The 5 Annuity Don'ts

Get the right annuity by learning what NOT to do. This brief video cuts right the point, clear and simple. Today, with bonds paying so little, and retirements lasting so long, many retiring professionals see annuities as a smart choice for their 401(k)/IRA rollover. But WHICH annuity?  In this video, Steve explains annuities in easy-to-understand terms,  helping you to:

  • Learn the different types of annuities
  • Learn how to compare annuities and their ratings, to avoid confusion
  • Learn how to make sure your heirs are protected
  • Learn which annuities cost the least and pay the most
  • Learn how to keep everything simple, avoid mistakes, and stay in control

Honest Guidance:

Steve and his team research up to 1200 retirement annuities daily, rejecting over 98% of them.  Find out why.

What is an annuity? It is simply one financial tool in your toolbox when completing a lifetime financial plan. Please don't buy annuities off the internet or from an agent who is really just a salesman. You owe it to yourself to learn the many types of annuities and their rankings--working with an experienced fiduciary capable of constructing a complete financial plan for you.

The annuities of old are a thing of the past. Our unique process reviews up to 1200+ annuities to help you arrive at your optimal annuity decision. No one does it better (we say that humbly.)  And yes, we DO reject well over 98% of all annuities on the street. We can help you prevent mistakes. In fact, that is a big part of our job:  We help protect our clients from making the wrong choice. It all starts with education. There is never any sales pressure. Today you can enjoy uncapped growth potential, no market losses, no management fees, and income growth guaranteed in the range of 5% to 9.77% annually, or higher, depending on your age and deferral period. The insurance company does NOT keep your money when you die!

Retire on 35% to 40% more income

Every year, more retiring engineers, teachers, health care professionals, managers, lawyers, accountants, and tech workers choose annuities for all or part of their 401k, 403b & IRA rollovers. Why? 

  • Preservation of principal
  • Certainty of income for 2 spouses from the same IRA
  • More income than bond funds, with better safety
  • A way to “buy a pension”, without “locking up” your money
  • Strong diversification (non-correlated to stock market or real estate.)

Is you retirement income truly secure? If you are married, do you have an income plan in place for when one of you passes away? Securing retirement income for life for both you and your spouse is the single most important first step in financial planning for retirement. As more companies move away from pension plans to 401k plans, smart retirees are recognizing that --annuities are the practical way to get the benefits of  a conservative investment combined with exceptional lasting income.  Investing in retirement is complicated and risk. Today's NEXT GENERATION retirement annuities make life simple again. You stay in control of your principal while your income grows. You move up with your money, never down, forward never back. Many people want to skip the risk of the market and just collect paychecks (mailbox money). With the right annuity, you never experience a market loss. There is on management or advisor fee deducted from your principal. And, you may enjoy a lifetime income like a pension--without "annuitizing."  We're happy to help you compare annuities and share our years of research and experience with you.

What people are saying about "Smart is the New Rich"
an Amazon best seller in three categories

– Must read

I'm a Certified Financial Adviser, and if I didn't run my own company I would join this guy’s. Seriously, it's a must-read in today's new financial reality. In fact … I'm handing these books out to many of my clients for free, it's THAT important! Thanks, Steve, I hope to meet you in person one of these days.

Yuerg Eichmann | March 17, 2016

– Must read for retirement planning

“Smart Is the New Rich” is a great overview of the many facets of retirement planning. It has changed my thinking about how much capital I have versus how much income I will have in retirement. The book provides easy-to-understand, side-by-side comparisons of risks and growth of hypothetical investments in Hybrid Fixed Indexed Annuities and the securities market. A good read and great reference for retirement planning for all age groups!

William Thomas | March 17, 2016

– Straight talk about retirement strategies

The SMART thing to do is buy this book, read it, tell your friends and keep it handy for future reference. It is an easy read, interesting, clearly written and full of valuable information. “Smart Is the New Rich” gives a practical, no-nonsense approach to the “de-accumulation phase” of investing and is helping me sort out my retirement plan. Of particular interest is the clarification of the strengths and weaknesses of the various types of annuities. Although the charts and graphs are a bit small in the book, the Kindle version allows expansion of the text and is therefore easy to read. If you are nearing retirement and seeking a reliable and sustainable income for a lifetime, I highly recommend you read this book!!!

– Straight talk about retirement strategies

"After looking into annuities, and getting very confused by all the sales lingo, this book was a refreshing change. I appreciated its clear definitions of the different kinds of annuities, their pluses and downsides, and under which circumstances one may work well while another would flop. No hard-sells, no marketing jargon, just good information. Wish the rest of the annuity industry would take notes."

Is that what you want? We can help. MyAnnuityGuy is a service of IQ Wealth Management, a financial planning firm in Scottsdale, Arizona.

The company’s many satisfied clients include retired (and soon to retire) engineers, teachers, managers, technicians, and business owners who want to:

  • Secure their retirement nest eggs while growing their income
  • Build an income replacement plan that does not rely on market performance in order to succeed
  • Provide guaranteed income for life, without annuitizing and without losing control
  • Protect their heirs
  • Maintain liquid access to their money
  • Decrease the amount of taxes they pay, where-ever and whenever possible
  • Lower their overall fees, expenses, and costs

Since 1996, Steve has built his practice around these three core principles:

  1. Honesty: No over-the-top sale pitches… just the facts. Period.
  2. Transparency: No hidden fees. No fine print without clear and easy to understand explanations. No mumbo-jumbo.
  3. Integrity: The company’s fiduciary duty is to their clients, not to a bank manager or a broker dealer.

Steve uses a unique process to review up to 1,200 annuities or more--playing no favorites-- giving his clients a critical advantage not found with most agents.

Steve is an Accredited Investment Fiduciary.

His company, IQ Wealth Management™, also provides clients with access to a number of proprietary annuities from major carriers, not available to over 99% of all other agents.
