An annuity is a retirement account with "airbags" and a seat belt. Buyers invest a sum of money in a particular annuity, and in exchange, they’re guaranteed a steady monthly check for a set number of years, or for life, their choice. On an increasing basis, annuities are being used by retiring professionals to take the risk out of their nest eggs. In years past, pensions were common. Today, it is more common NOT to have a pension. The satisfaction rate on annuities is actually far higher than mutual funds. So why do low-information newspaper and internet journalists knock annuities? Because they are LOW on information! Today, we'll fix that and we hope some uninformed journalists are listening in. Then Medicare and Health insurance expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A. You don't want to miss today's show...MASTERING MONEY IS ON THE AIR!!

In case you hadn't noticed, the future is getting just a tad more unpredictable every day. When you are putting a financial plan together for RETIREMENT, you are smart to plan for the worst while always hoping for the best. Annuities are not for young investors. They are for those planning a retirement that is not subject to the whims of bad markets and economies. The key benefit that modern day annuities may provide a retired person is a contractual guarantee of principal and income—regardless of market conditions.There are four different types of annuities, and due to current low interest rates and volatile markets, THREE of those types may not be as advantageous as the fourth. That said, all four kinds of annuities are allowed by the IRS to fund an IRA Rollover. Today, Steve will review exactly WHICH annuities are leading the pack. Then Medicare expert Shelley Grandidge joins us for the Q & A.

Today on Mastering Money, we begin a series on how and where to invest in the inevitable trends coming our way. Too often, investors take a haphazard approach to the market, doing it themselves or settling for a cookie-cutter portfolio from a big box brokerage. Here’s the problem: your portfolio will likely look the same as almost everyone who walks through the door of the same age, and answers the risk tolerance questionnaire in similar fashion. That's because the models are put together for uniformity and for legal protection for the big box broker. But where does that leave you? With a cookie-cutter portfolio that everyone else has! That approach didn't work out so well in 2008. Today we'll review how to invest in the INEVITABLE trends coming our way. Then mortgage expert Mitch Boxberger joins us. A great and TIMELY show for you today...MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!!
