    You can track the value of an annuity over time or the value and performance of the annuity. The option you prefer determines the best account for tracking the annuity.
    1. To track only the value of an annuity, add an asset account, and then manually update the account value when you receive your statements.
    2. To track both the value and the performance of an annuity, add a brokerage account. A new brokerage account is a good option for most insurance-based investments because it enables you to report on income, capital gains, and performance.
    3. And because the securities in these accounts are not exchange traded, you cannot download price updates. However, you still need to manually update the prices and holdings in the transaction list for the account.

      People come to Quicken Community for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

      1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
      2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
      3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
      4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
      5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
