living longer: 5 financial realities Canadians need to face

Two Main Concerns

Our 2 main concerns will be the inability of government to preserve present day pensions and how to pay for our old age medical care. Annuities can help answer both these questions as they pay for as long as you live. And the older you are, the greater the monthly payment whether using RRSP money or savings.

And as Rob says, they have "zero-stress ownership experience."
