Annuity Key Benefits

Choose an annuity that's right for you.

RiverSource® annuities offer many benefits that can help provide the retirement income you need and protect what matters most to you. For example, the money in an annuity grows tax deferred, giving retirement savings the potential to grow faster. And you can choose when to take income from an annuity — when you need it or for your lifetime. Each of the types of annuities listed below offers additional unique benefits.

Variable annuities

With a RiverSource® variable annuity, you have the opportunity to take advantage of market gains over time. You can benefit from:

  • Accumulation: Take advantage of the market's growth potential to build as much wealth as possible.
  • Flexibility: Choose from a wide range of investment options from well-known fund families.
  • Guaranteed lifetime income: Create guaranteed lifetime income with the optional SecureSource® benefits, available for a fee.
  • Wealth transfer: Protect your legacy with guaranteed death benefits and transfer assets directly to your beneficiaries.

Structured annuities

RiverSource Structured SolutionsSM annuity provides you with opportunities to grow your money and a level of protection that can help eliminate some of the risk that comes from investing. You can benefit from:

  • Exposure to equity markets: This can give you the growth potential you need to help achieve your goals.
  • The potential for growth: Your money can grow based on the crediting method of the indexed accounts you select. You are not invested in the market. Instead, the performance of the underlying indexes or Exchange Traded Fund will determine how much you can earn (either up to a cap or subject to a fee).
  • A level of protection: Each indexed account includes a protection option – a buffer or a floor. If the index has a negative return, your losses will be reduced by a buffer or limited to a floor. While you can lose money, you will have a safeguard in place that may help lessen the impact of negative performance.
