What if you had a guaranteed income for as long as you live? How would that change your life?Even aside from the obvious financial security that assured monthly income can bring, payouts that are guaranteed not to go down no matter how much the market may fall can also yield valuable emotional and psychological perks. A variety of studies and surveys show that retirees who have guaranteed monthly income in the form of a pension or annuity tend to be happier in retirement than those who don’t.
