Confinement Care Riders 101

According to a recent article by annuity guru Stan Haithcock, deferred annuities with attached confinement care riders are the “most recent overhyped benefit touted by agents.” Although Haithcock does add that they do have a place in many portfolios, but as usual, only if they are fully understood. So what is a confinement care rider and what does it do? Here’s a look at that, and also some ideas on what they DON’T do too.Income riders can be added to some deferred variable and... Read More

Low Rates Spark Interest in Indexed Annuities

With no real sign of an increase in interest rates, investors continue to look for places to put their money that promise both safety and reasonable returns. Retirees who thought the rate boost was on the horizon have been waiting to earn more on their certificates of deposit and money market funds for quite some time now, with little to show for it. Fed up, people are looking into other options, mainly insurance products, that offer both attractive returns and principal protection. According... Read More

Fixed Annuity With Income Stream Makes for Happy Retirees

Perhaps the biggest financial challenge facing us today is how to turn our retirement savings into income. In "Advisors Challenged To Convert Savings To Retirement Income," Financial Advisor's Juliette Fairley discussed some of the findings from a recent IRI survey. The Insured Retirement Institute found that 80% of retirees who have at least $50,000 saved get income from an annuity or pension. But pensions will be few and far between in the future, so the focus on annuity products for... Read More

Fixed & Variable Annuity Sales Push Total Figures Slightly Upward

Last week, the LifeHealthPro Editors summarized the IRI's second quarter annuity sales report and found that "Annuity sales (are) trending slightly up year over year."

Fixed Indexed Annuity Benefits Are Still In Demand

There is still a case to be made for buying fixed indexed annuity products. Before they were included in the DOL's fiduciary rule, FIA sales were sky high and on an eight year streak of increases. Since the rule has been announced, some experts are wary of the future of the indexed annuity market and I've seen forecasts predicting more than a 30% sales decline. But fixed indexed annuity products still offer the same benefits, benefits that many retirees find useful and valuable. Financial... Read More

Commission-Based Variable Annuity Can Still Be In Consumers’ Best Interest

After the DOL fiduciary guidelines, some people are under the false impression that all commission-based products are bad for consumers. This simply isn't the case. You have to take into account both the individual product details as well as the length of time that the product is held. In a recent article for Investment News, "Lincoln: Commissions Can Be Best Deal for Consumers," Cyril Tuohy compared how fee-based and commission-based investments effect consumers.Lincoln National looked at...
