During this phase, the customer pays either a lump sum or makes periodic payments to the insurance company. These payments accumulate at interest over a period of time, similar to a savings account. However, unlike most other savings vehicles, interest is earned on a federally income tax-deferred basis. This tax advantage is one reason annuities have become important retirement planning tools (Although income tax-deferred, taxes will become due when funds are withdrawn).
Income payments can be made monthly, quarterly, semi-annually, or annually. The amount of these income payments is based upon the accumulation value when payments begin, the age and gender of the annuitant,* and the income option selected. If the annuitant selects one of the life income payout options, guaranteed payments will continue for the rest of his or her life.
