Pahut said, “During the pandemic, about 100,000 people moved to Montana; we noticed that the finance professionals in the other state were still managing their financial affairs. My goal is to develop a relationship with my clients so that the rapport and trust is so high that they see the great financial tools I can offer them to consider. I believe risk mitigation is a huge need for all of my clients and wherever possible I feature asset classes that offer guaranteed income opportunities, such as annuities.
Guaranteed income opportunities, also known as “GICs,” provide retirees with a guaranteed stream of income from annuities that lasts for the rest of their lives. This type of arrangement can be particularly advantageous for those who are concerned about outliving their retirement savings.
However, not all GIAs are alike. Some offer more flexibility than others, and it’s essential to understand the features and benefits of each before making a decision. Here is an overview of some things to consider when evaluating different IAM options:
- How long does the revenue stream last?
Some GIAs only provide income for a certain number of years, while others pay as long as you live. If retirees are worried about running out of money in retirement, a GIA that pays for life can boost their confidence.
- How much income will they receive?
The amount of income they will receive from a GIA depends on several factors, including the size of the initial investment and the performance of the underlying assets. Some GICs also offer inflation protection, which can help keep purchasing power intact over time.
- What are the fees and expenses?
All investment products have fees and expenses, and GIAs are no exception. Be sure to compare the fees charged by different providers before deciding.
- What are the risks ?
No investment is without risk, and GIAs are no exception. It is important to understand the risks involved before making a decision.
- What are the tax implications?
The tax treatment of GIAs may vary depending on the type of product and its structure. Making the decision to purchase a GIA is an important decision. But with careful consideration, it can be a valuable addition to your retirement income plan. Be sure to consult a tax advisor before making a decision.
