About all that's left to you is an after-tax annuity within which the earnings may grow tax-deferred. Around Fooldom, we don't think they meet the needs of most folks. However, they might in your case. To see if they do, check out our Annuity area at http://www.fool.com/retirement/annuities/annuities01.htm.
