CD vs Fixed Annuity

The below table compares and contrasts some of the key similarities and differences between a CD and a multi-year guarantee annuity. The main difference is an annuity’s interest grows tax-deferred while the interest you earn in a CD is taxable in the year it is earned, regardless of whether or not you spend it.

CDs are Considered to be More Safe Than Annuities

Bank CDs are considered an extremely safe investment because the FDIC insures them up to $250,000.

Although annuities are not insured by the federal government, they’re also considered safe because they’re insured by the issuing insurance company and, in most cases, also by state guaranty associations. It is important to make sure your annuity is issued by a highly rated insurance company.

Annuities Almost Always Pay Higher Interest Rates than CDs

As seen in the tables above, annuity rates are typically higher than CD interest rates.

Annuities Grow Tax-Deferred

Annuities grow tax-deferred while CDs do not. Tax-deferred growth means the interest compounds, so you earn interest on the funds that would have been used to pay taxes.

The IRS requires that the earnings on CDs not held in tax-preferred retirement accounts are taxed annually. This means you pay taxes on interest earned in a CD whether you spend it or not. 

 

Both CDs and Annuities Offer Some Liquidity

Annuities are not as flexible as CDs, and they have higher penalties for early withdrawals greater than the contracts free withdrawal amount. Annuity annual free withdrawal amounts vary by company but are usually either 10% of the annuity account value or interest earned.

If you close a CD earlier than scheduled, the penalty you pay is lower than the penalty you would pay if you were to withdraw funds early from an annuity.

And whereas penalties for early withdrawals from a CD typically increase each time the CD is renewed, penalties for early withdrawals from an annuity are fixed.

In addition to the penalties imposed under the annuity contract, annuity owners under the age of 59½ must pay the IRS a penalty of 10 percent for early withdrawal from an annuity.

FAQs

Most frequently asked questions and answers.


While not FDIC insured, State Guaranty Associations provide a safety net for their state’s annuity policyholders. These Guaranty Associations guarantee policyholders continue to receive coverage (up to the limits spelled out by state law) even if their insurer is declared insolvent. Source: “Learn to Invest, Investment Types, Annuities, Fixed Annuities.”  Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA).  Visit FINRA’s Fixed Annuities Webpage


You can not lose money in a fixed annuity. However, guarantees are backed by the claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company so it is important to consider an insurer’s financial rating when shopping for an annuity.

Fixed Annuities do not have any fees or expenses.
