An annuity can help you accumulate tax-deferred earnings as part of your overall retirement plan. Annuities offer the opportunity for lifetime payments and tax-deferred earnings, and provide a guaranteed death benefit for your beneficiaries. All guarantees are backed by the continued claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company.
You may want to consider investing in an annuity as part of your long-term financial strategy if:
● You’re in a higher tax bracket, and want to defer additional income.
●You’ve reached your deductible limit on all your retirement accounts and wish to save more for retirement.
An annuity is different from most other retirement savings vehicles — it’s actually a contract between you and an insurance company. In return for making one or more premium payments, the insurance company agrees to provide you an income stream — usually during retirement. You can elect to receive payment all at once or as a series of payments, even for the rest of your life.
When you travel abroad, one of the most important financial considerations is how to protect you and your family’s health. Without proper coverage, an illness or injury abroad can turn into a financial disaster.
Whether you are a corporate traveler, an international student studying abroad, a family on vacation or reunion, or an individual traveling abroad for work, pleasure, or education, don’t let your trip be ruined by an accident or unexpected medical emergency. Traditional sources of U.S. private health insurance will not meet your needs.
Geographical exclusions and provider limitations common to these policies will restrict or even eliminate the coverage available to you while you are outside the U.S. At the same time, you may not be eligible for participation in the government-sponsored plans in the country where you reside.
