1. Annuity Pros, Cons, and What Are They Anyway? Joe Allaria 33:04

Annuities seem to have a negative connotation within the financial industry, but do they deserve it? Are annuities good or are they bad? Because there are so many different types of annuities, it's hard to generalize that they are either good or bad. Each annuity should be evaluated independently based on each individual’s situation.
