Jackson National Immediate Annuity Review

Why a Jackson immediate annuity?

Pensions and Social Security used to be the main funding for retirement. Today, however, people have to rely more on their personal assets to fund retirement while ensuring that their income lasts as long as they do.

An immediate annuity from Jackson is a financial vehicle that can provide a variety of appealing benefits which can be tailored to fit your particular retirement needs.

Valuable features include:

  • Dependable and predictable income options, including lifetime income
  • Protection against market swings and interest rate volatility so the income you receive is not affected
  • Protection against inflation with an optional Income Escalator

Payment options (subject to a $50 minimum payment unless direct-deposited) include monthly, quarterly, semiannually and annually. Income payments received may be based on the amount you contribute, your age, gender and/or other factors. Once established, your income is steady and taxed only as you receive payments. Because a portion of your payment is considered a return of principal, only earnings are taxed on non-qualified contracts.

Income Options:

  • Lifetime Income

    Choose to receive payments for the rest of your life with no refund or with an optional cash or installment refund. A refund option guarantees that every dollar of premium paid into your annuity will be paid to you or your beneficiary.

  • Period Certain

    Choose any period from five to 60 years to receive your payments, subject to availability and issue age. If you pass away during the period, your beneficiary(ies) will receive the payments during the remaining years of the selected period.

  • Life with Period Certain

    This income option will guarantee lifetime payments to you for as long as you live. If you pass away before the end of the period selected, your beneficiary(ies) will receive payments for the remainder of the period certain. If the joint option is elected, you can choose to have the survivor receive the same amount, two-thirds or half of the original payment.
