It is an ideal savings vehicle for those individuals who want the ability to customize their retirement savings strategy.

Who can benefit from annuities?If you are wanting to guarantee income upon retirement that will last your entire life, an annuity is the perfect vehicle for a safe savings account. It can also be used for a college savings and as a retirement plan rollover.
What's the impact of tax deferred interest in my account?
Annuity interest earnings grow tax deferred meaning no taxes are due until the interest is withdrawn, which can be many years later. This allows the interest to earn interest and compound over time. The longer the funds remain in the annuity, the greater the earnings will be.
With a deferred annuity, the interest earnings are taxable when withdrawn from the annuity but you control the timing of the withdrawal and continue to earn compound interest as long as you keep the interest in the annuity.
