Retirement isn’t cheap. You may have heard that you will need 70 percent to 80 percent of your pre-retirement income, but the real figure might even be higher, depending on your circumstances.

Taken together, these factors highlight the need to identify as many sources of retirement income as possible – and one of these sources might be an annuity.
