Financial Education in Maryland, Washington D.C. and Virginia

I strive to take complex financial products and decipher all of the complex terminology in simple plain working man english. As a Veteran, there could be an expletive in there but you will understand.

Maryland Annuity Resource offers free Annuity and Retirement Account education for residents living in Maryland, Washington D.C. and Virginia. There are many concepts and strategies to use to get ahead of the curve when it comes to retirement income. Annuities are one of those and we will continue to post questions and pages to help keep you informed as the economy and market changes.

We hope you enjoy all of these questions and answers we provide in plain english but if you have a specific question, please let us know and we can create a page just for your question and maybe even a video. You are important to us and we look forward to working together.

If you don’t know, you don’t know and that is the main driving factor with this website so you will know. We know what Annuities will do. We also know that if you plan and research, you will achieve financial freedom by creating an income stream that you cannot outlive. As with other Retirement accounts with complex investments as their underlying investment, there is a strong possibility for loss of principal or gains. We understand if you want to take unlimited risk, but with unlimited risk comes unlimited loss potential. We believe that Annuities are considered safe investments through a highly rated insurance company up to a certain dollar limit. Explore the site and we hope you learn something. We are not selling anything but if you select us for your purchase of an Annuity or Retirement product, we would be happy to help you. Enjoy.
