As t. said, the product this annuity pimp -er, I mean, "financial planner"- is trying to sell you is a waste of money. See:

http://www.fool.com/retirement/annuities/annuities.htm

The Consumer Reports website (if you're a subscriber) will tell you the same thing.

But why do you think you need a financial planner? Just live below your means and dump your money into Vanguard (or Vanguard via a Scottrade account).

There really isn't much to it.
