Barron’s distributes an annual ranking of the top annuities after their detailed review of hundreds of products. They rank them by category according to their type. The categories are: Immediate Payouts, Deferred Payouts, Fixed Index Annuity with Income Guarantee, and Deferred Variable Annuity.
Making their list is a huge honor and most often requires that the carrier be ‘A’ rated. Please refer to the article posted by Karen Hube titled Top 50 Annuities for seeing viewing the top products. Click here for a quick link to the article.
