Greetings, Setsail, and welcome. You wrote:<<I am considering early retirement at age 55. I understand I can use my 401k to buy an annuity and then draw an annual or monthly amount.I would appreciated any input on annuities, how they work and the tax impact. Thanks >>For the Foolish take on annuities, see post number 11725 on this board at http://boards.fool.com/registered/Message.asp?id=1040013002967001&sort=postdate. That will give you an idea of what you may expect from an annuity product. As a young retiree, it may not be the right choice for you. For most Fools, it isn't a highly regarded product either as an investment or as a continuing source of income. The reasons are outlined in the post I cited previously.Regards..Pixy
