    401(k), Annuities
What are the risks of rolling my 401(k) into an annuity?
29% of people found this answer helpful

Annuities are often sold as 'safe' investments. However, there are several risks you need to be aware of. First and foremost, you need to know the fee structure because annuity fees can be rather high. Second, you need to know what access you have to your assets. Many annuities entail surrender fees that lock up your assets for several years before you can move the funds without incurring stiff penalties. Third, you need to understand the fine print of any guarantees that are being offered to you. These vary dramatically across annuity products, but the guaranteed rates of return sometimes only apply to a phantom ledger that is maintained for purposes of calculating a future annuity benefit (monthly payment), versus your actual account balance. If this is the case and you elect to receive that monthly payment, you still aren't guaranteed getting the guaranteed rate because the calculation depends on how many years you receive the payments. If you die too early, your return could be negative. Furthermore, if you take an annuity option, you forfeit your account balance. So, if your guarantee only applies if you annuitize your account (take monthly benefits), you need to be confident that you will be able to live on only the monthly amount, or that you have adequate other resources to supplement the difference. This brings us to a final warning, inflation risk. Annuities can be good for protecting against downside market risk, but they can be dangerous if inflation sets in. If you have a low guaranteed rate in today's low interest rate environment, this might not be sufficient to protect you against rising prices in the future.
