About the Author
Gary S. Mettler, CFP©, CEBS, has a thirty-year, eclectic annuity career that has earned him the informal but accurate title of “the annuity maestro.” His experiences as an annuity agent included legal and actuarial training, commercial retail contracts, charitable gift contracts, structured settlements, home office annuity product design, and advanced annuity sales. As a litigation economist, he specialized in retirement plan valuation and rendered thousands of opinions regarding defined benefit and defined contribution retirement plans property matters for divorcing couples.
As a nationally published author, Mettler’s annuity articles have appeared in numerous periodicals including Benefits Quarterly, Senior Market Advisor, LifeHealthPro and Financial Planning. In addition, his white papers serve as research references for other annuity industry contributors.
Mettler began his formal education at the United States Military Academy at West Point and completed studying business economics at the University of California at Santa Barbara.

the worst advice I have ever received was from Fisher Investments to never buy an annuity, then they proceeded to cause me to lose $100K
at an advanced age when the stock market crashed and they were refusing to let me take my money out of the stock market as I kept requesting and insisting -
NOW I realize the value of a CONTRACT where no one can take your money from you --> for life, and you are guaranteed to NEVER lose that income. I have the piece of mind of two fixed income annuities (SPIA's) (and, now, planning to buy one more after reading Gary's book) AND one deferred index annuity - .
I don't have to fear running out of money - for my two fixed income annuities are paying my bills JUST as Gary said on page 1:
"A SPIA is like an old golden retriever who curls by your side next to the fireplace on those long, wintry nights of blowing snow and bitter cold many have come to regard as our current financial climate, its presence is more than welcomed. It's desperately needed".
This is EXACTLY how the fixed guaranteed income for life of my two SPIA's feels - THANK YOU GARY for validating my decision.

Single premiums are not sexy but they can solve a lot of problems. The general public needs problems solved, not a bunch of empty promises from Wall St.
