You can’t predict what your future holds, but you may be able to make it more secure. When you purchase an American National fixed deferred annuity, you’ll be secure in the knowledge that your principal is safe, and you’ll earn a fixed rate of return. Plus, when you’re ready, you’ll be able to convert your annuity assets into fixed income payments as well.
Benefits of American National fixed deferred annuities include:
Tax deferred growth – You won’t pay any income taxes on the interest you earn until you withdraw it.
Guaranteed interest rate – No matter what the market does, you are assured a minimum rate of return.
Fixed rate of return – Interest rates are set by American National for a specified period of time.
Access to annuity value – there are several options that allow access to the accumulated annuity value, including partial withdrawals and conversion to income payment options. Withdrawals may be subject to taxes and surrender charges.

Locate an annuity contract
Sometimes annuity contract policyholders forget to tell beneficiaries about their policies. If you think you are a named beneficiary on a deceased loved one’s annuity contract, the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC) can help. Use the NAIC life insurance policy locator to start the process.
Once requested, the NAIC will:
· Ask participating companies to search their records
· Ask those companies to reach out to you. But, you must be the designated beneficiary or authorized to receive information.
Visit the NAIC’s list of Frequently Asked Questions if you have any other questions.
