That's a good article, but many of the comments with the article seemed to reflect a lack of understanding.
Too many financial instruments use the term annuity, but most people should only be looking at immediate lifetime annuities.
The author makes a good point that with interest rates being low, immediate annuities will have a low payout. I think that it is reasonable to expect that interest rates will go up.
