Jerry Golden is a nationally recognized advocate for consumers planning their retirement. As an innovator, Jerry has often had to challenge the accepted wisdom of the insurance, annuity and retirement industries, and drive regulatory change where necessary. He holds two patents on the design and integration of income annuities into retirement portfolios.

Jerry is now focused on delivering his expertise to consumers by helping them create retirement plans that provide income that cannot be outlived. As a result, he founded Go2income.com, a site where consumers can explore all types of income annuity options, anonymously and at no cost.

Leading financial publications have featured Jerry's research and ideas, including Bloomberg Online, Huffington Post, MarketWatch and NextAvenue, along with numerous trade publications and daily newspapers, and his blog, Jerry Golden on Retirement, has been rated one of the top 100 retirement blogs.

Jerry held executive positions at AXA Equitable and MassMutual, was the founder of Golden American Life Insurance Company and is president of Golden Retirement Inc.
