Annuity Value: What is the future value of an annuity?

Unlike a taxable account, a fixed annuity enjoys the benefits of tax deferral. In addition, many annuity companies offer a higher first year bonus rate. To be able to offer these higher rates companies typically require you to keep the funds invested for a period of time or suffer a surrender penalty for early withdrawal. Use this calculator to help determine your annuity value in a given year and compare it to a taxable savings account like a CD*.

*CD's are issued by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) for up to $250.00 per depositor. Fixed Annuities are issued by insurance companies and are not insured by the U.S. Government. They are backed by the financial strength of the issuing company.
