Today, 76 million baby boomers are entering retirement at a rate of 10,000 per day.1 As they transition from saving to spending, they face the challenges of longer lives, increased healthcare costs, and fewer pensions. But by adding a source of protected monthly income to clients’ diversified portfolios, you can help them feel more certain about their retirement income and their lifestyle in the next chapter.

The value of diversified income sources

As clients consider how to replace their paycheck in retirement, they look to you to help them manage uncertainty and make a plan to live comfortably. By diversifying clients’ income strategies to include an annuity with optional benefits, you can provide clients with a source of income that’s protected from market losses alongside opportunities for growth to help them keep up with a long retirement. This balance can help them feel more confident about facing some of the challenges that may come their way.
