Fools rarely find annuities to be good deals, usually because of high fees. My optional retirement plan (rather than the poor state retirement plan) is in an annuity, because I have no choice, but it is with TIAA-CREF, whose fees are 1.5% to 2.5% less than the fees with my other choices! My 403(b) is with a straight mutual fund.
Here's some other sites to check out for more information about annuities:

Hope this helps.
