An annuity is an agreement between you and your insurer where you pay it money, either in a lump sum or periodically, and the insurer will pay you back in installments. Not all annuities, however, are the same.
If your insurer begins paying you back immediately, this is known as an immediate annuity. If the insurer pays you back at a later date, it is a deferred annuity.
Only immediate annuities can protect your assets and help you get medical assistance benefits. Even immediate annuities must meet specific state and federal requirements in order to be eligible for this level of protection. It is important to have an attorney help you select an annuity that meets you needs. At our firm, we will work with you to select an annuity or other estate planning tool to help you protect your assets.
