If a guaranteed six-figure passive income is not "never worry about money again", I don't know what is.

You'd have to worry about inflation. It can quickly turn that six-figure income into a low five-figure income in today's dollars.

Suppose someone said that to you in 1975, and you'd put your money into something that didn't adjust for inflation.

You'd be 37 years older and making less than 1/4 of the income, adjusted for inflation.
