Recently there has been an increase in the number of insurers that have begun to offer group dental plans that allow members to roll over their unused maximum treatment limits to subsequent years, although some require members to visit the dentist annually or more often for preventive care, the Wall Street Journal reports.

According to insurers, the plans seek to encourage members to visit the dentist on a regular basis for preventive care to prevent tooth decay and gum disease which studies have linked with diabetes, heart disease and premature birth and reduce overall medical costs. The plans, which cost employers only slightly more than traditional plans, also encourage low-risk members not to drop their dental plans, a move that would leave a larger percentage of high-risk members and increase costs for those who remain in the plans, according to insurers.

Fixed and Variable Annuities

annuitiesAnnuities are financial contracts between you and an insurance company. You give the company money now and the company pays you an income at a later time. Annuities can be useful retirement tools in addition to having special tax advantages.

There are just two types of annuities and two payout options. Fixed annuities are generally considered to be more conservative. Variable annuities, having the potential for greater gains, have a higher risk.

  • Fixed: Fixed annuities earn a guaranteed rate of interest for a specific time period, such as one, three, or five years. Once the guarantee period is over, a new interest rate is set for the next period. The guaranteed interest rate of a fixed annuity is based on the claims-paying ability and financial health of the insurance company that issues the annuity.
  • Variable: Variable annuities typically offer a range of funding options from which you may choose. These funding options may include portfolios comprised of stocks, bonds, and money market instruments. The account value of variable annuities can go up or down based on market fluctuations. Your contributions and earnings are not guaranteed; they depend on the performance of the underlying investment options. If the funding options you choose for your annuity perform well, they may exceed the inflation rate or fixed annuity returns. If they don’t perform well, you may lose not only any earnings you’ve made, but even some of your contributions.
  • Deferred vs. Immediate Income: You can put money into a deferred annuity with a single payment or flexible payments, but immediate annuities are usually purchased with a single payment. How you receive the income from your investment also differs. As the names imply, you get money sooner from an immediate annuity and you delay getting money from a deferred annuity.
