Annuities are guaranteed savings vehicles for income needs later in life.
An annuity is a contract between you and Catholic United Financial. You commit to paying premium payments to your annuity. We commit to provide you a guaranteed minimum interest rate for the life of the contract and a guaranteed source of future income with certain tax advantages (generally at retirement). The growth of an annuity is guaranteed and your principle is protected from loss.

How do I buy an annuity?
Purchasing an annuity involves an application that asks about the funding sources you will use to make your annuity premium payments. Once accepted, we issue a contract that explains your rights as the annuity owner, how the annuity will provide income once it has matured, and what a beneficary can expect if you should pass away before the balance of the annuity is paid out.
We also offer IRAs (Individual Retirement Annuities) and specialized retirement plans (TSAs and SEPs).
