>>>Immediate life annuity purchasers are leaving assets to someone. The 25%-30% of the purchase price being skimmed off in fees, commissions and costs is going to the insurance company.,<<<SPIAs don't have expenses 25% to 30% of the initial purchase.Annuities can be very expensive but it's simply incorrect to assume SPIAs have upfront costs 25%-30%.Sometiems a SPIA makes sense and sometimes they don't.Plus if you live long enough the insurance company pays you...of course that's an oversimplification but at least it's more correct than "25% to 30% of the initial purchase".
