Gelinas Financial Group, GA, MYGA AnnuitiesWhen comparing CD's and multi-year guaranteed annuities here are a few things you should consider. CD: Banks typically issue CD's.  That provides the protection of the FDIC (up to $100,000).  The interest rate for bank CD's tends to be minimal.  Less than 1% in most cases.  CD's are taxed yearly.  You will be penalized if you take withdrawals. With CD's,  flexibility and growth are minimal. Multi-Year Guaranteed Annuities: Multi-Year Guaranteed Annuities tend to be more flexible and have much better growth.  The annuities are issued by insurance company and are not insured by the FDIC.  Do your homework and review the financial strength ratings of the insurance company before any investments.  State guaranty funds protect your multi-year guaranteed annuities-from $100,000-$300,000 (in most states) and up to $500,000 in states like Washington and New York.   You will receive a higher interest rate for the annuities and there are tax benefits also.   Any gains that you receive with your MYGA will not be taxed on a yearly basis, giving you a better return than a bank CD. If, however, you decided to cash out of your annuity before you turn 59 1/2, the IRS will penalize you by taking 10% of the interest gains.  Best option is to roll the money over into another annuity. You can also make withdrawals on the previous year's interest without any kind of penalty.
