A new online matching service aimed to match baby boomers and retirees with annuity and retirement income specialists is now live in Arizona. Annuity123, owned by Annuity Think Tank, launched an interactive and educational website on everything about retirement income and annuities. The goal of Annuity123 is not only to provide free retirement education for consumers in Arizona, but to also provide them a site to locate the best retirement income and annuity specialists in their city. Annuity Harmony, the free matching service in Annuity123, was created to enable the consumer to browse through available retirement and annuity specialists in their area to see if they are compatible, before ever having to meet with them face to face.
Over 30 years ago Americans were forced by their employers to forego attractive and successful defined benefit pension plans for contribution 401k plans. At the time, the oldest baby boomers were new to the work force, low on savings, and had no way of knowing what lay ahead for them. Today’s baby boomers and soon to be retirees are riddled with fear and anxiety about outliving their savings and income. However, only a small portion of these soon to be retirees are prepared for this. The next decade will reveal just how real this problem is, and how important it is to alleviate the upcoming income shortfalls.
By first educating Arizona consumers, and then matching them up with experts in their area for further advice, Annuity123 hopes to make a big impact in the retirement field. The Annuity123 designers found that there was no great system in place to make sure consumers were dealing with legitimate, ethical, and knowledgeable experts.
Annuity123 was designed to educate consumers across the country about the variety of means to contractually guarantee lifetime income. The fear of outliving your money doesn’t have to be a burden. Moreover, the purpose is not only to educate consumers about the importance of lifetime income and creating their own pension annuity, but to provide access to the best retirement income and annuity specialists in the country.
