National Annuity Awareness Month
The retirement landscape in the United States is ever-changing. Individuals are living longer, working longer and needing income longer. Currently, more than 10,000 baby boomers on average are turning 65 each day and tasked with identifying how to plan financially for their golden years. Beyond this generation, younger adults are looking for ways to protect their assets while enjoying some of the market’s upside potential.
All of these reasons and more signify the prominent need for increased awareness and understanding of annuities. That’s why the Coalition for Annuity Awareness has declared June as National Annuity Awareness Month.
Since the Coalition began its outreach to the states in 2015, it has received signed proclamations from 15 states declaring June as Annuity Awareness Month. Each year, we continue our efforts to increase this number, working toward a proclamation in every state. Moving forward, the Coalition will work to underscore the importance of these state actions by seeking a Resolution in the House and/or Senate declaring National Annuity Awareness Month.
These powerful products aren’t what they used to be; rather, annuities are becoming a staple in retirement plans for young and old alike.
