Variable Annuity and Retirees
Many people who are retired or close to retirement put their money into variable annuities so they have guaranteed income for the rest of their lives. What they may not be told, however, is that variable annuity investment through an IRA does not give them any further tax-deferral benefit and annuities bought under such circumstances are only suitable if they come with a guarantee of lifetime income, which often costs more.

In addition to concerns about suitability, there are also concerns that variable annuity holders were not told about the risks associated with the annuity. Some insurance companies have allegedly sent letters to annuity holders, requesting that they either put more money into their annuity or that they accept a higher value on the annuity but sign a document saying they will never annuitize (receive periodic payments) the annuity.
