  • Preparing for Retirement in Madison Wisconsin

    Getting together your retirement plan is definitely a necessity in these times. You might not know all the details about your retirement plan, or maybe feel behind. Maybe you are trying to make your financial future as safe as can be. For most people, annuities are a good option to secure large amounts of money for retirement. Ready to invest in an annuity? You have to decide on a few things. You will decide how annuity payouts will function, the payout schedule, and who will get it after your death. By talking with your financial advisor, you can find out if an annuity fits your retirement plan. They will help you through the many annuity options.

    Choosing a Fixed Rate is a Smart Choice

    All annuities are either fixed rate or variable rate: how can you decide on the right one for you? A fixed rate annuity does not have the opportunity to go up in value, but you can be sure of the value you’re going to get out of it. A variable rate annuity has the chance to increase in value based on how its underlying investments perform. Both value and risk come with variable rate annuities – you need to decide what’s better for you. You may have the option to use a blend of fixed rate and variable rate investments to have a more diverse annuity. If you’re having a difficult time choosing between a variable or fixed rate annuity, you should talk to your independent financial advisor.
