*An immediate annuity will not have an accumulation phase
Annuities are long-term insurance contracts intended for retirement planning. Annuities also may be subject to income tax and, if taken prior to age 59 ½, an additional 10% IRS tax penalty may apply. Because Protective and its representatives do not offer legal or tax advice, it is important that you talk with your own legal and tax advisor about your specific tax situation.
