Types of annuities
Fixed annuity vs variable annuity
In a fixed annuity, money is placed in fixed investments such as bonds and interest is earned for a certain duration of time. You are guaranteed a minimum interest for a specified period of time.
A variable annuity has money placed in market-based investments such as mutual funds, stocks or money markets. You also have the option to move money among different investments.
Deferred annuity vs immediate annuity
In an immediate annuity, you are guaranteed payments immediately you make your first payment. It can be permanent or for a specified period of time.
With the deferred annuity you income payments are put on hold for a period of time. This allows the money you contribute to earning interest.
Annuities are a wise investment plan. They help you to continue earning even after retirement. Call or visit us at KeyLife Principle Brokerage in Kentucky to get your option of other insurance.

Business Owner: Business Succession Planning
The death of a partner or major stockholder in a business can have devastating effects on both the business and the deceased partner’s surviving family. The business is concerned with gaining control of the deceased partner’s interest at a fair price so that it can continue operations without interference from the surviving family members. The family members are most concerned with receiving as much money as possible for their interest in the business and for capital that may be needed for estate settlement purposes.
Types of Business Owner Buy-Sell Arrangements
Entity Plan: Under this arrangement, used when there are multiple owners, each of the business owners has a separate agreement with the corporation or partnership as the entity. The entity, per the buy-sell agreement, will buy the deceased partner’s interest at his or her death.
Cross Purchase Agreement: Used in situations where there are two or three owners, a cross purchase agreement is established between each of the owners. At the death of one of the owners, the surviving owners agree to buy a proportionate share of the deceased owner’s interest.
Buy-Sell arrangements are a simple, yet effective way for business owners of privately held companies to plan for the orderly transfer of business interests where two or more owners are actively involved in the business. In addition to securing the needs of the surviving family members and ensuring the continuation of the business, a buy-sell arrangement also ensures each owner that there is a buyer for their business interest at a fair price.
