  • Ronald Reagan said, "Inflation is as violent as a mugger, as frightening as an armed robber and as deadly as a hit man."

    When living on a fixed income, inflation has a profound impact on your quality of life. When you are working – your wages generally rise as the costs of goods and services increase. Your earnings "keep pace with inflation", so normal inflation is not generally a big concern. However, when you are living off of savings – inflation literally robs you of income.

    A guaranteed lifetime annuity with inflation protection might be one of the best tools for retirees who have some savings. You can use our annuity calculator to explore the cost of buying guaranteed income.
