Smart Is The New Rich is the indispensable retirement guide to winning financially in the "New Normal." All-time low interest rates mixed with all-time high stock markets have put retired investors and those near retirement into the cross hairs of history. Experts agree: The markets can rise, but something has to give at some point. Where will you be when the music stops? In retirement, there are no "do overs." Smart Is The New Rich reveals your risks, considers the alternatives, and helps zero in on practical solutions.

Steve Jurich, Retirement Coach, Wealth Manager, and Founder of IQ Wealth Management, speaks more like a favorite professor than an insurance agent, or even a retirement adviser. Unlike the breed of annuity agents who use pressure tactics and tired lures like “free steak dinners” to gain captive audiences, Jurich’s priority is creating more informed consumers. He takes time to make sure his clients understand the range of options available to retirees so they become better educated investors on the whole. That investment of time is a significant one for Jurich (pronounced “Jur-itch”), but he believes the results his clients see in their portfolios speak for themselves. It’s been said that “knowledge is power,” and when that knowledge is applied wisely, Jurich believes it can lead to a desirable destination: lasting wealth. Besides his role as a Wealth Manager (, Jurich is a leading expert on Hybrid Index Annuities and Index Universal Life Insurance ( . He is the Editor-in-Chief of, and host of the popular radio show, Journey to Wealth, on Money Radio. His company, LYON Pension Group, specializes in defined benefits and profit sharing plans for business.

Phoenix 401k Annuity & Annuities

Interested in learning more about Phoenix 401k annuities? At™, we take the guess work out of preparing for your retirement years. Everyone would like to look forward to a financially stable, comfortable retirement. If you’re considering a Phoenix 401k annuity and want to learn more, you have come to the right place. We offer the education, guidance and expertise necessary to help you make the most wise decision for your particular situation.

What is a Phoenix 401k annuity? It can be a smart way to avoid the stock market loss and excessive fees when the day comes to roll over your 401k or 403b into a secure income and growth IRA. If you are already retired or ready to pick a retirement date, wouldnft it make sense to safely secure your 401k with a rollover into a guaranteed, principal protected IRA with enhanced income benefits? With a Phoenix insurance annuity, you no longer have to sweat the ups and downs of the market. Your future income account can grow steadily. When the market rises, you may still benefit. But when the market falls, you never participate in a loss. Guaranteed.

What type of Phoenix 401k annuities are available to you? Fixed and variable annuities are the most common. With a fixed annuity, you are guaranteed to receive a certain amount of income each month for as long as you live. Variable annuities are a bit riskier; the performance of stocks and bonds in the underlying portfolio can affect the amount of the monthly payments you receive.

Many who invest in a Phoenix 401k annuity feel that the nice thing about this type of investment plan is that they do not have to wonder where their retirement income will come from or how long it will last. With a Phoenix 401k annuity, you are assured of maintaining control over your retirement finances, especially the steady, reliable, never ending income you want. What many people like about Phoenix 401k annuities is that they are still free to place funds in other typical 401k options, while ensuring their retirement income. In fact, your retirement income is guaranteed with this annuity option, plus you maintain access to your capital.

Knowing that each month you will have predictable income is a great comfort during the retirement years. You never have to hand over a huge chunk of your life savings to market losses or fees that are so typical of 401k accounts. Why pay a fee if you donft have to?

Are 401k annuities the right option for you? At™, we know that the subject of annuities is one that is complex and not easily understood for many. We want to help you make the smart decision for YOU. Let us help you prepare for retirement. Contact us any time, 24/7 for clear answers to your questions regarding Phoenix 401k annuities.

Must read for retirement planning

"Smart Is The New Rich" is a great overview of the many facets of retirement planning. It has changed my thinking about how much capital I have versus how much income I will have in retirement. The book provides easy to understand, side by side comparisons of risks and growth of hypothetical investments in Hybrid Fixed Indexed Annuities and the securities market. A good read and great reference for retirement planning for all age groups!

Straight talk about retirement strategies

The SMART thing to do is buy this book, read it, tell your friends, and keep it handy for future reference. It is an easy read, interesting, clearly written, and full of valuable information. "Smart is the New Rich" gives a practical, no-nonsense approach to the "de-accumulation phase" of investing, and is helping me sort out my retirement plan. Of particular interest is the clarification of the strengths and weaknesses of the various types of annuities. Although the charts and graphs are a bit small in the book, the Kindle version allows expansion of the text and therefore easy to read. If you are nearing retirement, and seeking a reliable and sustainable income for a lifetime, I highly recommend you read this book!!!
