Insure your Retirement
Annuities may come with more perceptions than any other financial product. But how many of those perceptions are reality?
One commonly held perception is that annuities are too confusing and complex for most people. But what’s the reality? It all comes down to education. If you do your homework and work with a financial services professional, you can better determine if an annuity is right for your financial strategy.
Here’s another perception about annuities: The contract owner ends up paying the commission. In reality, the insurance company generally pays the commission to the insurance agent.* However, it’s important to remember that other costs are associated with these products.
Although these are just a couple of examples, you should gather as much information as you can before you make any decisions about annuities. Don’t leave the retirement you’ve worked so hard for up to chance!

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to change my plan every year?
What is the best way to figure out the best plan for me?
For Medicare advantage prospects or clients, the next step is to check if their doctors and medical facilities are in the specific plan’s networks.
For Medicare Supplement prospects and clients, I run multiple quotes from my quote engine and compare Premiums, Industry Ratings, Rate History and pertinent market data.
The Last step is to determine any financial advantage between any 2 plans. The way I help clients do this is to write down all their anticipated medical visits and procedures for the year, then we plan for a few unexpected emergencies for good measure. Once we have our list, we price out what the different co-pays will be for each plan we are considering. The last step is to annualize the premium for each plan. Once you total all the cost, you can determine which plan might have a financial advantage.
How can I avoid the Donut Hole?
About 80% of Seniors have a annual combined prescription drug usage of $3,700 and therefor do not enter the donut hole. However, once in the donut hole, the Drug manufacture will discount 60% for Brand names and 49% for Generic. Seniors will exit the donut hole once their total annual out of pocket expense for prescriptions exceeds $4,950. At that point they have entered catastrophic coverage and co-pays for all covered drugs will be just a few dollars per month. Seniors are encouraged to visit Medicare.gov and use the interactive tool to estimate prescription drug costs and coverage.
Can I travel with my plans?
Some Medicare Supplement plans (C,D,F,G,M & N) offer foreign travel emergency care with limits
Which is better, a Medicare Supplement or a Medicare Advantage?
Medicare Advantage Plans are Medicare replacement plans offered by private insurance companies and vary from State to State. Plans are equally offered, regardless of age, to all medicare recipients as long as they do not have end stage renal disease. They usually offer affordable co-pays within their HMO or PPO provider Networks. Most of these health plans offer a embedded prescription drug plan at one low premium. All plans are required to cap expenses with an out of pocket maximum any where from $3,400-$6,700. Some plans offer extra benefits like Dental, vision and Gym memberships to add value to their plans. Plans are subject to change annually and therefor the Federal Government allows an Annual Election Period (AEP) for Seniors to reevaluate their changing needs.
