Now, everybody knows that the green line looks too good to be true. There’s got to be a catch; and there is. We have two catches. Catch number one is time. You have to pick a time commitment with an insurance company anywhere from six years or longer and you can only access out of your account 10% of your money as liquid each year.*
Now, let me explain what that means. Each and every year, if you wish to do a free withdrawal of your account, you could take 10% out of your account each and every year. So if you had a six-year account, you could pull 10% percent out of your money every year for six years. Now, in the sixth year, you can take the remainder of your money and walk away. That is a catch.
Catch number two is we have a cap. These products will never earn more than 10% a year. Each and every year, you can earn up to 10% a year on these products. Now, let me explain what that means.
If the S&P 500 goes up 5%, you could potentially earn 5%. If the S&P 500 goes up 10%, you could potentially earn 10%. But if it goes up 15, 20 or 30%, guess what I’m going to be cutting you off at? You only can make 10% a year. The great thing is is that if the market goes down, you don’t go backwards. So each and every year, you’re going to do somewhere between zero and 10%.
Now, on the indexed annuity, every 12 months, it locks in your gains and you get to keep it. That’s what I like about an indexed annuity and that’s what it makes it work.* If you like this part, click to step three.**
