How Interest Rates Affect Annuities

Interest rates are climbing, and that actually means larger annuity payouts! Here’s inflation’s impact on 4 types of annuities: ✔️ Single Premium Immediate Annuity: If rates are high when you buy an SPIA, you will typically see a higher rate of return. ✔️ Multi-Year Guaranteed Annuity: Interest rates directly impact MYGAs, since they provide a set interest rate for a specific period of time. ✔️ Fixed Index Annuity: If you own a fixed index annuity designed for growth, interest rates can have a significant effect. Interest rates will have less impact if you have a fixed index annuity with an income rider. ✔️ Variable Annuity: Because a variable annuity is directly invested in the market, interest rates can indirectly affect your variable annuity assets.
