An Income Guaranteed

The Stable Income Annuity from The Standard is an immediate annuity designed precisely to insure against outliving an income. It provides regular, guaranteed income payments for life (or a chosen period). This annuity is an excellent way to maintain an income stream matched to personal financial needs.

Eligibility

A Stable Income Annuity may be established for an owner and annuitant age 90 or younger. The minimum premium amount is $15,000 and the maximum is $1,000,000. Greater amounts may be considered, but must receive home-office approval prior to application.

Tax-Qualification Options

This annuity may be established as an Individual Retirement Annuity, 403(b) Tax-Sheltered Annuity or Simplified Employee Pension to initiate or continue a qualified retirement savings account.

Lump-sum deposits and complete or partial exchanges of non-qualified funds may also be accepted into this annuity.

Tax Consequences

The payments generated from the purchase of this annuity will generally be taxable in the year in which they are received. The good news is that often people move to a lower tax bracket during this time of their lives and will likely pay less in taxes than they would have just a few years earlier. The amount of the payment that is deemed taxable will be based on the tax status of the funds under IRS guidelines.

Time To Reflect On The Purchase

From the date the annuity contract is delivered, an owner has 30 days to consider the purchase. If the transaction is terminated during those 30 days, Standard Insurance Company will return all premium, net of any withdrawals taken.

Are You Prepared?

According to a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the life expectancy of someone who retires at age 65 averages more than 18 years.

We wanted to establish a bit of extra income. There was a good recommendation about ImmediateAnnuities.com on CNN. We also liked that we could see excellent reviews about them on Google. They were very thorough from our first inquiry to when we decided to buy our annuity from Mass Mutual. They always answered our questions promptly and followed up with the insurance company, too. We have been receiving our monthly payments since last November and couldn’t be happier. What more can we say?

I contacted Immediate Annuities.com to buy one of my immediate annuities. They were prompt, very responsive, paid attention to detail, understood my objectives, and were superb when it came to staying on top of seeing the funds transfer and issue of new policy documents through to completion.
