Find your Yellow Brick Road to Financial Freedom

5 minute read

“My fans and I have traveled this Yellow Brick Road together for decades, and I want to do what I can to make sure that what lies beyond it in their retirement is as fulfilling as possible.” 

–Elton John

In 2022, the Alliance was Elton’s first and only nonprofit tour partner and the sole presenting partner of his blockbuster farewell tour across North America. That experience gave us the amazing opportunity to talk with thousands of fans at more than 65 live concerts and hear from millions of Elton followers online. Through that, one thing became abundantly clear – planning for the next chapter in life was on their minds and hugely important to them.

Much like Elton, many of his fans were closing one window but making plans to open a new one. Retirement, however you define it, was something people were excited about and looking forward to. But many were also unsure of how to prepare and how to pay for what could be many decades in retirement. They needed help in figuring that out.

That’s why in 2023 we’re continuing our partnership with Elton and his husband David Furnish to help you make a plan for your next chapter. And together, we’re spreading the word about the importance of having enough protected income to have the financial freedom to follow your Yellow Brick Road to what’s next.

Elton has long advocated for human dignity and economic equality for all. And in these volatile and uncertain economic times, where uncertainty reigns, he and David want you to know the importance of having a plan that gives you greater peace of mind and certainty. Because, as Elton says, “Secure tomorrows are something we all deserve.”

Following his Yellow Brick Road By Protecting His Retirement

Mike Gomez, Elton John’s head production rigger, tells us how an annuity gives him the certainty and peace of mind to pursue what’s next in life.

“I’m sure my fans have big plans for their next chapter just as I do. I want them to follow their own Yellow Brick Road so they can continue to check off all of those amazing things on their bucket list. Over the past year, thanks to the Alliance, David and I have learned that protected income from an annuity can help make that possible. I want all of my fans out there to learn about that, so they can enjoy the lifestyle they want.”
