Americans Lack Understanding of How Annuities Guarantee Lifetime Income

TIAA found that many Americans are unprepared for retirement in their 2016 Lifetime Income Survey. They have false confidence in where their retirement savings will take them and are not aware of the annuity products that could secure their financial safety in retirement. In the Plan Adviser article "Many Have Unrealistic Expectations for Retirement Savings," Karen Wittwer talked about the results of TIAA's survey of 1,000 adult Americans.

It’s a Good Time to Take Another Look at VAs

Variable annuities are the most popular annuities because they offer by far the best shot at capital appreciation. But it’s a safe bet that they haven’t been popular much of this calendar quarter, VA sales typically track the ups and downs of the stock market, and the stock market got off to an abysmal start in 2016.   Happily, the backdrop has markedly improved.
