W.M. Durham Associates LLC is an independent financial services firm that creates retirement strategies using a variety of investment and insurance products.  Investing involves risk, including the potential loss of principal. No investment strategy can guarantee a profit or protect against loss in periods of declining values. Any references to protection benefits or lifetime income generally refer to fixed insurance products, never securities or investment products. Insurance and annuity product guarantees are backed by the financial strength and claims-paying ability of the issuing insurance company.  WM Durham Associates LLC nor any of its employees provide legal, tax or accounting advice. You should consult your legal and/or tax advisors before making any financial decisions.
