Your Variable Annuity should be reviewed regularly and especially before you make any big changes.

Variable Annuity Complexities

Whether you’re working with a firm like Archetype Wealth Partners or on your own to determine the best Next Steps for your Variable Annuity, an effective review process is crucial. The complexity involved in reviewing your variable annuity is just one reason to hire an expert.

Variable Annuity Sales Incentives

Most Commission-Based Financial sales professionals don’t have the expertise to do a thorough analysis of your variable annuity in the context of your overall financial plan. However, those same sales professionals do have significant incentives to recommend replacing your current variable annuity.
