Fixed Term Retirement Plan
What is a Fixed Term Retirement Plan?
A fixed term regular income with a guaranteed maturity value. Your client receives a regular income over a defined period of time and will receive a maturity amount on reaching the end of the term.
Your client can choose the income and maturity value they need, so they'll know exactly what they'll be receiving and when. They can also choose not to have a regular income and instead have only a maturity value, payable on reaching the end of the term.
- Your client can choose a term between 3 and 40 years (limited to a maximum term of 25 years for non-advised transactions).
- Your client can opt to guarantee these payments in the event of their death, up to the full term.
- Choosing a full term guarantee will cover all income payment amounts where chosen, as well as the full maturity value.
- Clients can choose payment frequencies to be monthly, quarterly, half yearly or yearly; in advance or in arrears.

Once the term of your client's plan comes to an end and we have paid your client the maturity value, set at outset, your client will receive no more income from us.
The plan does not pay an income for life. If your client uses the maturity value to provide them with further income, the value may not be enough to provide the same level of income that they were receiving during the plan term.
