An annuity income might be provided by an old-fashioned pension, but many employees no longer have access to that kind of pension. The alternative for them would be to use personal savings or funds from a 401k to purchase an annuity from an insurance company. The study found that the presence of some sort of annuity income stream was a particularly significant factor in retirement happiness in households without a lot of retirement investments.</p> <p>This leads to some interesting questions about when retirees should buy a private annuity.</p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-link field--type-link field--label-hidden field--item"><a href="https://www.towerswatson.com/en/insights/newsletters/americas/insider/2012/annuities-and-retirement-happiness">Annuities and Retirement Happiness</a></div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--items"> <div class="field--item"><a href="https://30-year-vacation-8.lndo.site/tags/retirement-income" hreflang="en">Retirement income</a></div> </div> Mon, 07 Aug 2017 13:17:01 +0000 admin 257 at https://30-year-vacation-8.lndo.site
