Sustainable Retirement Income Planning
Sustainable retirement income planning
You’ve worked hard to save for your retirement and you want to make sure your savings generate income that lasts a lifetime.
To protect your retirement income, you need to consider:
- Longevity risk: you might outlive your money.
- Market return risk: down markets in the early retirement years may increase the chance you’ll use up your retirement savings sooner than you planned.
- Inflation risk: your retirement savings might not earn enough to keep up with the cost of living.
The lifetime income benefit option can help manage these risks and help protect your savings by providing:
- Guaranteed income for life as early as age 501
- The potential for an increase in income
- A safe transition from savings to income
Also, regardless of how the markets perform, your income amount will not decrease.1

1 Excess withdrawals decrease the lifetime income amount. An excess withdrawal is a withdrawal that exceeds the annual guaranteed income amount.
