21 Questions from the Live Q&A “Do You Even Need an Annuity?”:
- Can you change your Beneficiary after you have signed up for a SPIA?
- Does it make any sense to have an annuity in a Roth Ira?
- Should I have annuity in my Roth?
- Don't have a ton of money, looking at retiring shortly, the agent recommended an annuity but it only has a "B" rating. I'm concerned, can't afford to lose money.
- If you move to another state or another country, does that change the terms of a SPIA?
- Why don't more couples choose the WIFE as a single annuitant instead of taking the lower-paying Joint Life? My wife is seven years younger, and there's almost NO CHANCE I'd survive her.
- I’m 44 and my wife is 41. We have 2 Roth IRA with Vanguard. We are hoping to have around $100,000 in each, once we are around 50 years old. Can I rollover both $100,000 IRA’s and buy a single
- $200000 annuity. Would there be an early withdrawal penalty since I would do the rollover before 59 1/2 years old.
- Is getting a long term care component to your annuity. It seems it is only for 5 years and seems to restrict the years it can be used. Is this correct?

- Does the 50% ratio of your total portfolio also apply to money I may want to put into MYGA's?
- Do MYGA's have a death benefit or does each charge a fee to include beneficiaries?
- Does the 50% rule apply to each or combination of husband and wife?
- We have no children, so really don't need to leave anything on the table. Any suggestions?
- lf you move to another country there is no guarantee in case the annuity company you have cannot pay you its contractual obligation.
- If spouse gets an annuity and it they pass and then goes to spouse then does that mean the kids can not get it after the other spouse dies?
- What do you feel is the lowest Comdex score we should be comfortable with?
- Can the beneficiary of MYGA with a surrender charge on the death benefit wait to take the proceeds until maturity to avoid the surrender charge?
- Can you purchase an annuity in a solo 401K?
- If you got an individual annuity with spouse is beneficiary can it then go to kids once beneficiary spouse dies? Basically can you have more than one beneficiary?
- If I have a FIA with income rider inside of a roth ira, are payments taxable AFTER account value is used up?
