I enjoyed this week’s article and thought to share it with you because it included a long list of what the author called “pertinent facts about annuities”. One item in particular caught my attention because I could not think of a more simple way to describe the reasoning behind an annuity. The article said “Life insurance guards against the risk of dying too soon, while annuities guard against the risk of living too long.” Have you ever thought that purchasing life insurance is done almost routinely and without question, probably because we tend to think of others before we think of ourselves. Now think about an annuity. Isn’t it time we focus on funding our life as much as we focus on providing for those we may leave behind? Call us. We’re here to help.
