Better than a CD or High Yields Savings Account
A certificate of deposit (CD) or high yield savings account are both safe ways to grow your money. However, a CD may not offer a very high interest rate, and high yields savings accounts often have a fluctuating interest rate. Annuities tend to have higher interest rates and defers taxes while growing your investment. Similarly, you aren’t allowed to take money out of a CD without facing high withdrawal fees. Americo’s fixed annuities vary by guarantee period and allow you take out up to 5% of your account value each year without penalty. A fixed annuity allows you to safely and predictably grow your savings and build a financial future. Give yourself peace-of-mind knowing your rates are locked with Americo’s Platinum Assure fixed rate annuity products. Find our current fixed annuity interest rates here.

When You Should Purchase an Annuity
An annuity can be a great investment if you are saving for retirement and looking for plans to supplement traditional retirement plans like an IRA or 401(k). If you have savings set aside that you won’t need or don’t plan to use anytime soon, placing them into an annuity can help them grow more income for your retirement plans. Annuities can provide a guaranteed income for the rest of your life. If you should pass away before your annuity is depleted, Americo’s annuities also offer a death benefit to a beneficiary of your choice. This allows you peace-of-mind in knowing your hard-earned savings and investment will go where you choose, giving you the option to leave a legacy behind. Overall, a fixed annuity provides safety, long-term growth, and income at a risk you can be comfortable with. It’s a great option for those who are approaching retirement and still looking to create income streams.
