Variable annuities are long term, tax-deferred investment vehicles designed for retirement purposes and contain both an investment and insurance component. They have fees and charges, including mortality and expense risk charges, administrative fees, and contract fees. Withdrawals made prior to age 59 ½ are subject to 10% IRS penalty tax and surrender charges may apply.
Bonds are subject to market and interest rate risk if sold prior to maturity. Bond values will decline as interest rates rise and bonds are subject to availability and change in price.
Certificates of Deposit (CDs) are FDIC insured and offer a fixed rate of return if held to maturity.
