“Fun With Annuities” The Annuity Man Podcast

Nov 22, 2022

In this episode, The Annuity Man and Marcia Mantell discuss: 

  • The good news that came with inflation
  • What inflation really does 
  • Medicare Advantage or Medigap



Key Takeaways: 

  • Social security got a large boost. On the one hand, we’re all lamenting inflation, but then those who are getting social security or are waiting to claim will get the benefit of an 8.7% increase. 
  • Inflation makes us rethink priorities. It makes us have to reset our budgets and be more mindful about what we buy. 
  • To know whether Medicare Advantage is better for you or Medigap, you must decide what’s important to you. Medigap is about maximizing flexibility and having a steady budget throughout your retirement years. Medicare advantage is if you’re fine doing co-pay and being in a network. 
  • You can either get a financial advisor or do a lot of reading. There is a ton of information available; the challenge would be sorting out which information matters to you. 


"You do need a financial advisor. The good news is there is tons of information out there. The bad news is there's tons of information out there; how do you sort through it?" —  Marcia Mantell.
