Talk Credit Radio: What You Need to Know About Annuities

Advertiser Disclosure Comments 0 Comments

Today on Talk Credit Radio: Friday, July 8, 2011

Across the country, many older Americans are struggling with low rates of return on traditional savings accounts and CDs that make it difficult to pay their bills without draining their retirement savings. For some, an annuity would make it possible to turn those savings into a lifetime income stream. Annuities were even recommended in a report by the Obama administration’s Middle Class Task Force. They are not without controversy, though. High fees and high sales pressure have led to heavy criticism of some annuity products.

On Friday, July 8, 2011, Steve Brenneman, vice president of American General’s Group Annuity Division will join Talk Credit Radio to explain how annuities work, and what you need to know —and watch out for—if you are considering one. Steve currently manages a division that provides annuity solutions to more than 1,000 groups.
