Interest rates on investments like CDs, bonds and money market accounts have remained low for many months, often less than one percent. As a result, annuities have emerged as way to earn more money on your investment and provide guaranteed income during your retirement.
Our fixed and indexed annuities offer a guaranteed minimum interest rate of one percent. Your local Farm Bureau agent can help you understand which option would best fit your retirement strategy.
