My mother's annuity matures on her 95th birthday, next year. She has not collected a dime from it since she initiated the policy in the 1990s. The annuity company has given her these options:take the $100,000 total value in cash (and lose 25 percent to taxes) or begin to take regular payments that are fixed at such a low amount that she would not be able to use the funds for major bills that are sure to come as her health declines.Are there other alternatives?
