    Annuities as a whole are not bad. However annuitizing an atinuny is absolutely nuts. Some annuities now have what are called living benefits. These allow you to draw money and yet still have a death benefit for your heirs. After the market fall in 2000-2001 their were annuities out there that may only have a contract value of 75,000 and yet a death benefit of 500,000. These new living benefit annuities were put into place to protect against this happening. More details upon request.
