Fixed Indexed Annuity Retirement Options in Waco, Texas


At Secured First Financial we use strategies that give you the upside potential of the stock market without the risk of downside loss. We used some of the top indexed annuities for retirement options in Waco, Texas  that are available on the market today to accomplish this.

Indexed Annuities are also referred to as fixed indexed annuities, because they have safety of a fixed annuity but with greater potential to accumulate interest. These annuities are linked to an index for example the S&P 500, Shiller Barclays Cape US, BNP Paribas, Russell 2000, a Global Blend, or some other index or combination of indices. The annuity company will credit interest based on which index the annuity is linked to. If the index was positive during the interest crediting period, than the indexed annuity will have positive interest credited. If the index is negative then no interest will be crediting, and this is where the downside protection applies from a built in floor.This way the value of your annuity won't decrease in value.  Any interest that is earned is locked in and this will be your new starting point for the next interest crediting period. Interest crediting periods can rang from 1, 2,3, or even 5 years depending on the annuity. If you were to withdrawal 100% of your money out of your annuity before the term is up then a surrender penalty would apply. 

 With the ups and downs of the stock market, many of people are tired of hoping they will recover what they have lost when the market goes down. You may not have time to wait and don't want to risk what you have saved up through your 401K, IRA, Mutual Funds,  or Stocks. Whether your looking to create a guaranteed income for life, accumulation, or to leave money behind, we can help.
