(Admit it - just now, when you read the song title in the sentence above, the dulcet tones of Mick Jagger’s voice just started playing in your head, and they'll be there all day - lol).
Well, it’s been 56 years since that song was released, and I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news for my fellow Baby Boomers.
With apologies to the Rolling Stones and the song’s composer, Jerry Ragovoy, I’d like to suggest a new title and lyric that’s more appropriate for us Baby Boomers:
“Time Is NOT On Our Side (But We Continue To Act Like It Is)”
Since 2011, Baby Boomers have been retiring at the rate of 10,000 people per day. Many of my fellow Baby Boomers are not quite as carefree and “cavalier” as they were in the bygone decades – perhaps you’re one of them.
Over the years, they’ve seen their 401(k) accounts go up and down like a yo-yo, through several “bull” and “bear” markets. But now that they’re older, they’re realizing that, indeed, time is NOT on their side any more. Their risk tolerance has gone to zero, and they just want to "keep the money they have."
The thought of losing money again, like they did during the various “bear” markets over the years, is not exactly what they're wanting, now that they're retired.
They realize they DON'T have the time to wait for the stock market to recover – they’re 65, 70, 75 years old and they know they truly cannot afford to take another “hit” to their retirement accounts like they did when they were younger…
And, if that’s not enough, most Baby Boomers don’t have pensions from their former employers, so right now their only source of a guaranteed monthly paycheck is their Social Security income.
However, there is a specific financial instrument that solves, once and for all, the problems Baby Boomers are facing of a) losing money, and b) outliving their money - it's called a Fixed Index Annuity.
Here's a short "Annuity Primer" video to give you a "40,000 ft." overview of annuities - it specifically addresses the two problems mentioned above:
Here’s a link with information specifically about a Fixed Index Annuity:
With the “stroke of your pen,” you can literally “insure and guarantee” the money in your retirement account – you can “insure and guarantee” some of it or all of it – it’s up to you. And, the cost to get your money "insured & guaranteed" is a big, fat $0…
It really is “just that easy” to protect your life savings and “turn the retirement account you have into a retirement account you want.”
