The cumulative effect of fees and expenses can substantially reduce the growth of retirement savings.

Horace Mann Life Insurance Company underwrites Horace Mann annuity products. While you can receive the benefits of tax deferral in any product used in a tax-qualified plan, an annuity offers additional benefits, including a death benefit and the opportunity to choose lifetime income options. In order to offer these benefits, there may be additional fees included in the annuity. There are no additional tax benefits in an annuity when used in a qualified plan or IRA.

Withdrawals from a 403(b) or 457(b) annuity are restricted by the Internal Revenue Code and may be further restricted by your employer’s plan. Generally, you may make a withdrawal from a 403(b) annuity only upon reaching age 59½, severance from employment, disability or certain hardships (if allowed by the plan). Generally, you may make a withdrawal from a 457(b) annuity only upon reaching age 59½, severance from employment, or an unforeseeable emergency (if allowed by the plan). If you take money out before age 59½ you could be subject to a federal penalty tax of 10% (except for 457(b) contracts) in addition to income taxes.

Annuities should be considered long-term investments. The factors which affect your decision to contribute to a traditional or Roth IRA are complicated and can change each year.
