Making Your Money Last for a Lifetime: Why You Need to Know About Annuities

 

Making Your Money Last for a Lifetime: Why You Need to Know About Annuities provides information and guidelines for people on how to make their savings last. It helps explain the important role that immediate annuities can play by stretching out your money to make sure it will last no matter how long you will live.

 

This booklet is intended to provide general information. It should not be used as a substitute for legal or other professional advice. Regulations governing retirement plans change rather often, and can apply differently to people in different circumstances. Because the booklet is meant only for general guidance, persons wanting specific advice suitable for their own circumstances should engage a qualified professional advisor such as an actuary who counsels individuals, an attorney, or a financial planner. Every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in these materials were true and accurate at the time of publication. Some information may have changed since publication.
