Kim Butler and Todd Strobel respond to a user-question about annuities, analyzing annuities to see what they can and can’t do for you. Kim and Todd take a hypothetical annuity through the gamut of our Prosperity Principles. Kim defines the different types of annuities. Todd uses the Prosperity Principles against annuities.
