There are considerations to keep in mind, such as a surrender-charge period on full surrenders and on certain withdrawals. Account value will be impacted by withdrawals. These vary by contract so you want to ensure you are aware of these elements before you purchase an annuity. Withdrawals many be subject to federal and/or state income taxes. An additional 10% federal tax may apply if individuals make withdrawals or surrender their annuity before age 59 ½.
