a sound credit rating from places like A.M.Best

Do be sure that the company you are dealing with is listed in AM Best.

And don't be surprised to find that companies like Vanguard are not listed in AM Best. Instead they too are resellers of annuities offered by major companies and then rebranded. I think someone mentioned before that Vanguard's annuities come from (as I recall) Ohio Life Insurance Co.

Before you sign, before you commit your funds, make sure you understand all the details including who stands behind the contract.
