Immediate annuities enable you to convert the money you have into a steady stream of income for the future to help with retirement.
Immediate annuities from Protective offer ways for you to convert a lump sum of money into an income stream that meets your needs for the future. Sometimes called an income annuity, this tool essentially takes your purchase payment and converts it to a stream of payments made back to you for a specific length of time -- or for your entire life.
Immediate annuities offer a simpler form of this retirement tool, and typically don’t have many of the expenses associated with other types of investments that can impact earnings and be difficult to understand.
Because you earn a set interest rate, you know how your money will perform over time. Your income payments are guaranteed, and you are only taxed on the earnings as you receive them.*
Immediate annuities - or income annuities - allow you to set up a steady stream of income for a set period of time. You can also set up these payouts for the rest of your life - so you won’t have to worry about outliving this income.
*Annuity payments from a tax-qualified plan will be fully taxable as ordinary income. Withdrawals made prior to age 59 1/2 may be subject to an additional 10% IRS tax penalty.

Most annuities have two phases. The first phase is when you fund, or purchase them, and you accumulate money within the annuity. The second phase is when they begin providing income. Because you purchase an immediate annuity in one initial deposit, you don’t have an accumulation phase. So immediate annuities are typically chosen to provide income rather than grow money for retirement. You can begin receiving income payments immediately, or delay them for up to 12 months. An immediate annuity can also provide a death benefit to your beneficiary.
The payments you receive from an immediate annuity can vary depending on your age, life expectancy, and other factors, such as how long you want the payments to continue.
When you purchase an annuity for retirement, you begin a long-term relationship with a life insurance company. You want to be sure that company has the experience, character and strength to serve you now and in the future. You want to be confident that company will back its promises for the long term.
