Immediate Annuities are named immediate because they provide an immediate income usually within one month of a deposit or contract with an Insurance company. Many investors use this type of annuity to create a personal pension or to spread out the tax burden of a large lump sum of money.
Multi Year Guaranteed Annuities or MYGA’s are multi year guaranteed annuities that offer a fixed rate of return that is contractually guaranteed by the insurance carrier. There are varying terms ranging from 3 years up to 10 years. Many investors use these types of annuities for College Savings, Laddering Strategies, or a simple savings plan that is guaranteed and offers a higher interest rate than traditional CD’s.
Individual Retirement Accounts are really easy to set up. First you need to decide if you want tax free money or to pay taxes when you receive your distributions when you retire. Once you decide that, you will need to choose your underlying investment. We suggest an annuity based on all of its features and options compared to mutual funds and other mainstream investments that truly have the potential to lose value. Accounts can be started with as little as 2k for qualified accounts and 10k for non qualified accounts. Click the image to find out more.
When you decide to open a Roth IRA, we suggest a Roth IRA Annuity. The Roth IRA Annuity is just like a Roth IRA but the underlying investment is an annuity contract. There are many benefits of owning a Roth IRA Annuity as with any Roth, the distributions are tax free in you have the account open at least 5 years and there are no minimum distributions at age 70.5.

SEP IRA’s are designed for the self employed or better know as the Simplified Employee Pension Plan. There are many choices for IRA’s and the SEP is just only one. Simplified Employee Pension (SEP) plans can provide a significant source of income at retirement by allowing employers to set aside money in retirement accounts for themselves and their employees. A SEP does not have the start-up and operating costs of a conventional retirement plan and allows for a contribution of up to 25 percent of each employee’s pay. Click the image to find out more.

Jack Fleming started Maryland Annuity Resource as an educational website for his clients he met through his Insurance Agency Comrade Financial Group. Annuities are just part of the business but the most misunderstood insurance product in this business. Many of our clients are well underfunded for their retirement and we realized that in addition to their IRA, SEP IRA, or 401(k) plan, that an Annuity was a wise investment as an additional source of income. Jack is married as resides in Germantown, Maryland with his wife and two boys. Jack Fleming is a licensed Insurance Broker or Annuity Broker in this case. Jack holds the Title, Life, Health, and Annuity License from the State of Maryland, State of Virginia, and Washington D.C. Rest assured as we also carrier 1 million/2 million errors and omissions insurance that is additional to running this business as a Sole Proprietorship. Many brokers will start a LLC to hide behind the protections of that entity to reduce liability. We do not work that way and remain liable for everything we do and say to you. Enjoy the website.
