An annuity is a contract between you and an insurance company.

  • You agree to pay the company a one-time payment, or a series of payments.
  • In return, the company agrees to pay you income, starting immediately or at a future specified date.
  • Any interest or investment return you earn in the annuity’s first phase grows tax-deferred until you enter the second phase and start receiving payments.

*All annuities are subject to the claims paying ability of the insurer. Ordinary income taxes apply to withdrawals of earnings. Withdrawals prior to age 59 ½ are generally subject to a 10% IRS penalty tax. Consult your tax adviser to consider your personal tax circumstances.

Associated Investment Services, Inc. works with several respected insurance companies to offer a variety of annuities. We’re ready to answer your questions and help you choose the annuity that matches your goals.

Fixed Rate Annuities*

Earn a guaranteed interest rate over a specific time during the accumulation phase, and in the annuity’s second phase, receive fixed pay-outs on a regular schedule.

Variable Annuities*

Invest your annuity payments into one or more funds that match your investment goals. Your return on investment varies with the marketplace, with the potential to earn more than with a fixed rate.

Equity Indexed Annuities*

An indexed annuity earns interest on the potential upward movement of an equity index. Contact your Associated Investment Services* financial consultant for details and to discuss the risks and benefits of ownership.

Long Term Care Annuities*

Combine annuity advantages with vital long-term care insurance benefits, protecting your family from the potentially devastating financial effects of illness or disability.
