Since its launch in 2011, Annuity411.com has been assisting consumers researching annuities by providing a centralized source for information and making independent quotes available through its vast network of independent financial professionals. Recently, the site reached an important and exciting milestone – having assisted its 10,000th consumer researching annuities for their future income needs.
The site, located at http://www.Annuity411.com, was created shortly after a highly popular report was published by the Government Accountability Office titled “Retirement Income: Ensuring Income throughout Retirement Requires Difficult Choices.” One of the solutions studied as a viable solution to help ensure income through retirement was the use of an annuity for retirement income. This is where Annuity411.com entered to fill a needed gap.
With hundreds of annuity options available for consumers to consider, Annuity411.com sought to provide an outlet for consumers to do research, and then reach out to begin comparing options and be connected with an independent financial professional. The website's stated goals are to reach, educate, and provide independent quote options for 1,000,000 consumers over the next three years. The first major milestone was recently met when the site helped educate its 10,000th consumer in 2012.
The site is primarily directed at consumers between the ages of 50-80. Consumers can request an independent quote by visiting http://quote.annuity411.com/. Quotes are provided by independent financial professionals licensed in the consumer’s state and who meet the requirements to affiliate as a network professional on the site.
“I’m excited to be a network professional with Annuity411.com,” said Knoxville, TN financial professional Brian Stivers. “The goal of the site is to empower consumers by providing educational resources and quotes to help them plan for a more secure retirement income.” Stivers is one of many financial professionals across the country who have become involved with the site, helping to promote the educational benefits the site provides.
Consumers who are in the “research and consideration phase” can visit the site directly at http://www.Annuity411.com. The site features educational articles on fixed annuities, immediate annuities, indexed annuities, and variable annuities. For consumers interested in being matched with a financial professional, they can contact the website’s consumer resource center toll-free at (855)-484-3411, which spells (855) 4-THE-411.
Annuity411.com is one of the nation’s leading providers of online education about annuities. The goal of the website is simple: help to educate as many consumers and arm them with the facts about annuities so they are in a better position to make an educated decision regarding their retirement options.
