For a married couple, both age 65, there is a 50% chance that one spouse will live to be 92. More critically, there is a 25% chance that one spouse will live to be 96*. This means that for 1 out of 4 couples, retirement savings need to last 30 years or more. While this data may come as a surprise, research shows that Americans are well aware of the longevity risk they face during retirement - as a full 70% of retirees have a greater fear of outliving their money than death itself**.
Guaranteed lifetime income is the challenge, and we are pleased to announce Delaware Life is once again meeting this challenge head-on through the development of consumer-driven, innovative, retirement products. A new offering, Delaware Life Target Income 10℠ fixed index annuity, is a retirement solution specifically designed for retirees seeking principal protection, growth, and lifetime streams of income.
“With the viability of private pensions and even Social Security coming into question, we realize that Americans need a retirement vehicle that will provide guaranteed streams of income that cannot be outlived. Most importantly, this income needs to be safe, dependable and protected from market volatility. This concept was the core tenet to our development of the Target Income 10℠ fixed index annuity,” said Dan Buermann, Director of Product and Business Development at Delaware Life.
WealthVest, a financial services distribution firm with a nationwide footprint, will be supporting the Target Income 10℠ launch through a blend of financial professional education, client seminars, and operational support.
“We could not be more pleased to be supporting the launch of the Target Income 10℠ annuity, a solution which so beautifully addresses the biggest challenges facing American retirees. We are confident that this innovative product will help investors - and financial professionals - feel more confident when planning for a 30- or even 40-year retirement,” added Wade Dokken, President, and Co-Founder of WealthVest.
