This asset class consists of short-term debt instruments and government securities which carry little risk. They generally pay more interest than savings accounts or CDs, but historically their returns have been lower than those of stocks and bonds. Keep in mind that an investment in a money market fund or annuity account is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) or any other government agency and that it is possible to lose money with these investments.

Annuity account options are available through contracts issued by TIAA or CREF. These contracts are designed for retirement or other long-term goals and they offer a variety of income options, including lifetime income. Payments from the variable annuity accounts and mutual funds are not guaranteed and will rise or fall based on investment performance. Mutual funds do not offer the range of income options available through annuities.
