Innovative Matching Service Linking Baby Boomers to Retirement Income Specialist Goes Active In Delaware
The first free online matching service designed to help baby boomers find retirement income specialists in their local communities is now active throughout Delaware. Annuity123, an online retirement income educational portal, has opened their Annuity Harmony matching service for the benefit of all of Delaware’s residents who are in need of annuity education and retirement planning guidance. This innovative online matching service is aimed at linking individuals who are planning for their retirement with retirement income specialists who reside in their local area.
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 and had no way of knowing what lay ahead for them. Given the turbulent economy over the past decade, many baby boomers and soon to be retirees have not fully recovered from losses in their retirement plans and have anxiety about outliving their savings and income. Unfortunately, many of these soon to be retirees have not been able to achieve their desired savings target and do not have sound plan to comfortably retire at their desired time.
By first educating consumers, and then facilitating a match with experts in their area for customized advice, Annuity123 hopes to make a positive impact within the retirement field. The Annuity123 designers were driven to make sure that all individuals, regardless of their amount of personal assets, were able to be fully informed about how annuities can help address their retirement needs. Given the detailed educational material and the efficient specialist locator, this platform can play an integral part in ensuring that individuals and families throughout Delaware have an anxiety-free retirement.
