If you’re new to this website let me give you a quick tour and point you in the right direction.
First, a little about me…
I’m Chris Hammond. I started this website back in 2014 to help people that are nearing retirement in the next 5 years (or just recently retired). I started noticing some common issues people in this category were facing:
Anxiety about retiring – Have I saved enough money? Will I run out of money in retirement?
Questions about annuities – Why am I getting all these free dinner invitations where advisors pitch me an annuity? Are annuities a good deal or bad deal?
Questions about investing my 401(k) rollover – How do I rollover my 401(k) when I retire? How should I invest my 401(k)?
Questions about investing in general – How do I invest in retirement to help protect me from a highly volatile stock market? How do I invest to help keep up with inflation over a potential 20-30 year retirement?
And so I have written many articles addressing these topics. Articles such as:
- A Deep Dive Into A Variable Annuity Illustration
- [Case Study] How Much Do I Need To Save To Retire Comfortably?
- How To Choose The Right Annuity
- Top 10 Financial Planning Documents You Need At Your Fingertips
- 5 Myths About 401(k) Rollovers That Could Wreck Your Retirement
- What Happens if My Annuity Company Goes Bankrupt?
Check them out. It’s good reading.
I have a fantastic e-book on annuities called “How To Avoid Annuity Traps.” You can download it for free here. It’s going to show you how to make a better decision when choosing whether or not an annuity fits into your retirement plan.
And I also have a great tool to use before you roll over your 401(k) as you near retirement. It’s called “The 401(k) 10-point Checklist.” You can download it free by clicking here. It’ll help you avoid mistakes during this very crucial time in your financial life.
