Could An Annuity Play A Role in Your Retirement? …When the need for spendable, dependable income outweighs the need for never-ending growth, where do you turn? With interest rates near all-time lows, and the stock market at all-time highs, the world has flipped upside down for those planning retirement! The ideal retirement situation would be the opposite of today: there would be HIGH interest rates on bonds, with plenty of low-priced stocks sending signals of a long bull market to come. And, it would be ideal to retire immediately after a recession, not before.
But that’s not how things are. Bond rates are skimpy, the market may be somewhere near a peak, and a recession has to come along one of these days. With all of this, the argument can be made that today’s Baby Boomers are retiring into one of the worst possible financial environments in history—even with all the good news. Could an annuity be a fit for your financial plan? Find out today--MASTERING MONEY is on the air!!
