When we’re in the workforce during our accumulation years, the last thing we want to see with our finances is too much stability. We want growth, and lots of it!
Because we expect to continue earning and to be contributing to our retirement savings during this time, we can offset a certain amount of losses in exchange for the chance of a greater return on our savings.
But during retirement, and even in the years shortly before we retire, we need to preserve our wealth – decreasing our risk. We don’t want to face the same risks which would have been acceptable just a few years earlier.
Once we enter retirement, we don’t want to worry about having enough money to pay our bills, and to be able to participate in the activities we enjoy. At this point in our lives, we don’t have time to earn additional income to cover any losses.
One way to avoid those worries, and to have peace of mind instead, is to lock in guaranteed rates. An annuity is one way of doing that.
At Texas Financial and Retirement, we can guarantee* 3.60% income for 5 years.
Guarantees are backed by the claims-paying ability of Colorado Bankers Life Insurance Company.

Annuity withdrawals are subject to income tax and withdrawals prior to age 59½ may also be subject to an IRS penalty.
