StateTrust Life & Annuities has the experience, knowledge and personnel specializing in effective strategies to achieve a stable retirement. The main objective of retirement is to have an income that allows you a standard of living similar to or better than the one you enjoyed while you were fully employed.
When saving for retirement, your goal should be to maximize your earning potential and minimize risks. Establishing the means to achieve a stable income requires systematic savings over time and a professional investment methodology. There are several steps you must take to ensure a safe retirement:
- Start saving as soon as possible.
- Make a retirement plan.
- Invest in a diversified portfolio of stocks and bonds.
- Follow your progress regularly and make adjustments.
- Plan an exit strategy (determine when to start withdrawing money and how much).

When you retire, you stop receiving a stable income. So, income after retirement must come from capital generated during your working years.

|Others use their retirement to devote more time to family, take on new activities, etc.
|Some are forced to retire for health reasons or drastic changes in their family life.
|Several companies have an established age of retirement, to open opportunities for the new generations.
|There are labor laws that set retirement at the age of 65. At that age, public financial resources are made available to new retirees.
Annuities are an important source of income during retirement. They serve as an additional source of income beyond a retirement pension. In fact, they serve as complements to other retirement benefits.
Annuities are paid in advance. This way, when you retire, you can receive a monthly or annual payment. Depending on the type of annuity, this payment may be guaranteed or variable.
When you buy an annuity, you agree to contribute a specific amount of money to the company that sells you the annuity. In return, the company that issued the annuity will make a series of payments to you at the time of withdrawal.
In essence, through an annuity agreement you are contributing your money to the company that issues the annuity. These resources will be returned later, during retirement, with interest or income generated by investment instruments.
