My understanding is that with a fixed annuity you put in a certain amount and you are given a certain amount back on a regular schedule until you leave the planet. I've never had one and never plan to, but I don't think the idea is inherently bad.

This page has a pretty simple explanation. I suspect anything simpler will leave out important information. I'd never heard of the equity annuities. That might be newish. I would think that if you're a person looking into an annuity then you're probably only comfortable with fixed. That's my impression. People go to them for the security of a steady income.

Wish I could be of moresome help.
