Can't Find Recent Annuity Thread

Sometime within the last few days I believe I saw a thread citing an annuity article that sounded interesting. I did not have time to look at it, and now I can't find it. I apologize for being so clueless on the Forum search function, but if anyone can give me a link I would appreciate it.

Thanks, Ha

Ha, I'm not aware of any recent links to annuity articles. You may be thinking of a recently departed thread started by an annuity spammer - the mods flushed it after several folks on the forum posted links to other forums to provide evidence of spam 'residue'.

It's not this one, is it?

Another annuity question

Maybe I just imagined it. I thought, I really want to look at that one, it sounds very well founded.

Fat chance I guess!

Thanks for trying, and sorry to send you on a wild goose chase.

I saw one in my RSS reader but it was pulled from the board. At a glance it looked like a sales piece.

Hello Ha - I cannot find any very recent other annuity rekated thread on this website other than the ones mentioned above. However, there are a couple of such recent threads on bogleheads'.

Annuities have many types, most not good investments for soon-to-be retirees. But....I will take a very close look at what is often called "immediate
Annuities". These products are basically pension plans you purchase. Look them up for more info. Vanguard Group has some low cost ones that I'm am looking at currently.
