Association health plans, or AHPs, allow small businesses within an industry to group employees into a single pool. Doing so makes purchasing group health insurance plans much more affordable by helping small businesses to overcome the huge cost of meeting state health insurance coverage regulations.
While the House has been successful in passing AHP bills in past years, the Senate has been less willing to do so. But as the health insurance crisis grows, we may see the Senate put the AHP bill into action this year.
We had heard about annuities and were investigating them for our IRAs. We also heard bad things about pushy brokers over the years. So when we went to the ImmediateAnnuities.com site we were skeptical about calling them. But whenever we called their staff was really friendly. They answered all our questions and one of their reps even told us that at our ages there was no advantage to buying the annuity with our IRAs. These guys are really honest!
