My niece, who recently lost her husband to cancer, is being advised to consider selling some of her assets of various types and funding an annuity for her retirement (she's 64). She's asked for my advice.

I must admit I've never been involved with or researched the subject of annuities before. If anyone has some advice or knows where I can obtain good information on the subject, please point me in the right direction. Thanks.


P.S. While I've been a (very) long time Fool, I've never posted on nor visited this board before.
