

If you answered yes to any of the above, then immediate annuities may be the right choice for you!
