These days, guaranteed income is never a bad thing. On May 2, 2022, I was featured in Tribune Content Agency’s article titled The Savings Game: Guaranteeing Income in Uncertain Times. The author, my friend, and syndicated columnist, Elliot Raphaelson, called on me as the go-to source for all things annuities. Every chance I get to help out with one of these national articles, I love it. It’s very fulfilling to share my knowledge with a new audience and collaborate with expert writers. Elliot was smart to mention me as the fact-teller in the annuity industry. I’m focused on contractual guarantees, and when you’re trying to guarantee income, that is exactly what you need.
The article focuses on Single Premium Immediate Annuities (SPIAs). They mention that “some of the advantages of SPIAs are they are easy to understand; they have no annual fees; the commissions (built-in) are minimal, and the income you receive is contractual and NOT dependent on market conditions.” If you’re looking to learn more about SPIAs or solidify your retirement income, this article is a great resource.
