Finding a Pre-Issued Annuity™ expert advisor…
Unfortunately most advisors that have the all around qualifications that you need are already enlisted at the firms that are harvesting these payment streams. There are a few others however if you look around on the internet or you happen to know someone well that is connected to this industry. Our website visitors have the advantage of using the same independent expert attorney that we frequently refer some of our clients too. This is one area where we may be able to assist you further after discussing your situation to find out if a Pre-Issued Annuity™ seems suitable then we will gladly refer you to our expert attorney his retainer will typically be around five hundred dollars and he will be paid something additional by the company that brings the Pre-Issued Annuities™ to market however your net yield that is agreed too will not be affected. For example if you paid an attorney $500.00 to represent your best interest in securing a Pre-Issued Annuity™ and he brought you one that produced a six percent APY he or she then received a one time payout of fifty basis points as his full compensation your six percent APY would not be affected. These companies always pay someone a commission it might as well be an expert attorney advisor that can charge you a much lower direct retainer since the company pays him a nice administrative fee or commission whatever you may choose to call it. The attorney is your safety net he or she is a skilled professional that has a vested interest in your success if he or she does not act in your best interest they could lose their practice unlike an less competent commissioned sales person that says I am sorry and moves on to his next client with little or no obligation to you.
