What is an Annuity?
You can transfer your money into an Annuity where your money can grow, and then take a set amount of money out for the rest of your life. You can never outlive your money, and if when die, your family receives the remaining value, without going through probate.
That’s the basics. Annuities can have a wide range of other benefits, also. Each annuity tries to stand out in a different way.
Our agency specializes in listening to you, the client, as you tell us more about you and your wants & needs. Then we go and find you the annuity that best gets you what you want.
