Leading Retirement Annuity Company Opens Detroit Office

Leading Online Retirement Income Consumer Education and Financial Services Company Opens Satellite Office in Detroit, Michigan

Annuity Watch USA strengthens its retirement income planning foothold in Detroit Warren Livonia MSA

Annuity Watch USA Detroit OfficeDALLAS, TX – July 15, 2015 – Annuity Watch USA, a financial services company serving consumers nationwide, has opened a satellite office in Detroit, Michigan to help serve the retirement income planning needs of retirees and pre-retirees throughout the Detroit Warren Livonia MSA. Now, Detroit area residents can enjoy personalized retirement income planning assistance in addition to access to tools and educational resources available on the website.

The Government Accountability Office (GAO) recently reported that a husband and wife both aged 65 have approximately a 47% chance that at least one of them will live to his or her 90th birthday, and a 20% chance of living to his or her 95th birthday. As life expectancy continues to climb, outliving one’s assets has become the number one fear of many aging Americans. The fear is magnified when baby boomers consider the amount of income they will need to meet annual living and health care expenses during retirement:

  • An April 2015 Insured Retirement Institute survey found that only 27 percent of baby boomers are confident they will have enough money to last throughout their retirement, down from 33 percent just four years ago.

To help make ends meet, baby boomers are the first generation in American history to see themselves working longer, retiring later, and even working part time in retirement. According to the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies15th Annual Transamerica Retirement Survey, when it comes to baby boomers and retirement:

  • Only 15% have a written retirement strategy
  • 36% expect Social Security to be their primary source of retirement income
  • 65% plan to work past age 65
  • 41% are proactively keeping their skills up-to-date so that they can continue to work long after retirement

“Baby boomers across the country are waking up with what I like to call the ‘yikes, what am I going to do about retirement income’ moment,” said Cathy DeWitt Dunn, president and founder of the Dallas/Fort Worth-based financial services company. “They are actively seeking to learn more about their options to help take control of their retirement futures. Today, we’re excited to help residents in Detroit and the surrounding area explore strategies designed to help with their retirement income needs.”

The Annuity Watch USA Detroit office is located at 4000 Town Center, 11th Floor in Southfield, Michigan 48075 in the Southfield Town Center.
