There is no better time to talk to clients and prospects about Annuities than in June which is National Annuity Awareness Month. This creates an opportunity to bring up how Annuity products can help clients reach their retirement goals. These goals can vary by client depending on their age, time horizon, and objective. Some clients are good candidates for Annuities and others are not. Finding the right Annuity for your client is important, and today’s annuity products are designed to fit many different goals.
People are living longer these days and looking to retire earlier. Therefore, today people are looking to fund a much longer retirement phase of life. With respect to life expectancy, the Social Security Administration states, “Americans turning 65 now are expected to live to age 85, and one in three 65-year-olds will live past age 90”. Most Americans also want to continue the level of lifestyle in retirement that they enjoyed while working of course. This presents some concerns such as, “how do I make sure that I don’t run out of money?”, or “How much should I take out of my retirement account each year?”.
Because of these concerns and the innovation of the products, Annuities, and more specifically Fixed Indexed Annuities, have become increasingly popular sources for income in retirement. Benefits like principal protection, growth potential, and lifetime income have become more appealing to retirees who are searching for safe havens for retirement assets. In fact, in 2018 78% of American’s said their top retirement goal was Lifetime Income, 76% said Income Stability, and 71% said Principal Protection (IALC, Retirement Readiness 2018). All these objectives are features of the Fixed Indexed Annuity, specifically those with Lifetime Income components.
