Is a fixed annuity right for me?

If you're worried about coming up short, a fixed annuity can help you sleep at night. Because of their stability, fixed annuities might be well suited to those who want to make sure their money will be enough to carry them through retirement, and at least cover the bare minimum of fixed expenses.

An annuity will give you peace of mind that you won't get from volatile investments that are uncertain to predict what will happen.
