I came across a press release issued by the U.S. Department of the Treasury a little less than a year ago, and thought to share it with you. J. Mark Iwry, Senior Advisor to the Secretary of the Treasury and Deputy Assistant Secretary for Retirement and Health Policy was quoted as saying “As boomers approach retirement and life expectancies increase, income annuities can be an important planning tool for a secure retirement” and “Treasury is working to expand the availability of retirement income options for working families. By encouraging the use of income annuities, today’s guidance can help retirees protect themselves from outliving their savings.” Call us if you would like to discuss what retirement income options may be available to you. We’re here to help.
