An annuity is a long- term retirement income product that can help protect you from outliving your money.

It is designed to protect and grow your money, and then provide a stream of income during your retirement.

Other than pensions, annuities are the only products that provide GUARANTEED lifetime income.

The most efficient tool for converting a specific sum of money into a monthly income that lasts as long as you live!

A fixed annuity has two phases- an accumulation period and an income period. During the accumulation phase, the money you contribute to your fixed annuity will earn interest at a fixed interest rate.

During the income period, the money you’ve accumulated in your fixed annuity can be turned into a stream of income payments or a lump- sum payment. You also have the option to renew your contract Guarantee Period with a declared new money rate.
