Snoring ‘can boost retirement cash’

Blog posted

10th October 2012

I wanted to share this item with you. If you haven’t read or heard about it before, research has uncovered that heavy snorers are able to pick up higher annual incomes through annuities.

Anyone who has sleep apnoea, of which snoring is a symptom, can pick up thousands of pounds of additional income if they declare their symptoms when buying an annuity.

According to experts, six million people in the UK over the age of 65 have been diagnosed with sleep apnoea.

And there may well be other complaints which enable retirees to receive enhanced annuity payments, according to MGM Advantage, the company behind these latest statements.

While on the face of it this may seem a clever marketing ploy to gain some annuity business, no-one can argue with the facts presented and definitely worth exploring further with your own independent financial advisor if you haven’t already.

AgeUK has promoted this via their website this week and so we wanted to ensure our blog readers are aware too.
