    What can you do if they don't? What can you expect if they go tit's up?
    From the OP: "The State Guarantee Association in Tennessee insures you for up to $250K. It's kind of like an FDIC for annuities. That $250K amount is close to what I'd be investing anyway, so even if the insurance company went tits-up I'd be essentially covered."

    As long as that particular insurance company is "approved" in your state then it is covered, in TN it's up to $250K (which would be just about all of it). Each state has a list of companies and amounts, so it varies.

    Single Premium Immediate Annuity (SPIA)

    Dude, with ALL due respect, PLEASE talk to a financial advisor. Trust me, it’s worth whatever it costs.

    You’re asking for trouble seeking advice like this on a gun forum.

    There is a larger picture of YOUR overall situation that needs to be considered.

    The real answer is it may be good, it may not and I don’t think you should divulge the type of personal information on this forum necessary to make the right call.

    There are solid dudes on this forum who know a lot about guns. Some may also know finance, like myself and I too have a financial advisor who I trust. He knows everything about my financial situation and makes good choices for MY situation.

    Annuities can be an important part of a portfolio, I own several, depending on your specific situation, age, risk tolerance, tax bracket etc.........Lots of variables, including your wife.

    Youíre asking for trouble seeking advice like this on a gun forum. ESPECIALLY from the lunatics at TOS.

    True that. I'm happy to throw in my .02, but I pay a guy to handle my money. I try to be educated but I ain't a pro.

    HKGuns and utahjeepr:

    Appreciate the advice and will indeed talk to someone who does this for a living. M4C won't make my financial decisions of course, just thought asking opinions would not be a bad thing.

    Like I said earlier, my retirement will be adding X+Y+Z, then an annuity for my monthly income. No kids, so don't give a shit about leaving anything for anyone. House and all vehicles paid off already, although obviously down the road a new vehicle payment will be necessary. Other than recurring monthly bills like electricity, internet, phone, water, insurance, groceries, spending, etc. we are debt-free (and it took us a long time to get that way finally).

    Yeah but I'd rather have one of those trillion-dollar coins minted with Obama's likeness on them.
