 Split Funded Annuity

Now you can have your cake and eat it too!


What is a Split Annuity?           Is my Annuity Guaranteed Against Losses?

A Split Annuity is a combination of two annuity products. 

A fixed period immediate annuity and a single premium tax deferred annuity are structured to    

    1    produce immediate tax-advantaged income
for a guaranteed period of time and
to restore your original principal
at the end of that time period.

 A Deferred Annuity is used to restore the original principal at the end of the guaranteed period while the Immediate Annuity provides a guaranteed monthly income for the same time period.

Advantages of a Split Annuity 
1) Dependable Income: The Immediate Annuity can supplement your income by providing you with a safe, predictable, and guaranteed cash flow. An Immediate Annuity can generate a stream of monthly income anywhere from five to twenty years.

2) Tax-Advantaged Income: A significant portion of your monthly income from the Immediate Annuity is considered a return of your original investment and therefore is not taxable.  In the example below, 81% of your monthly income payments would be Tax-Free.

3) Principal Preservation and Tax-Deferred Growth : The Deferred Annuity portion of the split-annuity concept offers tax-deferred growth and you earn an interest rate that historically has been higher than average CD rates. In addition, your original principal is restored at the end of the guaranteed period which allows you to start the process over again at prevailing interest rates.
