Retirement issues on voters' minds

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

American politicians will do well to concern themselves with retirement issues if the want to retain or gain office, according to the results of a poll from Americans for Secure Retirement.

ASR, which advocates tax breaks for annuity owners, found that 69 percent of voters are in favor of a law that would provide a 50 percent tax exclusion on income from payout of a lifetime annuity, up to $20,000 per year. The proposal, “Retirement Security for Life Act of 2007,” comes as traditional pensions are disappearing and Americans are responsible for more of the own retirement security.
