Annuity Shopping

Will you be getting the best possible deal – i.e. highest income / competitive fees?

Believe it or not, this is the easiest part of the annuity purchasing process and no wonder websites and brokers may such a big thing of these.

There are normally three factors that will help you get the best rate:

  • Have you applied for an enhanced annuity and given all of your medical information?
  • Have you obtained quotes from all the top paying companies? - some companies who don’t pay commission may not be listed on some websites or brokers
  • Are you paying too much in fees / commissions? – Many people are surprised at the high commissions paid on annuities and the cost of advice maybe lower than commission
Shopping for the best annuity

I make an important point: before you shop around for the best annuity you must know what you are shopping for in the first place - it is no use getting the highest annuity if you dont have the right options or it is the wrong soloution for you
