Insured Annuity

An Insured Annuity is an arrangement that involves the purchase of two contracts: a life annuity and a life insurance policy. The combination of these contracts creates a locked-in, fixed income investment that is typically attractive to individuals who are retired or approaching retirement. The objective is to provide a better after-tax rate of return than traditional fixed income investments, while preserving the capital through life insurance.
