Before you go cashing in the annuity, make sure you understand all the consequences. It isn't rocket science to manage your money at companies like Vanguard, but you sound as if you are just starting so don't go paying anything to advisors just yet until you understand exactly what they are telling you.
Or to put it bluntly, these guys will screw you out of your retirement money if you let them. They are salesmen and will promise you anything to get at your money. Listen up to the collective experience here.

Yes, I have achieved work / life balance.

Something is wrong here.

Stay put. Do not be pushed into acting.

Read every post on this forum.

Do nothing until you have read it all.

Don't just do something, stand there.

I am retired.
And I don't care how big your truck is."
