  1. What did you think about the Variable annuity v/s fixed annuity based on Allan Roth’s article?

  2. John,

    Personally, I think the primary purpose of a lifetime annuity should be to guarantee a certain level of income. As a result — aside from rare tax planning purposes for variable annuities — I wouldn’t buy an annuity without inflation adjustments. (And Vanguard’s “guaranteed lifetime withdrawal benefit” does not come with an inflation adjustment.)
