Annuities were established for the purpose of providing a regular income stream upon retirement. They can be shaped and sized according to your needs and give you the option to begin receiving the income at a future date or immediately. You can fund your annuity gradually or all at once. Depending on the type of annuity, its value can be tied to a fixed interest rate or the performance of underlying investment funds.
The goal of retirees — past, present, and future — is to have a source of income. In the past, retirees could rely on Social Security and employer-sponsored pensions as that source of income. Over the years, much has changed. Today, life expectancies have increased, while the certainty of Social Security and employer-sponsored pension plans has diminished. By all estimates, the next generation of retirees, the baby boomers, will live longer and spend more time being retired than any previous generation.
