Commissions are paid to the agent by the issuing carrier…..and is built into the product. In other words, you don’t see it. Commission levels depend on the product type. The simpler the product, the lower the built in commission.
MYGAs and SPIAs can be 0.50% to 2%. Indexed and variable annuities can have commissions ranging from 5% to over 10%. Once again, it depends on the product and carrier.
If you have a specific product in mind, I can tell you the commission range.

How does the application process work in terms of how an insurance company qualifies your application for ability to pay the premium? Do you need to show proof of funds? How does it work specifically? Once you determine the amount you care to purchase, say $100,000, can they provide all the specifics of the contract before receiving payment or guarantee of payment?
The application process is very simple with all of the Annuities.direct®® sites: (SPIA.direct®, DIAS.direct®, QLAC.direct®, and MYGA.direct®). 95% of the process is done online, with online forms…with the final 5% handled by a licensed administrative person (non-agent). The application process involves suitability questions. The vast majority of annuities are single premium. You can either write a check, or wire the funds directly to the carriers. Regarding do you need to show proof of funds? No. You fill out the application by answering the suitability questions. Regarding how does it work specifically? Not sure if you are talking about the application process, or carrier suitability. Please call me so I can clarify. Regarding, once you determine the amount you care to purchase, say $100,000, can they provide all the specifics of the contract before receiving payment or guarantee of payment? Yes.

Yes, the carrier would just recalculate the lifetime income stream based on your life expectancy and current rates at the time you start the payments. However, most policies only allow you to change the start date one time.
- My income will start at the future date I choose when I contract with the annuity company.
- The longer I wait for the income stream to start the more income I will receive.
- For example: If I am 60 years old and deposit $50,000 in a DIA, I can contractually postpone my income payments until age 65, 70, or even later.
- If I pass before I begin receiving my first monthly payment my beneficiary(s) will receive a lump-sum return of the initial premium.
- If I pass after I begin receiving my monthly payments my payments will continue for a specified period of time to my beneficiary(s).
- I will take the time to plan exactly how I want my DIA to be structured.
- This is in reference to the guaranteed contractual income payment. Life with a Balance Refunded is when I die my beneficiary(s) will receive the balance of my initial premium payment in either a lump sum or remaining installments.
