What is an annuity?

An annuity is a tax-deferred investment that can be used to receive guaranteed payments for the rest of your life. Taxes are deferred on the earnings in your annuity until you start taking money from it. Different types of annuities are available to you, depending on when you want to start taking the money, the amount you want to invest, and what your goals are for the future.
