I would put most of my assets in an investment providing guaranteed income even if it provides a low return. Also, if you're investing mainly in stocks, you simply don't know how well they'll do in the future. Your future nest egg is far from certain. With payday advance annuities, your income might well be lower than what you'd be able to withdraw from your stock/bond portfolio, but at least it will be guaranteed to last your whole life. You just can't count on stocks to perform when you want them to.
