The first free online matching service designed to help baby boomers find retirement income specialists in their local communities is now live throughout Massachusetts. Annuity123, the online retirement income educational portal, has opened their Annuity Harmony matching service for the benefit of all residents in Massachusetts who are in need of retirement income planning guidance. This innovative online matching service is aimed to link retirees with retirement income specialists whose practice is 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, 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. Unfortunately, many of these soon to be retirees are still not fully prepared.
By first educating consumers, and then matching them up with experts in their area for further advice, Annuity123 hopes to make a positive impact within the retirement field. The Annuity123 designers found that there was no great system in place to make sure consumers were able to be fully informed of how annuity products work while also providing an easy venue for contacting a specialist within their respective cities when need of further clarification or guidance.
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 easy access to the best retirement income and annuity specialists in the country. By first educating 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. Annuity123 is owned by Annuity Think Tank, LLC.
