How to Choose the Most Suitable Pension and Annuity Options- Episode 97
In last week’s episode, we discussed the various ways that a guaranteed income stream can work; specifically, how annuities function in general. We received a lot of response to that topic, and more than a few questions as well.

Annuities are long-term investment products designed for retirement purposes. Guarantees are based on the claims-paying ability of the issuer subject to their terms and conditions. Early withdrawals may be subject to surrender penalties and, if taken prior to age 59½, may be subject to an additional 10% federal tax. Annuities are not FDIC insured. Certain terms and conditions apply, so please read insurance company materials carefully.
