Most people don’t know how they can use annuities and insurance to boost their charitable giving.

“People are saying, ‘Don’t buy annuities now because interest rates are low,’ ” says John Jordan, CFP, an insurance and estate planning specialist. The other common argument is that life insurance is expensive, but Jordan asks, “Expensive compared to what?”
