Income Annuity


Protect Tomorrow.

Embrace Today.


No matter how you intend to experience your retirement,

you will essentially need to fund a comfortable lifestyle

and protect your loved ones. You’ll also need income for

as long as you live. Proper planning and perseverance

are key, especially as you navigate the market’s ups and

downs and anticipate rising inflation. It’s important to

have adequate flexibility to structure your retirement

cash flow.

An immediate annuity provides the assurance of a

series of payments guaranteed to last for as long as you

choose – even for as long as you live. The information

contained in this brochure, along with the guidance of

your financial advisor, can help you learn more about

how an immediate annuity may be used as part of a

customized financial strategy to protect your financial

goals for tomorrow so that you can embrace today.

Funding Your Retirement

If you’re like many of today’s retirees, traditional sources of retirement income, such as employer-sponsored pension plans and Social Security benefits, will only fund a portion of your retirement. In fact, over reliance on Social Security as part of your financial retirement plan could compromise achieving your retirement income needs. You will likely need to bridge this gap to live the comfortable retirement you desire.


What is an Immediate Annuity?

In simple terms, an immediate annuity is a contract between you and a life insurance company and is intended to help replace income during retirement. You purchase an immediate annuity contract by making a single payment to the insurance company, after which you receive an immediate and continuing stream of annuity income payments for a duration tailored to meet your specific needs. The amount of your payment is based on how much you invest in the annuity and your calculated life expectancy. Generally, your health status is not a consideration.

There are certainly many alternatives to an immediate annuity that may offer higher rates of return – along with higher elements of risk. Unlike most equity investments, however, the value of immediate fixed annuities does not move with the ups and downs of the market. Furthermore, even the most conservative fixed interest investments do not ensure a stream of payments that will last your lifetime.


Tax Advantage

Unlike deferred annuities, immediate annuities have no accumulation period prior to distribution, so there is no opportunity for tax-deferred growth of your retirement savings. Like deferred annuities, however, your annuity income payments are part return of principal and part taxable gains. The exception is when the contract is purchased with qualified or pre-tax dollars, in which case the entire amount is subject to income tax.

The calculation that determines how much of your annuity income payments is excluded from income tax is referred to as the “exclusion ratio.” This calculation simply indicates the portion of each annuity income payment that is a return of principal and, therefore, free of income tax.


purchased at age 62

Purchase Payment $100,000.00

Montly Payment $750.00

Return of Principal $370.50 Exclusion Ratio $370.50 / $750.00 = 49.40% Consider the following hypothetical example of an exclusion ratio calculation.

In this case, 49.4% of each annuity income payment is excluded from income tax until all of the principal has been returned, which will take 22 1/2 years in this example. Your financial advisor can help you determine your exclusion ratio for any payment option you choose.

The example described above is hypothetical, not based on actual rates and used solely to illustrate how the exclusion ratio is calculated. The tax treatment of annuities is subject to change. Neither Protective Life nor its representatives offer legal or tax advice. Purchasers should consult their attorneys or tax advisors regarding their individual situations.


Designing Your Retirement Income

The primary benefit of using an immediate annuity as part of your retirement strategy is creating a reliable stream of payments. Available annuity income payment options vary by insurance company and product type. In general, your options will include the following, and the descriptions assume you are the owner and annuitant.

• Payments for a Certain Period: Payments

are made for a certain number of years. When this period has ended, all payments stop. Should you die during the specified period, your beneficiary will receive the remaining payments.

• Payments for Life with Certain Period:

Payments are made for a certain number of years or for your lifetime, whichever is longer. If you die during the specified period, the remaining payments are made to your beneficiary.

• Payments for Life with an Installment Refund:

Payments are made for as long as you live. Should you die before your entire investment has been paid out, payments will continue to your beneficiary until the full purchase amount has been paid out.

• Payments for Life with a Cash Refund:

Payments are made for as long as you live. Should you die before your entire investment has been paid out, the remaining balance is paid out in a lump sum to your beneficiary.

Most annuity issuers also offer options to base payments on two lives. This can include:

• Joint and Survivor Payments for Life with

Certain Period: Payments are made for a

certain number of years, or for the lifetimes of you and your joint annuitant, whichever is longer. If one of the annuitants dies before the certain period has ended, payments will continue to the other for the remainder of the certain period. Depending on the particular annuity contract, payments may be reduced upon the death of the first annuitant or at the end of the certain period. These payments will continue until the death of the second annuitant.

For non-qualified annuities, a portion of each annuity payment generally is considered to be a return of your investment, which is not taxed. The remaining portion of the payment consists of earnings and is taxable as ordinary income. After you have recovered your investment, all of your annuity payments will be taxable.

Access to Your Money

Most immediate annuity contracts do not offer any liquidity or “surrender value.” This means that with these contracts, you will be limited to receiving payments only as provided under the annuity income payment schedule you choose at the time of your annuity purchase.

In recent years, some insurance companies have developed new annuity products and features that do provide for liquidity in certain situations. Your financial advisor can tell you more about these products and help you select an immediate annuity contract that is appropriate for your needs.

Mitigate Inflation

Some insurance companies offer payment options that provide automatic increases in payment amounts. These increases may be a fixed

percentage (e.g., +3% each year) or may be tied to an outside index, such as the Consumer Price Index. Features like this vary greatly, so ask your financial advisor for more information about products that may provide increasing payment options to help mitigate the effects of inflation.
