Choosing An Annuity Based On Your State

Wendy Swanson, Retirement Income Certified Professional™, explains how you can purchase an annuity.

Annuities are insurance products that are regulated at the state level. When you buy an annuity in a specific state, the contract is subject to the state’s standards for charges, benefits and protections.

Annuity companies must be licensed to sell an annuity in the state. Some states traditionally have fewer restrictions on annuities, which may translate to less protection for consumers.

Some states require insurers to allow a 21-day free look period for fixed and variable annuities. This gives buyers time to review and consider the terms of their investment. Buyers can cancel their investment without penalty during the free-look period.
