Gnfin ,

   This is confusing .

Annuity claims over what period ?

I point out that in an earlier post you stated the figure to be

" companies are required to have such as Allianz at $1.40 per hundred in reserves."

Not  $140 per $100 .   Would you clarify these points please.

Whatever tanks , resurges.....that has been the history of the stock market....the foolish are the ones that buy when things are going great and stock prices are threw the roof....these same people are the ones to sell at the first sign of any trouble...they don't research, and analyze the information..they are just "bandwagon" people....they follow the other sheep......sad but true...the prudent know that when these "bandwageners" start to sell, that soon after prices fall and that is when they come in and buy...just don't get greedy.....never have all your eggs in one basket.

Glow, I agree completely. I am a 35 year veteran of the stock market and it has been very VERY good to me over the long term. Playing the market is not for the fainthearted. If you don't have the stomach to hold on through the ups and downs that are natural for the market, you really need to get out. I personally feel that it's a huge judgemental blunder to sell all stocks now in preparation for a flu pandemic. Anyone who advises this is just...well, irresponsible. Of course, I make this as a general statement, directed at no one in particular (gnfin).Confused
I do everything my Rice Crispies tell me to....

Cash?????  in reserves?  nuts... I suppose it is in a warehouse of banded $100 bills.   No way.

All that money is invested in a variety of ways.  In the financial context, some "available" reserves must not be tied up in non-liquid investments, like buildings and real estate.

Most likely, the military would run the power plants and such.  If a pandemic is anything even approaching what's usually quoted, we're not going to keep our troops overseas, when the same thing will be going on there (likely much worse).
