Don't Die Broke: How Annuities Can Guarantee Your Income and Keep Your Retirement from Going Belly-Up By David J. Reindel
The title says it all! Massive numbers of 50-plus baby boomers will be retiring in the next few years. How will they finance that retirement? This practical guide presents an often overlooked but commonsense solution.
Reindel argues persuasively for the preservation of assets, rather than a risk-prone obsession with the accumulation of them.
Crucial to this process, he explains, is the humble annuity. Why have these time-honored investment tools generated so much negative attention in recent years? Don’t Die Broke details the financial industry’s misrepresentations of the annuity, and how — set up and managed correctly — it can offer the most reliable income source for boomers in this era of economic uncertainty.
