Fixed Immediate Annuity

A fixed deferred annuity is a contract between you and SBLI which provides tax-deferred growth on your premium payment and interest earnings, as well as other important benefits such as:

  • Competitive interest crediting rates
  • Access to your funds with penalty free withdrawals
  • Access to funds in the case of terminal illness and other critical events
  • Several options to fit your income needs if and when you choose to take income from your annuity
  • Direct payment to a named beneficiary that avoids probate

An SBLI tax-deferred annuity is ideal if you:

  • Prefer a safe, predictable place to put your retirement funds
  • Have 'maxed-out' your 401(k) contributions
  • Want to save money, tax-deferred
  • Want a steady income stream for life at a later date
