Anyone know anything about this? I'm in my mid-30s and thinking about investing in this product with a lifetime income benefit rider.
In essence, I would pay a yearly premium ($15-20K) for the next 20 years and then use the guaranteed lifetime income benefit to spit off $50K-75K of yearly retire...

| Tiger Rant|| Don't over-analyze the bama game - Ex-Popcorn on 11/5/12 at 1:23 pm|
Coaching is two-fold: (1) putting together a general game plan and putting the players in a position to execute; and (2) managing the game between the lines.
No one disputes that Miles did the first. But, he failed miserably on the second. And, each is just as important as the other.

This is what obama said last night...the road will be hard but it leads to a better place.
I'm tired of platitudes. What exactly is the "better place"?? Can we put some numbers on it?
Seriously, has he ever articulated what that means in real numbers? Not something like "a place where ever...

Have you read the rulings issued by the league? Goodell basically suspended Greg for a year and will reinstate him next year if he "cooperates" as bountygate continues. It's Goodell's attempt at disuading Payton and the saints from contesting his ruling. He could have suspended him forever, 2 y...

| More Sports Board|| Kentucky is a BAD matchup for OSU. - Ex-Popcorn on 3/21/11 at 1:12 pm|
Kentucky is taller and more athletic at every position other than post.
Sullinger is better than Harrellson. No question there. He will get his.
But, Kentucky's length at the other 4 spots will cause OSU serious problems:
Liggins - 6'6"
Miller - 6'7"
Jones - 6'8"
Lamb - 6'4"
