Greetings, Al, and welcome. You asked:

<<My wife and I have three annuities with different firms. Do we have to start taking money from them like IRAs at 70 1/2?>>

If this is an ordinary annuity product that you purchased outside of an IRA or outside a qualified retirement plan like a 403b/401k, then there is no required distribution at age 70 1/2. The terms of your contract will dictate when withdrawals in the form of the annuity must begin.
