Welcome to the “Insuring Your Retirement” Video Series
The Four Types of Annuities
This video, the first in the educational series “Insuring Your Retirement”, answers the question: “What is an Annuity?” and explains the four types of annuities to choose from.
Fixed Index Annuities Basics
The second video in the series reviews the basics of Fixed Index Annuities (FIAs). This type of annuity is often the best fit for Annuity Watch USA clients. FIAs carry many of the benefits of other types of annuities while avoiding many of the potential compromises carried by other annuities.
The third video in this series covers how principal protection works with FIAs. Capitalizing on market gains without risking your initial investment principal may seem too good to be true. In this video, Cathy explains how insurance companies are able to offer annuity packages that do just that!
Understanding Crediting Methods
The fourth video in this series explains the basics of crediting methods. A crediting method dictates how earnings are calculated and divvied up throughout the year. This video covers the pros and cons of different crediting strategies.
In the fifth video in this series, Steve Ringo explains the basics of accumulation. A fixed index annuity (FIA) designed for wealth accumulation rather than income might be the right fit for you. Learn how DeWitt & Dunn can leverage annuity strategies for growth and help you create a plan to reach your financial goals.
In the sixth and final video of the series, Cathy explains growth guarantees. Guaranteed income riders are an optional feature that adds value to an annuity contract. Learn more about the different types of income riders and which one could be the best fit for you.
