5. No required minimum distributions. Unlike many other retirement accounts, there’s no requirement to start drawing down your annuity once you reach age 70½, unless the annuity is held inside, say, a traditional IRA. An annuity should not be held inside a traditional IRA if the sole purpose is for the tax deferral benefit because annuities are tax deferred vehicles without having to be held in a traditional IRA.
