The Pros & Cons Of Using Annuities In Retirement

I'm not going to sugar coat it... variable annuities are almost always a bad deal for retirement. However, that doesn't apply to ALL annuities.

Pros of a Properly Structured Annuity

  • Gains Without Loss 
  • Guaranteed Income With No Volatility
  • Protection Against The Market
  • Keep Control Over Your Assets

Cons of Most Variable Annuities

  • Zero Protection Against Losses
  • Guaranteed Income Riders Are Extremely Expensive
  • Securities Product, So Your Money Is In The Market
  • Confusing Crediting Methods And Penalties 

Why I Wrote This Variable Annuity Guide:

Listen, I don't like doom and gloom when it comes to retirement. But every month I speak with people who've been presented or sold variable annuities that do nothing but wreak havoc on the retirement plans of those who trusted their advisor was putting their money in a safer place. 99% of the time, that is the opposite of what has happened.

This guide is completely independent. I simply want anyone who is smart enough to research variable annuities on the Internet to have this information so they can make the most informed decision when it comes to the safety of your assets in retirement.

My Edward Jones advisor wanted to keep me in mutual funds and constantly tried to sell me a variable annuity. I started doing research and found Marty's guide then spoke with him. He always makes time for me and his information is sound and simple to understand.

I was concerned about making sure I have an income during retirement that I wasn't going to end up overpaying for and running out of money due to fees. Marty gave me the numbers up front, and showed me the right kind of annuity and how to use it to my advantage and protect my money. I'll never go anywhere else.
