Annuity information is only as good as the source. Therefore, you must know what the source of information is about annuities before taking the recommendation. For example, of course if you listen to annuity salespeople all day, you're going to believe that annuities are the solution to all of your financial problems. Ask a shoe fixer if your shoe needs fixing and the answer is inevitably going to be yes.
On the other hand, if you listen to the news, you are going to get the BAD, the BAD, and the ugly about whatever it is. Dateline NBC, for example, exposed (and rightfully so) many issues dealing with annuities. However, they didn't deal with all the issues nor did they suggest proper solutions.
It is hard to find good annuity help. There is no doubt about that. However, if you look at the source, you can often determine whether it is worth listening to that source.
With all that said, let me explain why 'Annuities: The Shocking Truths Revealed' is a trusted source of information on annuities. First and foremost, we don't sell annuities. So there is no vested interest to get you to want one. And we don't sell other investments (at the time I am writing this article) or offer investment alternatives. We are soley providing UNBIASED information on the GOOD, BAD, and UGLY about annuities. That is it. YES, we do charge for our product, however, barely enough to make any profit whatsoever. It cost us a lot of money to run our site.
If you want the absolute best unbiased information on annuities, it is best to check out AnnuityMD.com and get the annuity help you are looking for. I promise you it will not be a waste of your time or your money. And by the way, if you call me, I actually answer my phone and would welcome any kind of conversation regarding annuities.
And one more thing---'The Shocking Truths' is not a 5 page stupid enticement for annuities like most other annuity 'books' or 'documents' are. It is a fully detailed and extremely deep knowledge base on what you need to know to make a good purchasing decision. Thorough and PRACTICAL information.
Hope that helps.

Annuity lawsuits are becoming a lot more prevalent these days. Fixed annuities, Equity Index Annuities, and Variable Annuities are all coming under scrutiny and justifiably so. There has been tremendous abuse connected to annuity sales to consumers.
However, many people are now finding that there is some recourse. But, the challenge is proving that there was some sort of negligence or willful misconduct. So that becomes the challenge. The reason is simple. You may be in your annuity and know that there is something wrong but not quite know how to pinpoint it. Or worse, you may absolutely know there is something wrong with your annuity but not know EXACTLY what is wrong. YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
Annuity Lawyers: What's the Problem?
Sometimes, unless you are well versed with annuities, it is hard to what the problem is with your annuity. You may have lack of performance due to high fees, a poor crediting method, a tax time-bomb, limited liquidity, or one or more other problems, but not quite know to what degree or to what extent. But that is quite critical when going to an attorney. Chances are the attorney, unless he specializes in annuity lawsuits and is very familiar with the inner workings of annuities is NOT going to know how to assess the TRUE DAMAGE that was done to you in your annuity. Let me repeat---most attorneys don't know how to assess the damage done to you unless they are annuity and financial experts and most of them aren't. So you have to hope that they have the right experts to assist them. Also, they have to also be on top of securities, insurance, and other complex laws. Otherwise, your case may not be successful and you have lost your shot, and unless the attorney is on contingency, paid a lot of money for nothing.
The Major Key to Recovery from Your Unsuitable Annuity
Knowing what your losses or damages are play a MAJOR role in recovery from your annuity company as well. Thesefactors are critical to get right if you are torecover what you are entitled to from the annuity company. If you cannot quantify your damages and explain why it shouldn’t have happened, then how can you have recourse? You must be able to prove that there are damages, the extent of the damage, and how the agent and or the annuity company are responsible. So unless you can do that or have a resource to do that (if you don't, we're going to show you how), your recovery efforts will probably be unsuccessful.
So the bottom line is, annuity lawsuits have been more prevalent but the ones that have gone favorably for the consumer have been the ones where the consumer goes in with a FULL assessment of the true damages properly documented and the right argument for why they should get out of penalties, recover lost interest, etc.. Stay tuned for the next several days and weeks to learn in full detail what to look for and how to take action. Alternatively, if you feel like you are in an unsuitable annuity and want to take action right away, feel free to visit AnnuityMD.com to begin the discovery process. IGNORANCE IS NOT BLISS

Bonuses can be very tricky. There is ALWAYS a price to pay for these bonuses. It's not bad if you TOTALLY understand the consequences and are willing to pay the price, however, if you don't completely understand, you could find yourself in a big mess.
Bonuses need to be used with care. Again, the cost of taking a bonus is sometimes SEVERE. I promise you that 98% of people who look at the bonus are very unclear of what price they have to pay for that bonus. Do you think the insurance company is just being nice to you because they like you? ABSOLUTELY not. do your homework.
The greatest resource I can suggest to you is at http://www.annuitymd.com/. No, it's not free----but I guarantee you that Ignorance will cost you more.
I hope you are willing enough to at least listen. If you are thinking about the Allianz Endurance 15 or any other bonus equity index annuity, you better do your homework....it's your money---you better take care of it.
Ignorance Isn't Bliss....
