I have variable life insurance policy I no longer need as insurance. I am considering rolling it into a variable annuity offered by TIAA-CREF as they have, what appears to be, the only annuity worth the investment. Otherwise I would cash it in and lose the 28% in hopes of getting it back in the stock market. Since I hope to retire in ten years, 28% seems a big chunk. Any creative ideas?
