Fix is In -- Guaranteed Retirement Income Vehicles
March 27, 2012
Hosted by Rich Bloomfield and Rick Durfee
In a recent study, of those aged 44 to 49 who are married with dependents, those who fear outliving retirement assets more than death is 82%! Do you wish you had income for retirement that was guaranteed? Is there such a thing as guaranteed lifetime income - and what about indexing for inflation so you can stay even during retirement? Given the choice, why would 80% of baby boomers today choose an investment with a 4% return and a guarantee against losses over one that paid 8% but was subject to market downturns? Did you realize that your retirement will likely last 30 years or longer? How will you have adequate income during those years without running out of money? What if your retirement nest egg went up with the market but never went down? What if you could lock in gains, but never experience losses? In the first of several shows on this topic, Rich and Rick answer these questions and introduce some must know retirement income strategies that will surprise you. Tune in!
