What Are Annuities and Do They Deserve Their Reputation?

If you have heard that annuities are a bad deal because of their large fees, you’re not alone. At best, annuities have a mixed reputation. For many, they are an evil tool designed to take our money.

Investing in Retirement: How Can Retirees Fight Back Against Low Interest Rates

For younger adults, living in a low-interest rate environment is great! Your monthly mortgage payments are cheaper, you have to pay less on your credit cards and the economy is boosted.

But, as you get closer to retirement, you start to see interest rates slightly differently. Instead of helping, low interest rates actually start to hurt in your 60s and older.

Why? Because all of your “safe” investments, including savings accounts and money market funds are impacted by low interest rates.

My guest today is Pam Kreuger. She is the creator, co-host, and executive producer of MoneyTrack, a PBS show. Now, she wants to share her advice with you… for FREE!

I hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity to improve your financial situation!

Do you struggle to find wise investments in a low-interest-rate environment? What are you doing to improve your financial situation? What questions would you like me to ask Pam on a future show? Please join the conversation.
