The Problem with Annuities

March 31, 2018

On this week’s Hanson McClain’s Money Matters, Scott and Pat take several calls and talk about the problem with annuities, playing a voicemail they received from an annuity wholesaler.


Scott and Pat take a call from a woman who is 70 years old and wants to know how much money she should have in stocks versus bonds. A caller attended a living trust seminar and wants to know if he and his wife need one. A 59-year-old woman was laid off and wants to know if she should cash out her 401(k) and pay off her rental home and condo or sell the condo and move back to her rental home. Lastly, a caller wants to know if he should purchase long-term care insurance and if so what kind.
