Let’s start with an annuity. An annuity is a way to ensure that you have an income during your retirement season. This is what an annuity was created for. It acts as a source of income for you during this time. The question is, how does the money in this account and plan get there, and how does it grow.

The way these plans grow is through contributions made by the plan owner. Any income that the person is making before retirement can be used to make contributions to the account. For annuities, these contributions are usually large sums. This means instead of making small contributions, one large contribution is made quarterly.

There are several different kinds of annuities, and these can become complex very quickly if there is no one to explain their differences. Each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages, but it ultimately depends on how you would like to contribute to the account.

Lastly, it is important to know that this plan is a tax-deferred plan. This means as you are making contributions, your account is growing with no tax but, when you’re ready to make a withdrawal, then the amount will be taxed.


For a 401K, there are two kinds. There is the traditional 401K and the Roth 401K. Traditional 401K’s are the ones that many are familiar with. This is because many employers offer this plan to their employees. This plan is a tax-deferred plan, just like an annuity. So, income tax will be paid when a withdrawal is made.

For a Roth 401K, the plan is a tax-free plan. This means that income tax is not removed with a withdrawal is made. Most employers don’t offer this plan, and employees have to go and get this plan for themselves.

Again, it depends on the benefits you are looking for in a retirement plan. Both of these have contributions from both the plan owner and, most of the time, their employer. Employers set an amount that they will contribute at the beginning of employment.

401K’s are one of the simpler plans and are one of the most used plans for this is a great consideration as well.

The Difference Between an Annuity & 401K

There are major differences between an Annuity & 401K. One of the first ways they are different is the way in which contributions are made.

For annuities, contributions are made mainly in large sums and by the plan owner. With a 401K plan, owners can make contributions with periodic payments. So, if they wanted to add a certain amount from their salary every month, they can do that.

In addition to that, their employers can contribute to their accounts. The amount they contribute can match the amount the person is paying or come up with their own amount.
