What is your retirement plan?

If you are planning for retirement, or even if you’re already there, consider a Charitable Gift Annuity. For alumni and friends who depend on the income received from CDs, you will see that a gift annuity can provide twice the return today as traditional CDs. For example, if you are 78, you would receive a 6.7 percent return for life on a $10,000 annuity. Donors receive an immediate tax deduction, and part of each payment is tax-free. After your lifetime, UIW receives the remainder.

Deferred gift annuities are also a great option for those looking ahead at retirement. They can provide a substantial tax deduction in the year of the gift and a locked-in return of 7.7 percent at age 70. Call us for an illustration and request a brochure today!
