Variable annuity sales were up last year, too; the Insured Retirement Institute found that the total number of assets placed into variable annuities in 2010 was $1.5 trillion. In the fourth quarter alone, sales improved 18 percent over the fourth quarter of 2009.

For indexed annuities and variable annuities, these numbers are all-time highs, and continue a steady increase from the previous three years.
