Annuities and Retirement: What Can Your Annuity Do for You?

Annuities continue to play a major role in the retirement plans of many Americans. In fact, estimates hold that there are approximately 100 million people in this country who are either currently receiving money from an annuity, or scheduled to receive annuity payments in the future.

Are you one of these folks? If the answer is yes, have you truly thought through the relationship between your annuity and your retirement?

Make no mistake: receiving money from an annuity has significant advantages. There is a steady income stream you can rely upon, along with the emotional security of knowing when that money is scheduled to get to you. Such benefits cannot be discounted, and it is only reasonable that this steady flow of income is considered essential to so many annuity recipients.

However, there are also a wide range of factors that might cause people to reconsider whether waiting for these annuity payments is in fact the right choice. These include a financial crisis you did not expect that requires cash, an inherited annuity that is more trouble than it’s worth, unexpected tax complications, and the fact that so many of us now find ourselves still working past are retirement age.

If you are in the second category, here is the good news: your annuity has the power to do things for you today, even if you are not scheduled to receive any payments from it until years from now. That’s because you can sell your annuity for cash now – and use that money today, anyway you see fit.

Even better are the options available to you in terms of how to sell your annuity for cash now. For instance, you can sell all the annuity payments for one lump sum. Or, if you prefer, you can sell just a some of your percentage of the annuity – enabling you to receive both money now and a portion of your future annuity payments.
