What is a fixed index annuity?

A fixed index annuity is a type of long-term insurance contract that provides income retirement. These payments are based on the performance of stock market indexes, delivering payments based on the returns of this index. Fixed Index Annuities have protection against losses, but they also limit your potential gains. Still, they are a great choice for a stable, reliable 401k retirement plan. Wake County residents can gain the full advantages of this type of contract with the help of Peace of Mind Wealth Management.
