Employer-sponsored retirement plans, generally referred to in the aggregate as qualified employee plans, constitute one of the important “legs” of the retirement stool that individuals look to for their income in retirement. The other two legs of that stool are personal savings—through investment in securities, deferred annuities, savings accounts, etc.—and Social Security retirement benefits. This course will examine qualified employee plans, their limits and their tax treatment along with a discussion of annuities and their taxation.

Annuities offer their owners the opportunity to systematically liquidate a principal sum or save money for a long-term objective. For many annuity buyers, that objective is to provide income during retirement.  As we will see in our examination of annuities, they provide owners with a number of advantages; principal among them is their tax treatment.  By purchasing and investing in an annuity, a contract owner can avoid current income taxation of earnings.  By avoiding current income taxation, earnings that might have been used to pay current income taxes can be invested to produce additional income.
