Hi Carol Hosenfeld,

There are a multitude of great firms and great strategies for your retirement funds. Rather than debate the pros and cons of TIAA-CREF's various annuities, a better outcome should focus on getting your required rate of return within your timeframe. So, please elaborate on your specific situation.
Such as:
1) The approximate value of your portfolio ($$ you have to work with)?
2) How much do you need to retire (your number in dollars)?
3) When do you need the money (timeframe)?

Your time and money are more valuable when they are on your side.

You can contact us directly to discuss this in greater detail. No obligation.
It's not what you make; it's what you keep that determines your lifestyle.
