Variable Annuities

Low-cost, no-load, fee-based variable annuities on the RetireOne platform include investment-only variable annuities (IOVAs), variable annuities with lifetime income benefits, and index-linked annuities (sometimes called ‘buffer annuities’ or ‘structured annuities’). Listed below are the IOVAs and VAs with lifetime income benefits. These riders are also called guaranteed lifetime withdrawal benefits, or “GLWB.”

VAs with lifetime income benefits are typically employed to create income streams. RIAs and fee-based advisors favor IOVAs as pure accumulation vehicles—for rescuing clients’ old, pricey, traditional VAs.
