Annuities
Annuities can serve many purposes, and can oftentimes be a simple way to guarantee income for you in your time of need.


You may be interested in annuities but you just don't know enough about them. We understand. That's why STAR is committed to guiding you through how annuities work and their advantages. An annuity is an interest-earning contract issued by an insurance company during which the insurance company makes a series of income payments at regular intervals in return for the premium paid. The annuity resembles a savings certificate because in both cases the money that is deposited earns a high rate of return. An annuity can be used to provide tax-favored income for various periods of time.

Tax advantages of an annuity:

  • Tax deferred growth and compounding within the annuity contract period
  • Guaranteed rates of return
  • Guaranteed lifetime payments if you annuitize
  • Fixed income payout options
  • Options on how to fund the annuity (all up front, via scheduled payments or deposits, etc.
