Introduction To Annuities: Conclusion

Though annuities started out as fairly simple investing and income vehicles, they've evolved into complex products that can be misunderstood and misused in the financial marketplace. Still, with the right research and due diligence, you can use annuities to give you an income stream that you can count on throughout your retirement. With the shaky state of pensions and Social Security, an annuity might be the perfect retirement income vehicle for you. Before you get involved, however, it's important to consult with a financial specialist to ensure that it's the right choice for you.
