I am very wary of commission-based investments such as annuities, but from some of my reading, I think there are can be some reasonable fixed-rate annuities out there. However I would only do this when interest rates are pretty high; otherwise you are locking in a low rate for eternity. I manage my mother's retirement portfolio and I might consider doing this with a portion of her assets at some point. Not the whole portfolio, because I think I can get higher returns elsewhere. Also I am not aware of any annuities that offer any sort of inflation protection.
