Avoidance is the Enemy

With the holidays upon us wouldn’t it be a great idea to face avoidance of planning your future?  What a gift it could be to you and your spouse, your children or those that you are close to. Planning now helps secure your future without burdening other family members when you can’t make ends meet.

 Reality Is:

In this day and age many people haven’t prepared for their future, much less retirement. Many have avoided it due to thinking, “I have a long time until I am going to retire”, or “I am never going to be able to retire, I will have to work until I am 80 (or longer). What if you could have Guaranteed Income — for Life ? One way to do this is to work longer, or you can scale back on significantly on your lifestyle in retirement and make do with less.  Another solution? Consider supplementing your retirement savings portfolio with an annuity.

Definition of an Annuity:

The definition of an annuity is:

  • a fixed sum of money paid to someone each year, typically for the rest of their life.
  • a form of insurance or investment entitling the investor to a series of annual sums.
A contract between you and an insurance company is an annuity that can provide you with a reliable income stream for a determined period of time in exchange for a lump-sum investment or series of investments.

Types of Annuities:

There are two types of annuities: deferred and immediate.

With a deferred annuity, your money is invested for a certain period of time until you are ready to begin taking withdrawals, typically in retirement to use for living expenses.

If you choose an immediate annuity, you begin to receive payments soon after you make your initial investment. For example, you might consider purchasing an immediate annuity as you approach retirement age.

The deferred annuity accumulates money while the immediate annuity pays out. Deferred annuities can also be converted into immediate annuities when the owner wants to start collecting payments.

Inside of  these two categories, annuities can also be either fixed or variable which depends on whether the payout is a fixed sum, tied to the performance of the overall market or group of investments, or a combination of the two.

Don’t be like the people on the left above by avoiding planning for the future. Be the couple on the right who can enjoy their holidays knowing their future is all taken care of.

  • I have been working with the http://www.mutualfundstore.com and it seems that they have some very good financial advice to give. Your advice has me wondering if I should have another Advisor on the side. Not that the MutualFundStore isn’t good, but having more than one advisor can’t be all that bad either. Should I do this?
