There’s a big problem with these numbers, because most people who own annuities don’t really know what they own or why they own it… Other than the fact that their trusted advisor said an annuity is what they needed.

The truth about annuity strategies keeps unfolding with Stan The Annuity Man’s most recent revision of his comprehensive Annuity Stanifesto book. As a national consumer advocate for annuities, Stan has made it his mission to educate people about the world of annuities and how they could possibly work for a specific situation.
The Annuity Stanifesto contains the most up-to-date facts for people who own an annuity or are thinking about buying one and want to make an informed decision.
“As of 2011, there were over $2 trillion dollars in annuities held in the U.S., and that amount grows by over $200 billion annually,” says Stan The Annuity Man. “There’s a big problem with these numbers, because most people who own annuities don’t really know what they own or why they own it… Other than the fact that their trusted advisor said an annuity is what they needed.”
The Annuity Stanifesto is designed to help people assess their need for a possible “transfer of risk” strategy using an annuity to contractually solve for principal protection, income for life, legacy, or long term/confinement care. When considering an annuity for a personal portfolio, people must ask themselves, ‘What specific goal or problem am I looking to solve?’ and, ‘Will the contractual guarantees within that policy solve that specific goal or problem?’ according to Stan The Annuity Man.
The book explains all the annuity product categories, the upside and downside of each, along with Stan The Annuity Man’s personal ‘Stanalysis’ of each strategy. Stan also explains how these sometimes controversial products should fit in a person’s portfolio and if an annuity is right for their specific situation.
Every plan Stan The Annuity Man puts together is based solely on the contractual guarantees that the policy will provide, not what it might hypothetically provide. His goal is to find the right solution with the right company to contractually solve a person’s specific goals.
