Tax Deferral*

The Power Of Tax-deferred* Growth

If you could increase the return on your investment without taking on any more risk, would you?

That's what could happen when you invest in accounts that defer tax reporting until the time of withdrawal. Without tax deferral, assets grow more slowly. For example, when you pay taxes at the rate of 28% on your annual gains, it reduces the amount of your money that could be earning valuable interest.

Keep All Your Money Working For You

As the example in pop-up chart shows, over a 20-year period, a $100,000 investment at 8% interest grows to only $306,499 without tax deferral. However, if your money is tax deferred, all your financial gains are added to your accumulating money, which then earns compound interest over the 20-year period. So a $100,000 investment, earning 8% tax-deferred returns, will grow to $466,096 over 20 years. That´s $145,000 more in earnings. More good news—when you withdraw your money during retirement, you could likely be in a lower tax bracket at that time and could pay less in taxes.

* Tax deferral offers no additional value if an annuity is used to fund a qualified plan, such as a 401(k) or IRA. It also may not be available if the annuity is owned by a "non-natural person" such as a corporation or certain types of trusts.
