You should consider an annuity a long-term investment and not invest money that you may need for unexpected expenses. You should not buy an annuity in any company that is not financially strong — it is not worth the problems you may encounter. If you are buying because of attractive tax treatment, be aware that Congress can change tax laws. The chance that this could happen increases with long-term investments. While annuities are simple in principle, there are many options and complexities including the effect of tax laws.
