If you are purchasing an annuity as an investment vehicle for a retirement plan that receives preferential tax treatment under the Internal Revenue Code, you should consider that an annuity does not provide any additional tax advantages to those already available through your retirement plan. However, an annuity does offer features and benefits in addition to providing tax deferral that other investments may not offer, including death benefit protection for your beneficiaries and annuity options which guarantee income for life. You should consult with your financial professional as to whether the overall benefits and costs of an annuity are appropriate considering your circumstances.
