Annuities are possibly the most common, most utilized, yet most misunderstood financial products available to consumers today. In fact, most investors have no idea that there are actually four very different and unique types of annuities available to them. Instead, most people have been misled by both the media and certain financial personalities who misrepresent and lump all annuities together as if each one works exactly the same.

So, what exactly is an annuity? According to the dictionary, an annuity is an amount of money that is systematically paid to a person for a specified period of time, often for the rest of his or her life. Essentially, an annuity is just a good old-fashioned income stream. Today there are four different types of annuities available to consumers, and it’s often likely that it would make sense for you to have at least one of them in your overall retirement plan.

When people think of life insurance they typically think of term insurance: Paying a fixed premium on a monthly basis for a guarantee* from an insurance company to pay a fixed amount of money to one’s beneficiaries. While everyone should have life insurance, the industry has evolved and created cutting-edge and versatile products that not only provide a death benefit, but also accumulate cash value. Examples include whole life insurance, universal life insurance, and variable life insurance. Each type has its own unique characteristics and traits, but the goal for each is to provide your loved ones with a sense of financial security should you die prematurely and also accumulate as much cash value as possible for you to tap into on an income-tax-free basis. More and more people are buying cash value life insurance because of the tax efficiency it offers.

Long-term care (“LTC”) is the assistance needed when one either requires help performing an activity of daily living (e.g., bathing, dressing, eating, etc.) or has a severe cognitive impairment such as Alzheimer’s disease. Because Medicare does not pay for long-term care services, such as assisted living, and only pays for the first one hundred days of skilled care (i.e., physical therapy or nursing), it may be important to consider purchasing a LTC insurance policy. With the creation of new hybrid insurance products, something that was once viewed as too expensive may now actually be a very practical purchase for you. We can guide you through that decision-making process in determining what exactly is best for your individual case.


Recognizing that no investor wants to have to pay a cent more in taxes than necessary, we can analyze how certain financial products may make sense for your financial planning in order to minimize your tax burden. Certain strategies offer tax deferral so that you only pay taxes when you actually take a withdrawal. Other products, such as life insurance, also offer the opportunity to utilize tax-free income when structured properly.
