Mary’s Story

  • Name: Mary
  • Former profession: High school English teacher
  • Dream retirement role: Give tours of Kitty Hawk, the birthplace of aviation, from a biplane

Why she can’t wait for retirement:

“Retirement means time to enjoy life – working on the things that we find fulfilling and enjoyable.”

- Mary

Retirement concern:

“What will we do ... if we get sick or if our children need some help?”

- Mary

Best advice from the financial professional:

"Take inventory of what you have – what you own, what you owe, your sources of income ... If there’s a little bit of shortfall, that’s not a problem, we just need to know today ... so we can adjust for the future. "

- Mary

Annuities are one of the types of financial products that can provide guaranteed lifetime income payments, and retirees who have an annuity feel more confident about their retirement than those who don’t.1

Mary is ready- now it’s your turn.
