NEW YORK, Feb. 18, 2014 /CNW/ - Planning for retirement is no small task. Perhaps the chief concern is making sure you have enough money for a retirement that could potentially last 30 years or even longer. To help clients make sure they have enough money for those later years, First Investors Life Insurance Company today announced the launch of its Single Pay Longevity Annuity.
The new single premium deferred income annuity offers individuals the opportunity to receive guaranteed future retirement income in exchange for a single purchase payment. "We are very excited about this new annuity product," says Carol Springsteen, President of First Investors Life. "It is designed for individuals who seek a 'financial backstop' that guarantees supplemental income as part of a diversified retirement strategy. The annuity is intended for those individuals who don't need income now, but would like to lock in a future guaranteed income stream during their retirement years."
Key features include:
- Flexibility Contracts can be issued from ages 45-80; plus, you have an opportunity to change your income start date.
- Simplicity Easy to understand and integrate into your retirement income strategy.
- Predictability Provides guaranteed lifetime income that is not subject to stock or bond market risk.
- Security You have the peace of mind of knowing your payments begin on the date you select and will arrive on the same day every month for the rest of your life.
- Higher Income The longer you defer the income start date, the higher your monthly payments will be.
- No annual or recurring fees or charges
The Single Pay Longevity Annuity offers two convenient monthly payout options*:
- Single Life Provides lifetime income benefits for one person only.
- Joint & Survivor Life Provides lifetime income benefits on two individuals as long as one or both are living.
"What's so appealing about this product," adds Springsteen, "is that it acts like a pension and provides regular payments for as long as you live. You simply make an initial payment, select a future income start date, at which time you will begin to receive guaranteed monthly income payments for the rest of your life. As a result, you don't need to worry about outliving your retirement assets."
